More About Samantha Hinnenkamp

Clinical Interests:

Therapy: interpersonal and relationship concerns, depression, anxiety, trauma (especially due to family or partner violence), grief/loss, sexual identity development, coping with the impacts of structures and society on life

Assessment: Adult testing for: ADHD/Learning Disorder, Personality/Mood differential testing

Clinical Approach:

Therapy: I recognize relationships with self, others, and community often buffers the pain which brings folks to therapy. Therefore, I incorporate a relational approach to counseling, informed by Interpersonal Process Therapy. We can use time in therapy as a “social skills laboratory” for clients to practice different relational skills, and I can support making connections between what happens in the here-and-now with patterns in client’s personal relationships outside of therapy. In session, I use a range of interventions from empirically supported treatments to address emotional, cognitive, and behavioral concerns. I utilize a critical systems lens to understand the interaction of people and their environment. In particular, I value celebrating how culture enriches our lives, and I acknowledge with clients how their cultural strengths promote well-being.

Assessment: Although our work is time-limited, I strive to be warm and approachable to clients. We use information clients share during a structured interview, feedback from loved ones (e.g., parents, partners), and assessment results to identify client concerns, diagnose (if appropriate), and provide recommendations to maximize client strengths while working with challenges.


I like to sing, be in nature, do yoga, go to live music, and contribute to community through civic engagement. I also enjoy spending time with loved ones and my pet rabbit.
