I am a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia. I have 4 years of experience working with children and teens with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, life changes, stress, self esteem, intellectual disability, Autism, family issues, parenting issues, and ADHD. I am passionate about helping children, teens, and their families achieve their highest quality of life.
I strive to develop a relationship of trust with my clients so they feel accepted in who they are, while also feeling challenged to grow in ways that bring them closer to their goals. I believe in treating everyone with respect and making the therapy environment warm, welcoming, and comfortable. I use a strength based approach that combines cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. I will tailor our sessions specifically to your child and their goals.
It takes courage to seek help for your child and family. I am here to support and empower your child to address concerns and work towards achieving their goals.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Samantha Leto. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
She is so amazing, she helps me with problems and she is super kind
What a beautiful person. Such great insight, patience, kindness and respect. Love her!
It’s been great working with Samantha. She’s a deeply kind and patient listener who asks incisive questions that help me better understand my own thoughts and feelings. She gives timely and actionable tools to work through my challenges between our video sessions, and always checks in between sessions, too. I’m grateful for her presence and skill!
