The predominant perspective at Wellspring Behavioral Health is holistic. which regards people and communities as wholes, not just parts pieced together. That means that one’s physical, psychological, spiritual, behavioral and other “selves” are all intertwined, acting together and impacting one another. Similarly, each person lives in a family/workplace/community which influence and are influenced by that person. In concrete terms this means that any difficulty that may bring you to see a psychologist is seen from a broad perspective opening a wealth of insight and ability to respond.

Rhonda Griffin, LPC
Although my training and clinical experience is diverse, the ideas and approaches I use in understanding and working with clients come from depth and family systems theories. This means we will focus on your thought patterns, past and present relationships and family experiences. I attempt to create an atmosphere in counseling that fosters self understanding including the meaning of thoughts and feelings of which we are unaware as well as recognizing the potential of our human spirit selves. Through understanding your behavior, I assist you to make the changes necessary to experience more satisfying relationships and life experience. We will achieve this through mindfulness, compassion and a sense of humor.
Includes a Master of Applied Behavioral Sciences from Bastyr University in Washington State with an emphasis on Systems Counseling. In addition, I have completed numerous trainings and workshops in psychology theory as well traditional indigenous healing techniques.
