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 the Content & Community Lead 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.
