Led by Sammy Faulkender, LCSW

Sammy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, who balances her work as a therapist with being a mom to a rowdy set of identical toddler twins. Her approach as a therapist is to provide clients with a warm and non-judgmental space to explore their thoughts, feelings, and shifting identities, while also providing concrete tools to aid in managing the hardest parts of parenthood - heightened anxiety, depressive periods, ambivalence, balancing work and home, or finding that ever-elusive parenting “groove". Her background in community mental health, social work, and trauma-informed care is reflected in her dedication to understanding the impact of systemic influences on our unique experiences. She also brings extensive knowledge around child development and parenting strategies through her training with UC Davis' PC-CARE program. She is an introvert at heart and is happiest when she is reading, cooking, or spending time with friends and family.
