Jerry E Butler, Mental Health Counselor

I am a licensed mental health counselor in Washington State, with about thirty years experience in the mental health field.  I work with adults with PTSD, social anxiety and other anxiety problems, relationship problems and depression.  I have evening and weekend appointments available.  I offer an initial free half hour consultation, where you can get to know me and my approach better.   I am an in-network provider with First Choice Health, LifeSynch and ComPsych.  I am also an authorized Fee Service provider with the Puget Sound VA, so if you are a veteran with a mental health related service connection, the cost of your therapy may be covered through the Fee Services program.  I am a certified provider with Tri Care with partial coverage available.  I qualify as a non-network provider with a number of other insurance companies, where the cost of therapy may be partially covered.  I am flexible in my therapy approach, focusing on listening to the unique human being in front of me to guide how I respond.  While I avoid rigidly adhering to one approach, I am influenced by cognitive and mindfulness approaches to therapy.
