Dr. Sam Rumak

Registered Psychologist

I have a range of experience in both the assessment and treatment of mood, anxiety, obsessive compulsive, and schizophrenia-spectrum disorders. I have also worked with individuals struggling with chronic and complex pain conditions.

I utilize evidenced based therapies primarily within a CBT framework; however, I do integrate aspects of Mindfulness and DBT emotional regulation where appropriate. That being said, my approach to therapy is fundamentally client-centered and I have a genuine curiosity and compassion towards those under my care – a therapeutic style that has been enriched by my experience working with individuals in dynamic and interpersonal therapy contexts.

In addition to Boreal Wellness Centres, I also work with the Early Psychosis Intervention program based in Surrey.

I recently completed a PhD in Clinical Psychology at UBC and a CPA accredited pre-doctoral residency at CAMH in Toronto. I am registered with the College of Psychologists of BC.
