Samantha Ariza, LPC


Samantha is a licensed professional counselor and an EMDR trained therapist. She started her professional career as a teacher in different urban school districts, which ignited a passion for help others. She received her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kean University, a CACREP accredited program. Since beginning her clinical work, she has worked with a wide variety of populations and programs that includes CPS involved families, short-term stabilization services for adolescents and children, as well as outpatient clinics. Samantha believes in helping people find hope and restoration in the broken places of their lives, leading her to seek further training in trauma therapies like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). In addition to her work with Minding Your Mind, she is currently working in private practice in New Jersey.

Samantha is located in northern New Jersey. In-person speaking engagements beyond 90 miles may require a fee for travel expenses.
