We are pleased to introduce our September 2022 National Register Member Spotlight, Samuel Salamon, PsyD.
This past spring, Dr. Salamon was a guest on The Clinical Consult to discuss the business side of psychotherapy: the journey into private practice and considerations for establishing a private practice of your own. This podcast episode also acted as a foundational introduction to the National Register’s series Professional Practice Builder: Knowledge & Skills to Thrive in Private Practice. Dr. Salamon’s personal story on starting a practice provides key considerations for anyone who is looking to do the same.
Dr. Salamon (he/him) is a licensed psychologist in Oregon, Maryland, and Washington, DC and operates a private practice in Portland, Oregon. He holds a BA in psychology and philosophy from Brooklyn College and a PsyD from The George Washington University.
Dr. Salamon is also a clinical supervisor at The George Washington University PsyD Program and member of APA Divisions 39 (Psychoanalysis), 32 (Humanistic Psychology), and 29 (Advancement of Psychotherapy). He has broad interests in psychoanalysis, existentialism, and moral philosophy. His areas of recent research include responsibility, meaning in life, and the interplay between Jewish thought, identity, and psychoanalysis.
