Kristen Wong, Director of Counseling and Recovery
work: 425-452-9920
As EA's Director of Counseling and Recovery, it is Kristen's goal to provide a safe space for students to be themselves and feel accepted. When students begin to understand that they are not alone in their struggles, they can safely address their own hurts, difficulties, and weaknesses. Kristen grew up in Rainier Beach and is a 4th generation Seattle native who loves to eat but hates to cook. She is the kind of friend who will tell you if you have something on your face. Despite what her two teenage sons might think, she believes her weirdness is fun and endearing. Kristen joined the EA family as a counselor in 2013 with a Masters in Counseling from Western Seminary Seattle and BA in Psychology from UW. She plans to work at EA until she can retire and volunteer with Ned and Mike.
