Psychologist and Therapist in Tacoma, Washington, Susan Poole, PhD

Susan Poole, PhD

I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Washington. I joined Rainier Behavioral Health in 1999 after completing an internship at Duke University and earning a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in counseling psychology from Washington State University in 1998.
I work with adolescents and adults who are facing a variety of concerns such as: depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, bipolar disorder, adjustment to life stressors, adolescent issues, post-partum depression, sexual assault/abuse, divorce, marital issues, grief, gay/lesbian/bisexual issues.
I view psychotherapy as a powerful process with the potential to change unhealthy life patterns, reduce uncomfortable emotional symptoms, restore a feeling of control over life, and improve self-esteem. I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches, especially cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal, based on the needs of the individual client and knowledge of research findings for effective treatments.
My goal is to form a partnership with you and, through collaboration, build a treatment plan that will address your concerns and ultimately leave you empowered and prepared to manage your life with success.
