Meet Samantha…

Samantha “Sam” Allen, Practicum Student

Site Supervisor: Dr. Jessica Barboza, PhD, LMFT-S

Sam completed her Master of Arts degree in Theology from the Augustine Institute in the spring of 2020. She is now a graduate student at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas in the Counseling – Marriage, Couples and Family program and is supervised by Dr. Jessica Barboza, PhD, LMFT-S. She has had the honor of working with students, couples, and families through her service as a public-school teacher and Director of Religious Education. It was her experience working in these fields, along with being received through the art of counseling that she now seeks to walk with her clients and help them discover the beauty of who God created them to be!

Sam is available to work with individuals, couples, and families. Collaborating with her clients and their unique values and lifestyle, she seeks to help her clients live a life that is full, free, and beautiful by integrating psychotherapy with spirituality.

Along with being a graduate student, Sam is married to her husband of nine years, and is a mother of three daughters, who all continuously help her become the person God created her to be through the sanctity of daily life and self-discovery in Christ.
