Dr. Leah Samler is a Clinical Psychologist in Chicago, Illinois who specializes in anxiety, depression, and trauma. Her practice is open to individual adults across the lifespan, as well as couples.
Clients often come to Dr. Samler when facing anxiety or distress over a major life change – such as moving to a new city, making a change in their relationship, or switching jobs. For others, the catalyst might be internal; they might start to feel residual effects from a traumatic event or history like sexual assault, abuse, domestic violence, or painful childhood memories.
Dr. Samler works with each individual to ensure they receive a comprehensive, in-depth assessment before moving forward with treatment. Her approach is collaborative, and she often helps her clients measure their own progress with open, engaged discussion. She also encourages the use of mindfulness for clients to manage overwhelm and negative emotions.
Dr. Samler received both her master’s degree and her doctorate in clinical psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, where she deepened her understanding and practice of a relational psychodynamic approach. Her office is located close to Millennium Park, where she looks forward to meeting you.
