"Therapy can be a scary (and courageous!) step to take for your wellness. I work to understand your life through your perspective, as this is after all, your journey."

About Samantha Gruber

I graduated with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in 2019. Before starting my journey as a Registered Psychologist, I spent 2.5 years post-graduation, working as a mental health and addictions counsellor while living in a small and remote community in the Northwest Territories. Through this experience, I was able to work with a diverse population experiencing a wide range of presenting issues.

You bring unique experiences, values, strengths, and knowledge to therapy that deserve to be respected and honored. I strive to establish a safe, non-judgmental space for you throughout your therapeutic process.

A few things about me:
  • There is never a season where I find it to be too cold for iced coffee
  • I am a novice photographer and my favorite subject is the Northern Lights
  • My guilty pleasure is reality TV

I use a trauma informed, strengths-based approach to treatment which means that I tailor counseling and treatment to your individual needs, while focusing on your skills.

I incorporate Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Play Therapy interventions to help you (or your young one) gain awareness and work towards your goals. I have additional EMDR training as an EMDR-Child Specialist and Level 1 Play Therapy training. I work with children, adolescents, and teenagers, ages 4 and up, and adults.
