Justine Sullivan​, Psychology Counseling Intern

I received my bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Oregon State University in 2020. I am currently pursuing my master’s in psychology with a focus in Counseling from UMass Global. I’m from the Tacoma area and have lived here all my life except for my four years at Oregon State. After graduating in 2020, I moved back home to Washington and worked for the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) in Juvenile Rehabilitation. I worked as a counselor assistant at Oakridge Community Facility, a group home for incarcerated youth. I managed a caseload of two youths and assisted in the development and implementation of treatment and reentry plans. I also provided individual counseling and used Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as a treatment model. I left this job in 2021 after deciding to go back to school to pursue a higher degree.

My approach to counseling depends on the client and his or her specific needs. I prefer to use evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). My goal is to support and empower my clients to achieve their goals in an environment that emphasizes confidentiality, respect, trust, and compassion.  

Tony Reda, Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Tony Reda was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He grew up in King and Pierce County and enjoys hunting and fishing throughout the State of Washington. He is a devoted husband of 26 years and a proud father of two amazing sons now ages 24 and 22. His passion is rooted in family systems work, dialectical therapy, cognitive and behavior therapies, and emotionally focused work. Tony believes that each client stems from a diverse and unique family culture. Where members are the experts on what works and does not work within their respective systems, yet together, we will explore your truth.

Tony acknowledges his lived experience has a wide range of positive and negative outcomes interwoven with joy, heartbreak, abundant faith, and wonderful victories, but ultimately anything is possible with love and focused intention. To be the best husband and father his family deserves he has built resilience in overcoming addiction, depression, navigation of mental and behavioral challenges, and regulating the anxiety experienced in support of his autistic son. Tony believes his greatest strength and gifting is being humble and encouraging others while walking alongside them.

In 2016, Tony became a Certified Peer Counselor and began working as a Parent Partner for a statewide non-profit family behavioral health agency. Tony was quickly promoted to a Level II CPC and completed his Level II Crisis and Intervention Specialist certification with NAMA. In 2020 Tony graduated with honors while earning his bachelor's degree in clinical psychology. Tony is presently pursuing his Graduate studies at Colorado Christian University and will open a private practice in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2024. Tony utilizes various theoretical frameworks to support his clients and believes that a biopsychosocial perspective presents the greatest representation of holistic healing.
