Tatiana Barton is a mental health clinician who, prior to her position at the UW, was working in community mental health settings. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, followed by a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 2018 from The Seattle school of Theology and Psychology. Her foundational training is rooted in the traditions of relational psychodynamic psychotherapy.
She has spent the past five years with Program for Assertive Community Treatment teams (PACT) in Washington state. Her interest in working with clients with severe and persistent mental illness led her to transition from a PACT mental health clinician to PACT Team Lead, involved with the start-up and organization of a new PACT team, to her current role as a Continuing Education Specialist. She will be focusing on working with team leads on various processes and interventions related to PACT.
