Stephen J Cummings, PhD, Psychologist in Seattle
I am an experienced pragmatic psychotherapist who also does psychological evaluations. My ideal client is one who has self doubts, experiences guilt and shame, yet has potential to be a highly fulfilled person. Such a client may have insecurities in work and relationships, yet be but one step away from doing well in these areas. Naturally, I have had a wide exposure to a diverse set of problems in living in my career.
My specialty is with troubled adults. Most of my clients are the "walking wounded" who need freedom from inner pain. Most clients present with problems in living that need reexamination. I often do what I call pragmatic therapy to help people reach their unrealized goals. I meet weekly for one hour most of the time.
I work later hours in a home office in Montlake. My professional experience is extensive and varied. I am often described as very approachable.Please see my website at for a photo and more information. My interests include travel, photography, and income inequality.
