Texas Tech University

Samuel Farley, Ph.D.

Graduate Training: Oklahoma State University, 2018

Internship: Indiana University, 2017-2018 

Theoretical Orientation: Integrative Approach (Interpersonal, Relational-Cultural, and Cognitive Behavioral)

Professional Interests: Eating Disorders, Trauma, Men and Masculinity, LGBTQIA+

Approach to Therapy: I incorporate numerous theoretical orientations into my clinical practice, but place a large emphasis on building a good therapeutic alliance with clients. This allows for a strong foundation to assist any work clients wish to begin. During the first two meetings, I collaborate with clients on identifying the issues and goals they have and deciding the best route to beginning to work on these concerns. I am trained as a generalist and able to work with clients who are experiencing a wide array of concerns.

Approach to Supervision: My approach to supervision aims to provide a developmentally safe and supportive atmosphere for supervisees to discuss potential issues or concerns during their training experience. I seek to help supervisees identify relevant training goals and help provide guidance on working towards those goals. Additionally, I seek to provide feedback and challenges to help facilitate supervisee's growth in their approach to working with clients and developing their professional identity.
