About us


Beverly Wayne
M.S., S.V.S., C.V., R.T

From 1985 to 2000, I worked with Dr. Clay Jorgenson at the Spokane County Jail on intake work for individuals convicted of sex offenses. I also assisted with Dr. Jorgenson's G.A.L. intake work. In 2000 to 2003, Dr. Jorgenson was my mentor while we opened Spokane Family Services. I have continued my education through online and in-person courses with PESI, as well as various workshops in play therapy, Washington social work, risk management, end of life issues, and marriage and family therapy. 

Additionally, I am a licensed Washington State mediator through The Pacific Family Mediation Institute. I have worked with WMC and was previously licensed as a registered counselor until 2010, when I decided to allow my license to lapse. I am passionate about advocating for families, and have served on the board for Indian Child Welfare through the Division of Children and Family Services. Furthermore, I believe continued education and practical experience are essential to my profession, which I have been involved with for approximately ten years.
