Dr. Samantha Dowdall

Psychologist , PhD

(408) 676-9957
As a solution-focused therapist working with adults and couples, my goal is to help you change patterns and beliefs that have held you back, so that you can lead a life that is worth celebrating. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a difficult situation, are struggling with a chronic condition, or you're just ready to explore a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
My specialties include social anxiety, trauma, anxiety/depression, bipolar disorders, and adult AD/HD and learning disorders. I perform neuropsycholgical testing and evaluations, and can collaborate with your other health care professionals where appropriate. An area I particularly enjoy is working with those who are exploring academic and career possibilities.
Those of us who live and work here in Silicon Valley are keenly aware of how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy balance of self, career, and family. I would welcome the opportunity to help you achieve that balance.
