About Kaylin

KFurry

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and also hold a Master of Education degree from University of Puget Sound.  I have over 25 years of experience working in the mental health field with children, adolescents, adults, and families and have also counseled couples for the last three years. I approach my work with profound openness and deep compassion for all people. I have gained tremendous insight into the complexities of mental health and healing through the various settings I’ve worked in, such as private practice for the past eight years and as a school counselor for ten years.

My specific training and expertise includes:

  • parent/child/teen relationships
  • blended families
  • divorce
  • grief/loss
  • depression/anxiety
  • ADHD
  • suicide
  • trauma
  • physical and sexual abuse
  • working with diverse cultures within the scope of mental health
  • assisting families with educational advocacy for their children when mental health and/or behaviors pose difficulties at school
  • working with individuals with dual diagnosis

My own personal experiences have impacted me as well, which ultimately have lead me to this field of helping others.  I continue to grow as therapist each day through my work with others.  It is truly in my work with others that I continue to grow emotionally, spiritually and learn new skills to better assist my clients.

I am a life-long learner and stay current in my field by attending trainings and workshops on emerging trends and research. I also learn from my clients and am continually inspired by their stories. I have assisted people from all walks of life, from young children, adolescents, blended family systems and couples.
