Sam Himelstein is a Licensed Psychologist in the the state of California. Most of his work has involved working with high-risk and marginalized youth in the juvenile justice system, foster care system, and those suffering from addiction issues. He has previously worked at the Chemical Dependency program at Kaiser Permanente with teens and their families, in a number of juvenile halls conducting psychotherapy, psychological evaluations, and researching the efficacy of mindfulness-based interventions with incarcerated and underserved adolescent populations.
He’s the author of multiple scholarly journal articles and three books, he travels the country speaking at conferences and conducting professional trainings, and he is the founder and president of the Center for Adolescent Studies. He is passionate about training professionals from multiple disciplines in creating authentic, healing relationships with adolescents that contribute to positive outcomes. Most of his speaking lies at the intersection of building authentic relationships, trauma-informed care, and teaching mindfulness to youth. He was a formerly incarcerated youth myself and was privileged to change his life from a path of drugs, violence, crime, and self-destruction to that of healing and transformation.
His mission is to help young people become aware of the power of self-awareness and transformation, and train professionals with similar interests.
