I am now seeing patients in person.
Dr. Douglas Sadownick is a Licensed Professional Psychologist in Los Angeles, CA. He also serves as a professor of clinical psychology at Antioch University, where he has spent the past 20 years training therapists to open their hearts and to engage with vitality and courage. Dr. Sadownick founded and directed the Antioch University LGBT Specialization and Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center, and a result, has access to a host of different methods and approaches, including psychodynamic, existential, feminist, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and somatic.
In sessions, Dr. Sadownick works collaboratively to engage clients in a conversational and respectful way. He strives to consistently check-in during each session to see how the overall treatment is going, and what can be improved. Together, he works with clients to come up with collaborative goals that are designed to help individuals feel safer emotionally and to meet their needs.
Dr. Sadownick is respected in the therapist community for advances he has made in training therapists to work with the people of color and queer communities.
