Samantha Baira, MC Student

Currently completing a master’s degree in counselling at City University of Seattle’s Edmonton Campus.

Samantha is in her final year of her master’s degree and is completing her internship with Revelation Psychology. Prior to her master’s, Samantha completed her Bachelors of Science in Psychology degree at Grant MacEwan University where she developed a love for the field of psychology. She had briefly worked as a behavioral therapist assistant with the Edmonton Catholic School Board where she advocated and supported students.  

Samantha believes in a client-centered approach that focuses on building strong relationships with clients while also incorporating client values and beliefs to help create change. City University encourages students to explore different modalities and Samantha is welcoming of all perspectives and is excited to meet and work with a variety of different clients.

In her spare time, Samantha plays on her family’s volleyball team all year round and can be found snowboarding in the mountains during the winter months.

Working with a student is a great low cost option. She has all of the education and training and is fully supported by other members of Revelation Counselling. All clients that see Samantha will be reviewed by either David Buhr or Cheryl Waite. She will also be able to consult with the rest of the team at Revelation Counselling.

Fees for her service are $50/session, but these may also be reduced based on client need.

Samantha will also offer free intake sessions for some clients. This will allow us to gain a broader view of the client’s situation so that formal therapy can progress quicker.
