Types of Therapy Offered

[ Open All | Close All ]

1] Individuals
I work with individual adult clients in both short-term (3 - 12months) and long-term therapy (more than 1 year). As a relational therapist, I believe the quality work happens when long term therapeutic relationship is established. However with life circumstances and the fast pace culture we live in, sometimes short-term work is necessary. My goal in short-term work is to offer short-term goals and brief relational work in the interim. Sessions are typically 50-minutes and ideally on a weekly basis. .

2] Parenting/Children & Adolescents
I am currently taking kids/adolescent clients as well as providing parenting support for caregivers. I received my credential as a Child Mental Health Specialist (CMHS) in Seattle working in Child & Family Services with Sound Mental Health and ACRS. I am trained as a PCIT (Parent Child Interaction Therapy) therapist and also adhere to the Nurtured Heart Approach. Read more...


About Sam:  I am a husband and father of two.  I developed my therapeutic mind at The Seattle School, where I attained my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology as well as a Master of Divinity degree.  I chose bamboo as my central imagery that guides how I see the therapeutic process.  Bamboo is a paradoxical plant that is able to be strong and resilient, firm enough to be used to build houses, while also flexible and soft enough to eat.  It can bend with the wind but not break.  A good therapist needs to combine two seemingly polar forces of being strong and firm but malleable and offer tender care for the client.  That is what I hope to embody as a therapist.
