Antoinette Evans, MA LMFT CMHS MA Psychology, Children, Couples and Family
I attained my Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from Argosy University, Seattle. My Masters
of Arts degree in psychology was completed at Antioch University, Seattle. My course of study was
Children, Couples and Families. I continue to further my education in the areas of trauma, mood
disorders, working with children and diverse cultures.
I particularly enjoy working with children, tweens, teens and young adults. Children are faced with
multiple challenges that were not present in prior generations. My work with children has kept me
up to date regarding the challenges facing this generation. Some of these challenges have led to an increase in anxiety, depression, self-harm and low self-esteem. I work with children to build their self-esteem using the language that is specific to their culture and social lifestyle. Therapy for children may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psycho-education and Trauma Therapy.
I am a state certified Child Mental Health Professional. My experience with working with Washington States Children's Administration Department has allowed me to assist families to keep their children in their homes. Additionally, I have assisted clients with the reunification process once their children have been returned to help teach critical parenting skills necessary to keeping their children safe, and minimize the possibility of them reentering the states system.
Currently, I am involved with a couple of organizations that work to meet the needs of children affected by traumatic life changing events. Working with King County Multi-Disciplinary Team for Commercially Sexually Exploited Children alllows me to be a part of a team that is willing to work with others from multiple service agencies, including the juvenile and justice organizations to provide a network and system of support for children who are in "The Life."
