I absolutely love Dr. S. I've been seeing her for a couple of years now which is new for me because I've never stuck with a therapist this long. She is so, so intelligent and just absolutely beautiful inside and out. She really knows her stuff! The level of comfort I experience with her is amazing...she's been so good for my emotional health. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Samardzija is the best therapist I have ever had! (I've seen more than a dozen over the course of 12+ years) In a sea of therapists who just listen to you talk and ask you "How does that make you feel?," Dr. S is a breath of fresh air. Her testing procedures were able to correctly diagnose my issues where other therapists just guess and throw incorrect labels. Her therapy is bold yet loving - for the first time in my life I am getting past life-long abuse and neglect! An expert at her craft!

Seeing Dr. S has been life changing for my family & I. I deal with anxiety, PTSD & a dysfunctional family; she has helped me to understand all of these issues. She literally takes every problem I come to her with and makes it make sense. If she can do that for me, she can do that for anyone. I also have a 13 year old that loves talking to her, he trusts her & he feels like she truly cares. When someone outside a 13 year old's inner circle can make them feel that way it's impressive!

Dr. Samardzija is one of the best psychologists I know. She genuinely cares about her patients and goes beyond expectations. Sometimes so, that you might end up waiting a bit to get in for your appointment. But who cares about that when you get the best in town. I have grown and learned a lot about myself and I thank Dr. Samardzija for that. She ranks number one in my book! I even know patients that drive from Roswell and Clovis!

She does not appear to know what she is talking about. Did not listen, interrupted to contradict before hearing the statement or question, was unprepared, misunderstood purpose of test, was flat out wrong about other things she said. Areas where she gave out mistaken information are easily verifiable and generally well-know not only by the psychological community but by informed lay people. Stay away.
