Juliette Knight

 Juliette Knight Licensed Social Worker AssociateJuliette holds a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Washington and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Evergreen State College with an emphasis in multi-cultural counseling, psychology and child welfare.  She has over 20 years of experience in providing advocacy (domestic violence survivors), counseling (group and individual), and social work services to mainly older adolescent (16-18) and adult clientele.

Juliette is a Licensed Social Worker Associate Independent Clinical with the Department of Health, currently under supervision. She facilitates a monthly support group for parents, caregivers, transgender/ gender non-conforming children, and a monthly Huntington’s disease support group. Previous work includes helping facilitate a state certified domestic violence perpetrator group treatment program. As a certified Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Professional awarded from the Institute for Diversity Certification, Juliette has a strong commitment to helping others understand the impact of unconscious bias in their daily lives (personal and professional), and how upon examination and reflection they can push toward new ways of thinking and behaving. This includes a specific interest in helping agencies create the best working environment possible for staff, including assessing and examining organizational culture through team building activities.

Juliette enjoys incorporating the EAGALA model, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) into her practice and she is currently in the certification process.  She embraces the opportunity the EAP model creates for clients to examine life issues and evolve the way in which they address situations impacting their life. She is particularly interested in the parallel process parents and caregivers may experience as their minor or adult gender non-conforming children transition. Additional interests include a passion in helping individuals and families experiencing stressors due to relocation, and helping clients in other life transitions such as divorce. Helping those who live with chronic illness/pain due to an invisible or visible disability is another area of specific interest.
