Licensed Clinical Social Worker Amara Schrager has joined Samaritan Mental Health – Circle Blvd. She specializes in child and adolescent therapy, play therapy and trauma-focused therapy.
She earned a bachelor’s degree at University of California, Santa Cruz and master’s degrees in public health and social work at University of California, Los Angeles.
Schrager wanted to become a therapist so she could serve the community and support individual change.
“I am guided by kindness, integrity and social justice,” she said.
Schrager is new to Oregon, and she chose Samaritan because she wanted to work for a nonprofit organization.
“Samaritan’s values align with mine,” she said.
