My Approach

Life is hard. 

As humans, our most significant resource is our relationships.

Strong and healthy relationships make the hard times bearable.

My name is Sam Grimaldo, I believe the quality of our lives is inextricably connected to the quality of our relationships. I specialize in helping couples and individuals recover from trauma, addiction, and infidelity – the things that can strain a relationship’s foundation or cause it to crumble altogether.

Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, and it can be hard to navigate difficult situations alone.

My mission is to provide a supportive environment where people can express their struggles honestly and courageously – while utilizing evidence-based interventions and strategic solutions – so they can move forward with confidence and create the relationships they desire.

I strive to be your partner as you explore what stands between you and meaningful connections to live a rich life. Together we will uncover roadblocks on your journey towards healing, resilience, growth & transformation! 

So, whether you’re trying to move on from trauma — and the addictions it can cause — or you’re trying to get out of a rut with your spouse, I’m here to help.  

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I take an evidence-based approach to treating both individuals and couples in San Antonio.

I work with adults from all backgrounds to treat: 

  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Marriage and Couples Issues
  • Addiction and Substance Abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mens Issues 
  • Life transitions

I also enjoy helping individuals through big life events. I even help entrepreneurs who are taking the courageous first steps to creating their own businesses. 

Whether you need individual counseling to overcome trauma or you need an evidence-based approach to healing your marriage,

Grimaldo Counseling is your partner on your journey to healing.

A Little More About Sam

I believe that being a counselor is a calling. I love helping people, and I’m passionate about the work that I do.

Outside of work, I do my best to build an intentional life not only for myself and my family, but also to bring these lived experiences to the table for my clients.

My loving wife, Jessica, and I are blessed to be raising three children. Outside of the office, I love spending time outside. You can find me hiking, biking, and camping in the beautiful areas surrounding San Antonio. I also love traveling outside of the Alamo City and trying new experiences.
