About Wade Walter
I have over 32 years of broad and rich experience in the mental health counseling field. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state and am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional. Anxiety and mood disorders are a particular area of specialization for me. However, I also have extensive experience working with clients who have other severe and persistent mental disorders. My clients achieve rapid results through exploration of how their thoughts effect their emotional experiences. My theoretical orientation is primarily Cognitive Behavioral. However, I also incorporate elements of Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness into my work with clients. I work with individuals, couples, and families.
I have provided crisis intervention, clinical case management and counseling to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness in community mental health centers in Washington and Oregon. I have supervised therapists in a community mental health centers and am a qualified supervisor for purposes of licensure.
I am primarily offering TeleMental Health services in Washington state. I offer weekend and evening hours for busy working people. I also am able to make flexible payment arrangements including discounted/sliding scale.
