About Samantha Dehring

A Master-level Social Worker, and clinical mental health and substance abuse therapist, with special certification from The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute’s Advanced Training in Adult Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program, and honorably discharged 1LT Behavioral Health Science Officer of the Michigan Army National Guard. In order to truly help another, I believe, strongly, it is the principal job of the therapist to take the time and rigor to truly understand the patient's world, perspective, value system and belief structure. This is integral to the treatment process. People are more than a mere diagnosis or behavior. They are a vast sum of their mind, body and spirit, of memories, heredity, beliefs, environment, experiences, emotions, strengths, weaknesses, fears, hopes, dreams and desires, successes and failures. This sum of body, mind and spirit forms the root system of either growth and progress or toxicity and stagnation in the present. I aim to provide a gateway to self-awareness, sobriety, empowerment, freedom from addiction and a kaleidoscope of mental illnesses. I won't pathologize you, but instead seek to understand you from a multi-faceted lens to help you better achieve your goals and improve the quality of your life. I am interested in you, and in raising you to your highest standard.
