Therapy changed my life. In fact, it led me to become a therapist. Professionally, I had reached a level of success that kept me financially comfortable, but I was depressed and anxious because I lacked purpose. I was lost in addictions and reckless behaviors which further galvanized my sadness and kept me feeling lost in how to make meaningful change. My commitment to therapy helped me become the man I am today. Therapy is a safe place for you to be open with your thoughts and feelings, free of judgment. Shame is a common issue we all face. Sharing your shame helps to dispel it and leads you to substantial emotional growth. I find the most valuable impact therapy can have on you is a deeper understanding of yourself and who you want to show up as in the world. Through consistent, gentle, and thoughtful investigation of oneself, there can be considerable growth. The deeper we are able to go together, the more attuned you will become with yourself and others. I am a highly engaged therapist who will challenge you in session to become more attuned to yourself. I deeply believe in empowerment and helping clients cultivate a solid sense of self and self-worth. My practice encompasses a wide range of people. My main areas of focus include the queer community, entertainment industry professionals, performers, artists, and couples of all types (gay, straight, polyamorous, etc). Lastly, I work with a wide range of people with different types of presenting problems, races, and sexual and gender identities. I tailor my approach to each client's needs.

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Emotionally Focused (EFT)
  • Interpersonal
  • Person-Centered
  • Psychodynamic
  • Relational Psychotherapy
Approach Description: I believe the therapeutic environment requires a feeling of safety that allows the client to be fully open with their thoughts and emotions, free of judgment. A lot of the struggles we deal with internally are attached to shame. Allowing that shame to be shared not only helps to dispel it but also opens the door for substantial emotional growth. I am committed to building a relationship with you that gives you the security to feel safe and contained while evolving into the person you want to be. I fundamentally believe that you, the client, have all the answers to your problems. I will help you identify, process through, and grow out of the roadblocks you may have imposed on yourself.

Samer Fawaz Practice Description
I believe everyone deserves to have a chance at better understanding themselves in a world that can be deeply judgmental, racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist etc. The impositions that society places on us can produce self-loathing, low self-confidence and a general feeling of unworthiness. This, in turn, forces us to put pressure on ourselves to be a version of ourselves that is inauthentic which keeps us in the cycle of self-hate. I am very passionate about breaking this cycle. I find great value and reward in helping people connect with their truest selves so they can flourish and find self-compassion within themselves.
