Geoffrey Simkins, MSW, LSWAICCounselor / Clinical Social Worker
Born & raised in Washington State, in private practice since 2015.
My primary areas of focus include: behavior change, addiction, PTSD/trauma, communication, depression, anxiety.
My therapeutic approach is based on a unique melding of therapy modalities, focuses on a person’s strengths – and takes place in a welcoming, supportive, non-judgmental environment. These modalities include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, strengths-based modeling, and mindfulness techniques.
I strive to be transparent, direct, empathetic, helpful, and ultimately give as much value as I can to my clients. I collaboratively tailor each treatment plan with each client, and we work together to help them achieve these goals.
I think people who seek therapy are brave and I'm extremely honored when asked to assist someone trying to improve the quality of their life's adventures.
Clinical Social Work
As a graduate of the University of Washington, School of Social Work, Master of Social Work program (MSW) and having completed Washington State requirements & holding a license (LSWAIC), enables me to provide clinical social work services, which are; counseling, evaluation, intervention, and case management services to those who are suffering mental, social, familial and/or medical issues. In addition to taking their client’s psychological and emotional states into account, part of what makes social work unique is that clincal social workers also examine the social and environmental factors impacting the client’s life.
