ASSOCIATE COUNSELLOR
SAMANTHA (SAM) MCGEE, PSYD, RCC

Sam is an Associate Clinical Counsellor with MindRight Counselling & Consulting. She obtained her Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Seattle, WA. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counselors (BCACC) and currently working towards her licensure as a psychologist.

Her values include addressing systemic issues, adventure, and challenges, which led her to work in various inpatient and outpatient settings. For over ten years, most were in Washington state, including acute hospitalization for severe mental health issues (including risk assessments), eating disorders, and substance abuse issues. She has experience with individual and lots of group counseling across the lifespan with; adolescents, young (emerging) adults, and adults. In addition, she has volunteered for hospice and other community organizations and churches.

Sam firmly believes in the humanistic perspective that we all will experience psychological suffering in our lifetime. The efforts to control or eliminate this often contribute to the suffering we want to avoid. She practices from a holistic and relational perspective regarding healing, understanding that change often comes from an internal connection to our authentic self. This perspective involves deconstructing our conditioned (often inflexible and rigid protective selves) and learning to relate differently to these thoughts/feelings/sensations with increased kindness, care, and compassion. Sessions are collaborative and involve verbal processing, body/somatic focus, and experiential exercises as the individual are ready. She integrates an ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), IFS informed (integrated family systems), polyvagal theory (nervous system) approach, along with compassion-based interventions and attachment theory. She has research and consulting interests in the integration of Faith and Psychology. She is passionate about unity, creating a non-judgmental space for individuals to connect deeper with their faith, struggling and wrestling with their faith/beliefs, and churches that realize the benefit of destigmatizing mental health issues in their faith communities.

Her heart intends to create honest, brave, and secure spaces so individuals feel seen. She knows what that feels like to feel unseen and learn to mask so much of your authentic self. She hopes to help develop increased curiosity and compassion in relationships (with ourselves and others) while cultivating the courage and ability to sit with difficult things (esp. emotional). She enjoys working from a neurodivergent affirming stance, especially with individuals who identify as; ADHDers, Autistic, Highly Sensitive (HSP), anxious, perfectionism, people pleasing/co-dependency, caregivers, and leaders who feel overwhelmed and shame/guilty taking care of themselves and resting.
