Samantha Arroyo is a bilingual therapist in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Program. Prior to joining The Family Institute, Ms. Arroyo engaged in community based work on the West side of Chicago, in collaboration with Chicago Public Schools, working with adolescents, families and community members. Ms. Arroyo specializes in guiding clients in reclaiming their healing and building healthy coping mechanisms to combat anxiety, mood disorders and trauma. Ms. Arroyo’s work dives into how our past is connected to our present, and can influence not only how we see ourselves, but also how our futures are impacted.

In Ms. Arroyo’s practice, clients are able to tell their story in ways that feel most appropriate for them. She employs psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and narrative therapy to get to the root of the issue through exploring our whys and how it impacts our behaviors and sense of self. Ms. Arroyo’s clients are active participants in their own healing as they create plans of action and redefine themselves regardless of societal expectations. In her work, Ms. Arroyo utilizes a multicultural lens to deconstruct and destigmatize the therapeutic process. She welcomes all people, regardless of identity, in safe and transformative healing because she understands that everyone’s journey looks different. Ms. Arroyo believes the therapeutic process is a collaboration between the client and therapist and the power of one’s resilience is where healing begins.
