Johnetta N. Sam
As a recent graduate of the University of The District of Columbia Mental Health Counseling Program, I transitioned as a Clinician-in-Training to the Administrative Coordinator while I study for the National Counselors Exam (NCE).
My goal is to be a culturally competent counselor who utilizes a variety of clinical interventions to meet the needs of my clients. I utilize a variety of approaches to counseling including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness practices. I strongly believe that counseling consists of a collaborative relationship that promotes positive change from a strengths-based perspective. I have experience working with youth as well as adults who battle with various mental health disorders.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, vlogging, reading, and engaging in community service. I make sure that I also engage in self-care practices on a regular basis. I love a relaxing spa day filled with pampering and peace.
