Hi there, I’m Sam! I am a positive psychology practitioner and digital media expert based in Portland, OR.

I use my combined expertise in mental health and digital media to produce engaging, uplifting content for platforms like Healthline, Greatist, Teen Vogue, Huffington Post, Medium, Upworthy, and more.

I’m currently a Content Writer for inflow, a science-based app that helps users manage their ADHD through psychoeducation, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness.

I run a successful blog, Let’s Queer Things Up!, discussing the intersections of mental health and the LGBTQ+ community. I previously served as the Lead Editor of Mental Health for Healthline and the Social Media Manager for Psych Central.

As a positive psychology practitioner, I also offer peer support coaching to those living with mental health challenges, particularly those with ADHD and executive dysfunction.
