Randy Nelson, MA, LMHC likes words and people. Ten years ago, he fortuitously stumbled upon Narrative Therapy in the Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling program at Seattle University. He is an active member of the Seattle Narrative Group, a long-running Narrative Therapy consultation and training collective. For the last eight years he has worked as an adult counselor in the community mental health setting of Harborview Mental Health Services. He has conducted trainings on Narrative Therapy for the Department of Psychiatry at Harborview Medical Center. In the consulting room and in life, Randy endeavors to position himself at the clunky and elusive intersection of skepticism, lightheartedness, and solidarity.
