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 am currently working via phone and video sessions (FaceTime or Zoom) to address people’s need for contact, support and direction. I specialize in working with diverse populations—also the Hollywood industry--to help address loneliness, concerns about finances, relationship distress and worries about survival. I feel it is important to use this challenging time to make meaning out of this societal change, to find out what’s being asked from each of us to grow. I am open to your call and to see how I might help.

My way of working is to help around COVID-19 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 20 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, CBT and somatic. 

My way of working is to engage you in a conversational and respectful way. I will always check-in with you during each session to see how we are doing and what can be improved. Together we come up with collaborative goals to help you feel safer emotionally and to meet your needs.  

I will also offer a discount to people working in the medical fields and an open to talking about fees knowing that times are tough.
