Andrea L. Sams - Licensed Professional Counselor & Certified Grief Recovery Specialist in Houston, Texas


I am a fully licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Houston, Texas near the Cypress area.  Over 18 years as a wife and being a mother, has shown me the challenges and grief that often comes as we strive to balance our sometimes-stressful lives and relationships. I have been a devoted Christian for over 22 years and I enjoy integrating Christian principles when any individual desires to have this as part of their treatment.

My areas of expertise include providing solutions for developing healthy self-esteem, guiding recovery from trauma and loss, teaching healthy ways to manage challenging mental health symptoms and facilitating growth in relationship skills. I will work alongside you to help you achieve your goals. My commitment is to use compassion and understanding as I help you build on your strengths and guide you towards the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing. I will support you by offering practical feedback and assisting you through your personal life challenges and create a highly personalized approach tailored specifically for you. (More background and training information at bottom of this page)

I also offer free workshops in the community. You can have me present at your local church or organization on important topics that affect our wellness including grief. Please feel free to contact me to schedule this. 
I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
