Sam Douglas is a licensed clinical social worker specializing in anxiety, trauma, depression, and the common desire for meaning and purpose. Trained in relational psychoanalysis and somatic experiencing, Sam’s work with patients incorporates mindfulness and a careful attention to the therapeutic relationship. Though each treatment is different, his goal is to encourage self-compassion and engage each patient's capacity for insight and healing.
Sam has deep experience working with trauma survivors, using patients’ sense of their bodies in the present moment to build resilience, ease longstanding fears, and reconnect to themselves and loved ones.
Sam sees adults of all ages in his practice. He has a special interest in working with men on topics of identity, masculinity and sexuality; and on work-life balance. At the heart of his practice is a commitment to help clients identify, understand, and let go of negative patterns, and to develop a sense of aliveness and empowerment.
