​​Experience & Education

Antoinette Evans, MA LMFT CMHP
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 r
eentering the states system. 

I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) ,  International Academy of  Collaborative Professionals (IACP) and the Association of  Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) . Currently, I am working as a Child Specialist for Collaborative Divorce teams. Please see my Child Specialist page for more information.  I am also an approved clinical supervisor in  Washington.
