Through her recent role as a Resilience ambassador, Diana is excited to be able to assist families and individuals experiencing hardships during the pandemic.

Motivation Thursdays with Mrs. Samuels

Amanda Samuels is a Licensed Therapist practicing in Las Vegas. She is proud to be married to someone working on the frontlines during this pandemic. She has made it her goal to let all of the frontline, behind the scenes, and all of those in between workers and community members know how much they are appreciated and that their mental health matters.

Each week she provides a message in hopes to validate, educate, or encourage in regards to what you might be experiencing as you navigate the pandemic. She is honored to be sharing with you!
