Dr. Samantha Turetsky

Postdoctoral Fellow

Hey! I’m Dr. Samantha Turetsky! I’m a CBT specialist, anxiety expert, and family therapist. I specialize in teaching children, teens, and young adults to decrease their anxiety and panic by developing coping skills that will help them improve communication, cope more effectively, and be successful in school and with friends.

CBT Specialist
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health conditions including anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, depression, school refusal, and social anxiety. I help my clients understand the link between their thoughts and behaviors and begin to shift how they think and feel so they can be happy, well adjusted, and successful.

Anxiety Expert
I work with children, teens, and college students struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, and perfectionism. I also have a sub-specialty of working with clients on the Autism Spectrum who struggle with anxiety and connecting with peers.

Family Therapist
As a family therapist, I will help you and your family get back on track. We will work together to improve communication, improve academic success, and support the social-emotional growth of your loved ones. Parenting children and teens is challenging, let’s work together to go from chaos to calm.

Hey! I’m Dr. Samantha Turetsky! I’m an academic success specialist, relationship counselor, and coping skills coach. I assist children, teens, college students, and adults who feel overwhelmed and unsure of themselves feel more confident, assertive, and passionate about life!

Academic Success Specialist
I work with students to find solutions to common academic difficulties including problems with organization, social skills, test anxiety, attention problems, and feeling overwhelmed academically. I also help high school seniors navigate their senior year with calmness and ease – because we all know how competitive it is out there with AP classes, extracurriculars, and service hours.

Relationship Counselor
Feel like you and your spouse are struggling with communication, connection, or parenting effectively? I work with parents who need additional support or could benefit from skills and feedback to make their home more peaceful and calm.

Coping Skills Coach
I teach clients of all ages how to cope with their emotions. I start from where you’re at, and build from the foundation you have in place. If your current coping skills are low, then we will begin with the basics. You will be able to go from overwhelmed or burned out to happy and empowered.
