Samuel Donath is a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who believes life is complex, and that even the most intelligent people need help at times.
Samuel’s goal is to help clients find peace, increased awareness, deeper understanding, and build the skills they need to be successful in the future outside of therapy. He focuses on creating a completely safe, ethical, and non-judgmental space where clients can explore the issues they are struggling with and begin to bring about positive change in their lives. Beside working with clients, Samuel has an extensive background in academic teaching, psychological research, and academic writing.
He works primarily with couples and individuals who are seeking help with issues, such as, relationship stresses, sexual problems/dysfunctions, communication difficulties, problematic behaviors, and anxiety disorders. One of his many strengths is that absolutely no topic is taboo or ever off limits in session. His ability to hold space for what others feel are uncomfortable topics helps his clients open up and feel supported.
While he enjoys working with clients from all cultural and social backgrounds, Samuel also has a strong passion for working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community. He is also in the process of completing his Sex Therapist Certification through AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists).
Samuel believes, “Thinking deeply about issues that are bothering you in life is the first step to bringing about the change you want. You should feel proud of yourself for coming to this step.”
