She most enjoys working with young adults, couples, and families. She is fluent in Spanish and has a Cantonese background. Samantha earned her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling at Suffolk University in Boston, after graduating from UMass Amherst with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, Psychology, Social Work, and Education.
