Michael Samsel

I have been a registered nurse since 1986, working in medical, emergency room, and psychiatric settings .I completed a master’s degree in Child, Couple, and Family Therapy at Antioch University Seattle in 2004. I spent a year working in the schools-based counseling service of Seattle Mental Health. I’ve also worked with Family Preservation Services, teaching conflict management and parenting skills, and providing family, child, and individual therapy to high risk families. I've maintained a private practice since April of 2007. In the state of Washington, I have worked as a DSHS Certified Domestic Violence Perpetrator Treatment Provider.
