Welcome to Your Journey Into Affirmative Therapy

Douglas Sadownick

During the current public health crisis, I can offer you all my emotional resources to help you feel safe and grounded. I can connect with you via Zoom or I can see you at my office near Olympic and Highland where precautions for safety are taken.

I specialize in working with diverse populations to help address loneliness, trauma, sexuality, racial inequity, concerns about finances, creativity, and relationship distress. 

I also have experience in working with people who work in the Hollywood Industry.

My way of working is to help you feel safe and cared for. We can address your fears, worried and anxieties. Solutions can be discovered through dialogue. As we work to solve some pressing concerns, we can also address the search for greater meaning and deeper purpose that comes from facing a crisis. I will talk with you as a companion in your journey. I work with all people and specialize in working with LGBTQ clients, women and people of color and men struggling with today's health crisis and other pressures. 

As a professor of clinical psychology at Antioch University, I have spent the last 25 years training therapists to open their hearts and also to engage with vitality and courage. There I founded and directed the Antioch University LGBT Specialization and Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center. As a result, I have access to a host of different methods and approaches, including psychodynamic, existentialist, feminist, cognitive-behavioral and somatic-based strategies. 

The best kind of therapy should treat the client as an equal partner in healing and transformation and for conversation to proceed in a caring and respectful way. Together we will arrive at collaborative goals to help you live to your fullest potential.
