Counseling Program in Seattle

Saybrook’s Seattle location also offers the following Master's-level graduate program:

  • MA Psychology, with a specialization in Counseling – a degree focused on systems counseling and family therapy. The counseling program prepares you for licensure in the State of Washington (Mental Health Counselor, Marriage and Family Therapist), the State of Oregon (Licensed Professional Counselor), or the State of California (Licensed Professional Counselor). For compatibility with requirements elsewhere, please consult with our faculty.

Experiential Learning at Its Best

Face-to-face residential learning, which is an integral component of both programs, occurs in a series of residential conferences throughout the year. Onsite activities are supplemented with online learning, discussion, and teamwork. Students learn to work together in teams in both educational and practical settings.The faculty-to-student ratio is kept deliberately low: 1:15 in the first year,1:8 in the second. The resulting community of learners engenders a unique learning experience that has produced skilled professionals dating back to the program's origin as the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) more than 40 years ago.
