Sam Zorn, MA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Hi! I'm so happy you're considering beginning therapy! I strongly believe that each therapist is a little different and its important to choose the best fit for you. Here is a little bit about me: I have worked with primarily adults and adolescents in residential facilities living with substance use disorders and other co-occurring disorders. I also have experience working with families, couples, and individuals living with mood disorders, self-harming behavior, anxiety, anger, identity/sexuality development, body image, relationship issues, self-esteem, trauma, personality disorders, and grief.

I am a multiculturally aware counselor and want my clients to find comfort in not having to explain what it means to be a part of their unique community. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming counselor who is empathetic to the specific experiences of this community. I utilize a sex positive approach in therapy, meaning I welcome and affirm sexual diversity.

I offer a warm, non-judgmental, and empathetic space for clients to work through their concerns and strive to empower clients through helping them identify what is best for themselves. Whether you feel unsure, overwhelmed, stuck, or just need a safe space to talk, I would feel honored to support you in finding peace and empowerment within your life.
