Hi. I’m Jennie Ketcham. Sometimes I go by Jennie Ketcham Crooks. You can call me Jennie.
I’m apsychotherapist, medical social worker, artist, writer and blogger. In a past life (a.k.a., my 20’s), I was a reality television personality, and pornographic film actress and film director. I’ve appeared on Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, Sober House, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tyra Banks Show, The View, Entertainment Tonight, Extra and Lifechangers to discuss alcohol use disorder, substance use disorder, and sex addiction, and my blog has been featured on Last Call with Carson Daly.
In 2016, I graduated with a Masters in Social Work from the University Washington, and am currently the lead medical social worker at The Polyclinic. 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. Currently, I act as a Primary Care brief interventionist, where I have the privilege and honor work on a variety of issues with people across the lifespan.
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 center on 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 in-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.
