About Samantha Praus

Hello and welcome! I'm Samantha, a licensed counselor in Minnesota. I have a special interest in helping adolescents and adults experiencing life difficulties due to self-doubt, stress, worry, overthinking, perfectionism, procrastination and burnout. There’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to healing. The models I pull from are dependent upon your unique needs and healing process. My clients appreciate my warm and inviting, yet direct and straightforward approach. I am an active participant in your therapy and I will not tip-toe around your challenges. Your time is valuable and I want you to get the most out of your therapeutic journey. I genuinely know how hard it is to take those first steps towards therapy. You deserve to take care of yourself with the unconditional support of someone who is trained to help you navigate through these difficult times - please know that you are not meant to do this on your own. You are allowed to take care of yourself, and when you are ready to take the next step, I invite you to connect with me via phone or email. I offer a free 15-minute phone or video consultation so you can get a feel for whether working with me is a good fit for you. If you’re interested in learning more, get in touch. I’d love to help you get started! -Samantha *All sessions are held by phone or secure, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing (similar to Zoom or FaceTime). I am still accepting appointment requests and will happily help you navigate any concerns you have.
