Terence Sampson: A Multidimensional Therapist with a Unique Edge

Terence Sampson Jr.

Introducing Terence Sampson

My name is Terence Sampson, and I am a licensed psychotherapist. From a young age, I was recognized for my precocious nature and high emotional intelligence.

Engaging in conversations with adults fascinated me, especially seeing how my words could positively impact them.

What Sets Me Apart

I want people to understand that I am a multifaceted individual. It’s important to embrace all sides of ourselves for a healthy life. While I am a therapist, tomorrow I might want to explore being a pornstar, and the day after, a politician.

Life is about change and avoiding the monotony of repetition. People often fear taking bold steps, but embracing these shifts is part of living truthfully.

What distinguishes me from others in my field is my willingness to showcase my humanity. I’m not afraid to reveal my insecurities, vulnerabilities, and bold personality, particularly in terms of my sexuality.

Discovering My Calling

During my graduate studies, I interned at Morehouse College, a historically black all-male institution. There, I worked with young men facing various mental health challenges, from depression to schizophrenia to borderline personality disorders.

Witnessing the positive impact of my treatment on these students affirmed that this is what I was meant to do.

Overcoming Challenges

The biggest challenge I’ve faced was maintaining my role as an emotionally intelligent therapist while grappling with my own emotional struggles.

This experience taught me the importance of thinking beyond personal feelings. Some days, you may not feel like showing up for your family, kids, or patients, but it’s crucial to do so and give your best effort.

Influential Figures

If I could meet three people who could elevate my career, they would be:

  1. Sista Soldier: Her work has greatly inspired my writing.
  2. Chris Brown: His influence on music and culture profoundly affects my work as both a clinician and writer.
  3. Johnny Cochran (though no longer with us): His theatrical approach to law was captivating. As a therapist with a provocative and entertaining image, I draw parallels to his unique style.
