Samantha Straughn, MS

I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Chestnut Hill College and I am currently an Intern at Growth Opportunity Center in order to partially fulfill the requirements for a Doctorate in Psychology. In addition to the coursework required for the Psy.D. degree, I have had several years of practical experience in the field of psychology including practicums at ChristianaCare Behavioral Health Outpatient, Arcadia University Counseling Center, Psychological Services Clinic of Chestnut Hill College, and Merakey Behavioral Health, as well as working as a pre-licensed therapist at Heart Centered Wellness. At Growth Opportunity Center, I am closely supervised by Diane Sizer, Ph.D. and Rebecca Fisher, Psy.D., PA Licensed Psychologists who will be responsible for your treatment while I am in training.

My areas of interest include psychological assessment for all ages and therapy with adults. I have experience aiding with problems related to anxiety, depression, chronic health conditions, trauma, and school-related issues, and I have particular experience working with the LGBTQ+ community and adoptees. In both therapy and assessment, I attempt to meet each client where they are and tailor my approach to their needs. I enjoy working with my clients in a mutual exploration and a combined effort to provide insight and understanding.

If you have any questions or concerns about your treatment or my training and experience, please do not hesitate to contact myself or my supervisors.
