Samantha Simms, LPC
Fully Licensed

No matter the source of your trouble, walking a difficult path is made more bearable with a trusted confidant by your side. Whether you are feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, conflicted, grieving, trying to change yourself or your relationships, adjusting to difficult life transitions, healing from past hurts or trauma, exploring intersecting identities, or are learning to recognize your unique gifts and feel good about yourself exactly as you are, my job as a therapist is to travel this road with you, utilizing my skills and training to help you identify your innate strengths, and working alongside you to create the changes you want to see in your life.

My style is conversational and inviting, and I work to fully understand each individual, as presented, throughout our work together. I like to be actively engaged in the therapeutic process without being pushy or scripted, and approach sessions with a healthy dose of warmth, curiosity, and humor. The goals, pacing, and course of our work together are developed collaboratively with you, and each session is designed with your needs in mind. While I do make use of more structured or traditional techniques as a component of therapy, I find particular joy in using emotion-focused approaches and creating opportunities for growth through creative expression. What I’m saying is, we might do some unconventional stuff like create art or make sensory slime if you’re game for that sort of thing! I believe that a little fun can make a difficult task easier, and play can serve as a tool for communication, learning, and healing.

I hold a dual Masters in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage, Couple & Family Therapy from Stetson University in Florida, and have additional training working with domestic violence and trauma. I was born and raised in Texas and currently reside in Round Rock with my partner and our menagerie of pets. I love being a therapist and consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of your journey.

I welcome people of all backgrounds and work with individuals, couples, and complex relationships. I have a particular affinity for working with the LGBTQIA+ community and neurodiversity. Please reach out to schedule your initial appointment by calling 512/201-4501, ext. 249, I look forward to meeting you!
