About Shafinah Samsudin

About Me:
Shafinah Samsudin is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) specializing in individual and family therapy. She is a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) and a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider (CSOTP). She is also certified in Eye Movements Desensitization & Reprocessing. She also offeres supervision and consultations.

With over 10 years of experience in behavioral health and as a graduate of Marymount University with a masters degree in counseling, she is currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among her areas of expertise are addictions, co - occurring disorders, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, eating disorders, sexual behaviors, conduct disorders and oppositional disorders. Her primary focus is to build a therapeutic relationship and identify the client’s strengths to help facilitate his or her recovery, growth and maintenance. 

Shafinah's therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. She integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, she works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

Treatment Focus:
Therapy is a process that can help facilitate the changes desired in your life and to provide support and guidance during challenging times. 

Therapy can also help to understand how past experiences influence the present behaviors. Working together, we can identify negative thought patterns to begin the healing process.   
Through compassion and strength-based solutions, I help adults, teens, and young adults find growth in their lives.

You will find our work together to be a joint venture in sorting out the challenges in your life.  I see psychotherapy as a collaborative, active process between two people. I focus intentionally on developing a warm and respectful working relationship with my clients. 

I am confident that everyone has strengths to draw from, even when they find themselves in the midst of crisis. My work is compassionate, strength-based and I look forward to working with you to  achieve a more meaningful, fulfilling, and productive life.
