My name is Kylie Chaffin, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Spokane area. My services include but are not limited to: treatment for anxiety, depression, and other related problems, trauma therapy, aid with transition issues, career counseling, postpartum depression, anger management, behavioral struggles, sex offender and substance use treatment. I received a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Brigham Young University–Idaho and a Master’s degree in counseling from the University of Detroit–Mercy in Michigan. I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient therapy.
In 2015, I was awarded a grant to work specifically with at-risk adolescents in the city of Detroit. As per the requirements of the grant, I received additional training in providing therapy that addressed the unique needs of adolescents ages 12 to 21.
I have also received training in Trauma-Focused CBT for the treatment of children and adolescents who have experienced traumatic events in their life. My scope of trauma practice has mainly included treating individuals (mainly adolescents) who have experienced physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and neglect.
In addition to my experience with trauma, I have worked extensively with adolescent sexual offenders (ages 12 to 21) in an inpatient setting. I am also prepared to provide reentry or maintenance counseling for individuals who struggle with sexual issues.
I have also experience in crisis intervention, emotional deescalation, suicide assessment, anger management, multicultural counseling, and behavior modification.
