Mental Health Support on Campus

  • Mental Health Counseling & Therapy

    We are currently working with two outside agencies to provide mental health support at Shorewood. We have therapists from Ryther and Center for Human Services on our campus two days a week. Please see their specific info below. If you are interested in pursuing this support, contact your current school counselor who can initiate the referral process. 

  • Ryther Outpatient Clinic

    Mondays and Thursdays

    Ryther Front Desk: 206-525-5050

    Ryther Address: 2​400 NE 95th St, Seattle, WA 98115

    Therapy services are not funded through the school. Depending on the student’s insurance coverage, there may be fees and co-pays. When the referral is processed, Ryther’s intake team will check with the insurance company and the student's family to ensure there is coverage and a payment plan if there are co-pays/fees.

     

    What do I do if I am interested in receiving therapy services at the school?

    Wonderful! Please talk to your school counselor, and they will help coordinate a time to do a meet and greet with one of the therapists. At the meet and greet they will answer any questions you may have and explain more about therapy so you can decide if this is a service you want.

    What if I decide I want therapy?

    Let your school counselor know and they will fill out a referral form to send to Ryther. You’ll then be scheduled for an intake appointment.

    How long will it take for me to start therapy?

    Great question! As there have been a lot of referrals, it may take a few weeks for you to be scheduled. Please be patient.

    Will therapy be scheduled during class?

    Ms. Lantz is at Shorewood on Mondays and Ms. Mueller is at Shorewood on Thursdays during the school day, so sessions may be scheduled during class time. There is some limited availability right before and after school. Our therapists will work together with the student to find a time that least conflicts with their schedule and learning.
