Michael Sakuma, Ph.D.

I have taught psychology for over 16  years at both the undergraduate  and graduate levels including many students who went on to become clinical psychologists themselves.

I have studied at the University of Washington outpatient psychiatry unit, the UW pain clinic and the neuropsychological assessment unit.  In addition, I spent a post-doctoral year at Oxford University studying brain change associated with persistent mental illness.

My approach can be described as “integrative” – informed from many different scientifically supported therapies, customized to your particular situation. I look forward to  being your partner in trying to help you get where you want to be in life.

“What are you actively doing now to create the life you want?”

I am a licensed social worker in both New York and Washington States and have worked for over 15 years in both community counseling centers and private practice.

As a therapeutic coach, I endeavor to help you recognize thoughts, behaviors and patterns that might be getting in the way of living your most fulfilling life.  My approach is gentle, supportive and action-oriented.   I specialize in working with individuals who wish to learn how to overcome fear-based thinking and self-doubt, and who wish accountability support to be able to move towards desired goals. Part of this is helping people combine the learning of new skills with their innate strengths.  Though I prefer our time together to be in-person, if appropriate, I offer sessions by phone for flexibility.
