Therapists & Coaches
Somiya (Sam) Murtadi MS, ALC, ADC
Hello, my name is Sam. I have been in recovery from addiction since 2011, giving me a unique perspective on the dynamics of therapy, as well as on addiction and recovery. I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Troy University. I am also certified as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor through The Alabama Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association (ADC-941). Additionally, I am an Associate Licensed Counselor in the State of Alabama (License Number: C3426A) working under Terry Bradley MS, LPC.
My therapeutic background is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and I also pull from various other modalities such as Mindfulness, Narrative, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. My other areas of interest include Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered Therapy, and Art and Music therapy, were I can use my own creativity as a model to encourage my clients to express themselves and their feelings in a variety of ways. I work with adults, teens, and children. I specialize in substance abuse, trauma, teen issues, men's issues, and LGBTQ+.
In my free time I especially enjoy traveling, having been to various countries in Northern America, the Caribbean, and Europe. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and my three dogs and cat.
I'm now accepting Alabama Medicaid for 12-21 y/o.
