Hi. I’m Jennie Ketcham. Sometimes, I go by Jennie Ketcham Crooks. You can call me Jennie.
I’m a psychotherapist, medical social worker, artist, writer and blogger.
In a past life (i.e. my 20’s), I was a reality T.V. personality, and pornographic film actress and director. I’ve appeared on Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tyra Banks Show, The View, Entertainment Tonight, Extra, and Life Changers to discuss alcohol and substance use disorder, and sex addiction, and my blog has been featured on Last Call wit Carson Daly. I was a regular contributor on HLN with Dr. Drew.
I graduated with a Masters in Social Work from the University Washington in 2016, and am currently a medical social worker at The Polyclinic; I act as a primary care brief interventionist, and I have the privilege and honor to work on a variety of issues with people across the lifespan. I work most with young adults, adults, and older adults. In Polyclinic’s Behavioral Health setting, I facilitated a variety of Mindfulness-Based groups, such as Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, & Mindfulness 101.
In addition to working in Primary Care, I have a private practice. I’m most skilled at working with people with depressive disorders (major or persistent), anxiety disorders (generalized, social, panic attacks), alcohol or substance use disorder (active or in remission, and abstinence- or moderation-based), and trauma. I get real pumped when someone decides they’ve had enough and they want to make a change; I’m honored to be the therapist someone considers choosing to support that change decision.
My professional interests revolve around program development, cognitive-behavioral, acceptance-, and mindfulness-based treatments, wellness and recovery retreats, and all things self-care and self-compassion.
Off time? More like on-time! I love traveling, hiking, snow sports, meditation and yoga, and I’m *mildly obsessed* with kayaking (though I don’t presently own a kayak due to a series of unfulfilled requirements like, “way to transport kayak” and “place to store kayak”). I’m married to a super sweet guy from the Midwest, and we have two adorable babies: one skin baby, and one fur baby.
