Professional statement

Dr. Samantha Schindelheim is a licensed clinical social worker on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Dr. Schindelheim provides her services through telehealth and/or in her client's homes with the goal of meeting every client wherever they are. In-home services allow for in-vivo parent coaching, behavioral observations, and an essential level of client comfort, convenience and power within the therapeutic relationship.

She is also a clinical consultant on two NIMH Grant through Johns Hopkins Medical Center, which focuses on suicide intervention research for Community Health Workers in Baltimore, Maryland and the Navajo Nation.

Message to clients

I know it can be really challenging to find the right therapist. I sincerely hope that with my help, we will be able to build a very strong and trusting therapeutic relationship that is also defined by clear growth, valuable change, and meaningful success. I care deeply about the work that we do together and I will ensure that each session is based on valuable evidence-based strategies, but also tailored directly to your needs and desires for your care. Prior to starting sessions together, I want to make sure that we are a good fit. I do this by spending time on the phone with you so that I can get to know your needs, wants, and dreams for successful treatment, for you to know more about me and my approach, and to answer any and all questions that you may have about the work we will do together. Mental wellness is a big investment and I care deeply about making sure that our work is worth it to you in every way.
