About

 Hello, 

 Like you I too am a mental health professional and therefore have a better understanding of your website needs. 

 I understand the mental health terminology, clients who are dysthymic, countertransference, the perils of triangulation 
 and enmeshment, double-bind communications, cognitive dissonance, executive functioning impairment, the  unyielding burden of HMO paperwork, working with BPD and crisis issues - other website developers simply don't. 
I have been in the MH field since 1983 and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington and a National Certified Counselor.  I currently work in a large medical center as well as in private practice.  I received my MA in Counseling Psychology from City University in 2003, graduating first in my class.  I provided therapy services at the Community Psychiatric Clinic (CPC) in Seattle, volunteered at the King County Crisis Clinic and have been a co-facilitator at a local Alzheimer's Disease Caregivers support group.  

  I was a member of the ACA, Washington Mental Health Counselors Association (WMHCA) and several other 
  professional organizations.  I am a Certified Specialist in Psychometry (CSP), and subject matter expert (SME) and
  past president of the 
Board of Certified  Psychometrists (BCP).  I am a charter member of  the National Association of
  Psychometrists
(NAP)
, former NAP Board Member, and former NAP and current BCP website administrator.  I have
  been developing
websites since the mid-1990's and turned it into a small business for discreet customers in 2004.


  Don't hesitate to contact me and ask questions before signing up - I believe in transparency.  

  Thank you!

  Tom Erickson, MA, CSP, NCC, LMHC


A Day at the office ... I wish!  :)
