About Dr. Spence
I am a Puget Sound native who has been working with children, adolescents, and adults as a mental health practitioner in a variety of settings. I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Seattle and hold a masters degree in Public Administration from the University of Washington. My APPIC approved pre-doctoral internship was completed at Cleveland State University’s Counseling Center, serving young adults struggling with identify development, life transition, learning disorders, interpersonal trauma, anxiety and depression, and personality disorders. I have also completed training with children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties in a therapeutic day school and in community mental health.

With a strong focus on social justice issues and working with people from a wide range of identities and backgrounds, I have pursued additional study and training in areas such as the experiences of the survivors of childhood maltreatment and people who are transgender or gender nonbinary. Before my career as a psychologist, I worked for many years with college students at the University of Washington.
