Our Clinicians

Samantha Slaughter, PsyD

Curriculum vitae

I am a clinical psychologist who works with adults. The people who come to see me struggle with a range of problems, and I have a major focus on working with individuals who have experienced trauma in their lives. I also provide psychological assessments for civil and criminal cases, learning disability and other neurocognitive evaluations (i.e., AD/HD), and assessments to enhance diagnostic clarification for patients of physicians and clients of mental health providers. I have worked in a wide range of clinical settings, including a state prison, a cancer support center, and a substance abuse treatment program. My current clinical practice is informed by this very broad experience, all of which allows me to empower clients to more functional and satisfying lives.

In addition to clinical work, I am also the CEO of Integrative Psychological Services of Seattle.

Kathleen King, PhD

Curriculum vitae

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with individuals and couples who struggle with building and maintaining healthy relationships. My work also includes treating individuals and couples, who are dealing with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In addition to my academic training, I completed a pre-doctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Fremont Community Therapy Project (FCTP). At FCTP, I worked with adults and couples struggling with an array of concerns, ranging from trauma to depression to anxiety to relationship problems and everything in-between. I conducted psychotherapy and assessment services, as well as facilitated dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) groups.

Prior to my internship at FCTP, I worked at Sound Mental Health and Healthpoint. In these settings, I worked with diverse populations, which included individuals of all ages, cultures, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs. I conducted psychological assessments, provided individual and group therapy, and presented multiple workshops on various topics, including but not limited to healthy relationships, positive self-esteem, parenting skills, and anxiety.

I also have experience working with individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Early in my career, I worked as an applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapist for pre-school and school-aged children. I also conducted research on autism spectrum disorder and the effects of various parenting styles. I have also worked with partners of individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Carmen Lasby, PsyD

Curriculum vitae

I am a psychologist who specializes in helping adults heal from childhood trauma, learning new ways to think and live in the world, and identify a better understanding of oneself and the relationships with those around them. I enjoy working with adults who have persevered in life and who have the courage to want something better for themselves. Many people in childhood are left to navigate the world alone. The work I do, as a therapist, allows me to walk beside you, in the here and now, and help you navigate through the new and old territory in your life.

Michelle Slaughter, DPT, GCS

Curriculum vitae

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Geriatric Physical Therapy. I have an interest in helping adults improve and maintain strength, balance, confidence, and independence with mobility. As part of the requirements for earning my degree in physical therapy, I completed training in an acute inpatient rehabilitation setting where I provided physical therapy services for people with acute cardiac and respiratory conditions, stroke, and traumatic brain injury. In this setting I also provided rehabilitation services for people following joint replacement or internal fixation surgery for bone fractures. Secondly, I completed training at an inpatient spinal cord injury unit providing interventions for seating, assistive devices, bracing, strength training, balance training, and creating adaptive exercise/activity programs. Finally, I trained at an outpatient orthopedics clinic with focus on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions such as low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, and rehabilitation for a variety of orthopedic surgeries.

For three years I practiced at a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) where I was responsible for providing rehabilitation services with a team of nurses, physicians, social workers, occupational therapists, and speech and language pathologists. With this team, I provided rehabilitation services for the inpatient community including residents of the skilled nursing facility and long term care. In addition, I provided physical therapy services on an outpatient basis for residents of the assisted living and independent living communities.
