MICHELLE SAMAYOA

Executive Assistant

Michelle has over eight years of experience working with young children and their families. She has worked as a Preschool Teacher, Behavioral Therapist, Child Development Specialist, Children’s Advocate for Forensic Interviews, and as a Center-Based Early Interventionist. Having experiences with systems that provide children with services, she understands how critical the administrative work is for a patient’s access to those services. Michelle manages scheduling new client appointments, processes and manages patient records, and facilitates daily operations for the clinic to ensure that our therapists can focus on providing quality care for their clients. 


Michelle received her bachelor’s degree in Sociology with minors in Education and Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her associate’s degree in Child Development from Los Angeles Pierce College. Her goal is to receive her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
