Candace Sam

Candace Sam, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), graduated with an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University and then completed a Master of Social Work degree from University of Southern California (Fight On!). She has been a licensed therapist since 2015 and loves working with kids and teens. During her time as a therapist she’s worked in the outpatient setting working with kids and teenagers and prior to that worked in a hospital setting. Candace worked in all the Bryan Health Mental Health Units working mostly with crisis situations including suicidal thoughts and behaviors, depression, anxiety and major mental illness. She is currently working towards a specialization in Play Therapy to help kids explore and overcome life's challenges. She has training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy, but believes in an eclectic approach because not everyone is made the same. She works with the client to decide how best to approach therapy.
