 Do you long for transformational change, both in yourself and your clients, but feel a little stuck?

Are you enthusiastic about exploring your internal world, and wish you had a clearer map?


Are you ready to experience a Holy Shift in your life, and learn to facilitate those shifts in others?

If so, The Coping Styles may be the missing link  you’ve been searching for.    


Love from current 12-Week Intensive participants

 Victoria Frenner, MFT

“After embarking on this journey, I was struck with a fierce sense of clarity. The universality of these Coping Styles quickly became evident, and I have since applied Source Code as the foundation from which to heal my clients. Moreover, it has become an integral part of my personal development. It feels as though I have woken up to the beauty of my life and I cannot look away from its brilliance.”

 Victoria Frenner, MFT


Participants in this 12-week intimate live experiential workshop will leave with:


A clear understanding of the stages of childhood psychological development, and what a child needs at each stage to support their wholeness

• An in-depth understanding of each of the 12 Coping Styles and how they show up in our adult lives

• New insight into the holographic nature of reality and psyche

• A general understanding of the principles and practice of Source Code Psychology

• A greater awareness of your own personal Coping Styles

• Tools to work through your own process of emergence from the Coping Styles

• Powerful techniques to help support others in their emergence

If we were not supported during any phase of childhood psychological development, we had to adapt by adopting a Coping Style.



We all have at least one, if not several of the Styles.


Our Coping Styles are unconscious defense mechanisms that have become our personality traits.


We’ve been trapped inside these invisible prisons for too long, and now is our time to emerge.

About Dr. Sam

Dr. Sam Rader is a depth psychologist, truth seeker and student of life. She is joyfully obsessed with why we are the way we are and what we can do about it. 


After seventeen years of clinical practice, Dr. Sam has created a new approach to therapy called Source Code Psychology. She believes that in our first five years of life, our early experience writes a source code in our unconscious which then determines the rest of the way our story unfolds. She helps people rewrite their code, for a healthier and more beautiful life.


She is the clinical director and owner of the Source Code Psychotherapy Center in Los Angeles, where she teaches both licensed and unlicensed therapists to work in this new, groundbreaking style of therapy.


Practicing Source Code therapy involves identifying and healing the glitches in our code, which Dr. Sam calls our Coping Styles—the outdated psychological defense mechanisms in the way of our wholeness.

Dr. Sam is currently authoring a book set to debut in 2022 with Harper Wave Publishers about the 12 Coping Styles we adopt during childhood, which helped us then and hurt us now, and how we can heal.


Dr. Sam’s process of discovering the Styles required a decade of rigor, both in her professional role and in her deep inner work of personal transformation.


Her hope is to bring positive change in the ways we relate with ourselves and others, and in how we parent our children. Sam believes that with enough support, good boundaries and real love, we are all capable of becoming Who We Really Are.

Dr. Sam and Ariel talk about the 12-Week Coping Styles Intensive:


“Learning about the Coping Styles has felt like being embraced by a warm hug after a long journey home. I know it is truth because it resonates deep in my bones.  I’ve felt able to understand, integrate, and utilize it for myself and my clients and it’s been profoundly helpful in my healing work. Dr. Sam is a gift to the world. She’s channeled this knowledge right from Source and I’m grateful to learn from her.”


— Stevie Wright, Life Coach & Breathwork Facilitator

“I had been looking my entire life for answers to questions about who I am and why I am the way I am, and despite countless efforts for decades, I never found those answers until now. My seeking drew me to Sam, and she has completely transformed my life. Through coming to understand my Coping Styles, I have noticed incredible shifts in my life and the way I show up in the world. It turns out there’s an entire world of beauty, magic, and ease that I had been missing. After doing this work on myself, I have also been able to transform the way I work with my clients. Source Code creates a map which allows me to pinpoint exactly where we are and what we are talking about, which enriches and enhances the therapeutic work. I have seen my clients shift in incredible and rapid ways over and over, which proves to me again that this work is the key. Source Code is the magical truth that opens doors for countless people to step into a loving, beautiful world without fear and the shackles of past wounds. It is courageous and brave work, yet it offers the most beautiful gift – to become who you truly are.”


— Marielle Skouras, MFT


“I have been in some form of therapy for most of my life starting from teenage years until now. I have read self-help books, been involved in 12-step programs, done the Artist’s Way, and attended healing and therapeutic weekend retreats and conventions. While I love all of these things, find immense value in them, and will continue to implement them in my life, nothing shook me so deeply as when I started incorporating Source Code into my being. Sam has helped me understand my core wounds, where they began, and how they get activated into reenactment. Bringing my subconscious to my conscious has given me the power of choice in which pathway I decide to use on a daily basis. I have been freed of many limiting beliefs that kept me stuck and transformed into a fluid, expansive, and centered human being. Through my own personal healing of these deep wounds, I get to now share the wealth with my clients. I get to take them on journeys through their psyches where we recondition their learned behaviors into a more holistically empowered sense of being. I get to watch them heal from the inside out, much like I did in my personal journey through Sam and Source Code.” 


— Lauren Burt, MFT

“Dr. Sam has created such an elegant and user-friendly tool that has helped me to connect with and understand more completely the ways in which early childhood reflections have the power to distort and inhibit our capacity to love and move freely in the world. I have used the Source Code model as a courageous tool for finding and healing both my own and my clients' unique shadows. I found this material to be a remarkably hopeful map to liberation and a fuller embodiment. Thank you.” 


— Taylor Ross, Founder of The Practice of Parenting


"Learning Source Code has sent me on a magic carpet ride to understanding myself down to my core for the first time in my life. I feel unchained and liberated from so many upper limiting beliefs that had me stuck on a plateau and I have so much more confidence and joy in my life. I have taken many wellness and healing classes and workshops, but nothing compares to the fascinating and delicious work I did with Source Code. It’s truly “the” code to unlocking your power and happiness, healing the inner child. I had a way of keeping myself small for the last twenty years that I really believed that is who I was. Now, I feel free to shine as bright as I want to without fear and a scathing self-critic inside shutting me down. I have learned to turn my open heart towards my pain and grief using love and the practices Dr. Sam teaches to transmute and heal it. I can sleep better at night and have made steps towards financial independence that I never had the courage to do in the past. Some of my most trying and difficult relationships with my family have been completely turned around by Dr. Sam’s work. I cry as I write this because I feel like I was in a dark room with no way out, maybe I would escape for a little while, but I was always brought back there. Dr. Sam’s work gave me the keys to unlock myself from that darkness for good, there’s no going back now! I feel so honored by the universe to be a part of this burgeoning lightning bolt of psychological revolution”
