Empowering Women

The time has come to see mental illness as more than just a buzz word or stereotype. Mental illnesses include many different conditions that vary in degree of severity, ranging from mild to moderate, to severe. Mental illness does not discriminate against sex, race, religion, or socioeconomic status.

My desire is to help break the stigma of silence surrounding mental health. My mission is to empower those dealing with diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness, their loved ones, and communities to seek resources necessary for optimal mental health. 

Hi There! Welcome to Samantha Speaks

My name is Samantha LaRocque. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker currently working in private practice. I work with children, adolescents, women, and families dealing with different degrees of mental health. As a Speaker, my desire is to shed light and offer support in settings where mental health may otherwise be overlooked.

How Samantha Helps

Samantha has been one of my most dependable and loyal lifelong friends since we were 16. Her authentic and transparent character pours out into her professional life. Samantha has taught me how to live out James 1:19, “For everyone should be quick to listen and slow to speak and slow to become angry.” I believe God has anointed her to give His message of love, compassion, and healing especially in her field of expertise. Samantha’s genuine concern to help others inspires me to reach out and share my story through my pain.

"It's okay to not be okay"

We are not promised a life without trials. Each and every person we encounter is visibly or invisibly battling in some area of life. As John 1:5 states, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it”, my heart is to be a light in someone’s darkest moments.
