Anne Lucas

School: Clinical Psychology

Bio:
Anne Lucas took a circuitous path to her work as a therapist. Her first career spanned 18 years in the building industry in Southern California moving from accounting clerk to Controller/CFO where she gained an expertise in business and accounting, team building, group and organizational dynamics and structures. In 1990 the California building industry crashed and Anne moved to Washington State where in 1993 she made the decision to embrace change and headed back to school to finish a long overdue Bachelors degree. Either by a cosmic accident or intervention, she stumbled into the LIOS program, graduating with her Bachelors in 1995 and completing her Masters in 1997.
Anne did her internship at Fairfax Psychiatric which led to her being hired a family therapist for the next three years in the hospital setting working primarily with children, adolescents and their families. Her relationship with the psychiatrists on staff at Fairfax opened another door for her when they invited her to join their expanding clinic practice. In 1998 Anne joined The Evergreen Clinic where she completed her externship and where she continues to practice, working with a wide range of mental illness and individual, couple and family issues. In 2009, she completed the training and requirements to become a State Approved Supervisor in Washington for licensure candidates and began supervising graduates.
In 2006, Anne was drawn to focus on couples work – premarital, marital, divorce and remarriage. Like most therapists, Anne recognized the emotional aftermath of divorce and the echoes it can have through post-divorce relationships for all family members. She found an answer in a healthier way to divorce through Collaborative Law and in 2007 she joined the Collaborative Law community as a Family Specialist. Her expertise in this role and the community continues to grow. She is part of an interdisciplinary training group - The Seattle Collaborative Law Training Group - whose purpose is developing curriculum and trainings for collaborative professionals in the United States and Canada. Anne is currently Vice President on the King County Collaborative Law Board of Directors and will be the first mental health professional to serve as President in 2011-2012.
In 2011 Anne will again be expanding her practice, this time as a mediator. She was invited to join Alhadeff and Forbes Mediation Affiliates where she will be mediating family, medical, construction and partnership disputes.
