Education & Training

Seattle Men's Counselor - Justin Pere I have earned a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology from Seattle University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology & Sociology from Western Washington University. I often assist with Seattle University's Masters in Counseling Psychology degree program and supervise graduate students.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (License #60153704) in the State of Washington, which means I have fullfilled the requirement for post-graduate hours for client hours, clinical supervision, and passed a national clinical exam.

Seattle Men's Counselor - Justin PereI have served on the Board of the Seattle Counselors Association, regularly attend a variety of professional conferences throughout the year, and am a member of a number of organizations.

My education in couples and marriage counseling includes training in Emotion Focused Therapy, or EFT, and the Gottman Method. EFT is usually a short term (8-20 sessions), structured approach to couples therapy validated by over 30 years of empirical research, while the Gottman approach to therapy has over 40 years of clinical research. These two approaches to relationship therapy are considered the most current and effective ways we know to help couples create, repair, and maintain healthy relationships that last.

I have received Mindfulness training from a number of sources, including workshops, trainings, and retreats, and regularly meet with Mindfulness specialists for consultation.

My EMDR training is through the EMDR Institute and EMDRIA (EMDR International Association). I have attended a number of workshops and conferences, and regularly meet with EMDR specialists for consultation.
