Very nice counsellor. Active listener
Samuel Staggs is professional, calm. and reassuring. I did not have much faith in this process but I am a believer. I am far from a simple case and have multiple issues. He keeps me on track and gives me hope for the future. Being a APRN made me skeptical, I am a believer. I am 61 and if I could be a cheer leader for Samual I would. Such a amazing young man
Sam is understating and gives plenty of tools and techniques to help manage every day life.
Amazing support, friendly, professional and responds quickly- fantastic
Samuel is an excellent professional and human being. I was immediately impressed by how he understood what I was saying by reading between the lines. He is continuously supportive but not pushy — he reminds me that everything is in my pace. He is sympathetic and non-judgmental, which makes it easy to speak to him about anything. I often felt bad for things I did but he is comforting and reassuring, reminding me that it doesn’t mean I’m a bad person.
He is responsive and flexible because he responds to voice notes well, to long and short texts, and to video calls/pictures.
I have no doubt that if I return to teen counseling, I will look for him again. I highly recommend Samuel.
Samuel Staggs really helped my daughter get through a difficult time. I am so happy that I reached out to him, it was more than worth it!
He understood my concerns well and connected with my son right away , very smoothly n professionally.
My son trusts him n looks forward to share his feelings with him which is very positive given that he was very reluctant to talk to his parents even.
I was a bit worried when I got Samuel as a counselor. I have trauma with males and we seemed complete opposites. I can’t describe how wrong I was to worry. He is the most unbiased, down to earth individual. If you want someone to get on your level, but maintain professional methods, Samuel is a perfect fit. He responds fast and is punctual when it comes to your care.
Samuel has been amazing. He responds quickly and thoroughly. He gives me external resources (i.e. YouTube videos) to explore which have helped tremendously. I am still new to therapy in general but I've already benefited a lot.
