Kirsten M. Devlin, M.A.

EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

Mid 40's working woman, happily married for over two decades (crikey!!), and mother of two teenagers. I have firsthand knowledge about successfully coping with the challenges of marriage and parenthood. I understand the struggles of illness, extended family relationships, and the stress of a busy schedule. Relationships are at the core of who I am, but I also place an extremely high priority on balance, mindfulness and self care.

Education & Experience

I have over 20 years experience as psychotherapist. Bachelor's and a Master's degrees in Applied Behavioral Science received from Bastyr University. Much of my undergraduate psychology work was completed at the University of Oregon, where I was on the dean’s list. After spending 3 years in community mental health counseling children, parents and families I became licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a qualified Child Mental Health Specialist. I also completed a postgraduate externship to further specialize my work with adults and couples. Passionate about learning and motivated to provide the best possible care for my clients, I continually educate myself in up to date, evidence based treatment modalities.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

In addition to being a Washington State licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (#LF00001900) I am also a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the Washington Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. I am certified in EMDR and a clinical member of EMDRIA.
