Psychometry Services

Tom Erickson, MA, CSP, NCC, LMHC

About

I have been a psychometrist since 1983 and am experienced working with all adult populations in neuropsychological assessments. 

I'm one of the first Certified Specialists in Psychometry (CSP) - one of less than 15 in the State of Washington - and there are only 248 around the world.

I am the first psychometrist who is also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) (LH00011320) in addition to being a National Certified Counselor (NCC)  (211380).

In addition, I am also a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in psychometry and past president (2007-2010) of the Board of Certified  Psychometrists (BCP).  I am a charter member of  the National Association of Psychometrists (NAP), former NAP Board Member & Treasurer, and current NAP and BCP webmaster. 

I currently work in a large medical center as well as in private practice with licensed clinical/forensic neuropsychologists providing comprehensive  neuropsychological assessments.

I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology from City University in 2003, graduating first in my class. 

I provided therapy services at the Community Psychiatric Clinic (CPC) in Seattle.  I volunteered at the King County Crisis Clinic and have been a co-facilitator at a local Alzheimer's Disease Caregivers group.  I was a member of the ACA, Washington Mental Health Counselors Association (WMHCA) and several other professional organizations.  In Western Washington I was the Pacific Northwest Neuropsychological Society (PNNS) Associate Member Representative.

I am frequent blood donor, now working on my 11th gallon. 

Thank you!
