Sam Schwartz Landrum is a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW) in the state of Washington. He received his Masters of Social Work at the University of Washington in 2000 and has focused his work since then on serving Veterans and their families. His individual and couples treatment approach is based on developing a therapeutic alliance that is rooted in trust and mutual respect. This is the foundation from which the meaningful exploration of past or current events and experiences, including the impact of military experience, can be undertaken. The development of an individualized treatment plan with specific treatment goals further supports building and maintaining meaningful change in one’s life. Sam has been trained in and has experience providing Prolonged Exposure and Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills for emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness. He uses a Mindfulness approach as well as Cognitive Behavior Therapy skills for mood, anxiety and other problems in living.
