Abe Reichlin, LCSW
Founder, Executive Director
Facilitator, Co-Developer, and Therapist
Executive Team

Abe founded The Trauma Academy Northwest, LLC to provide trauma-based training and consultation to child/adolescent-centered nonprofit organizations and educators due to the dichotomous position they hold: receiving the least amount of relevant training while serving the most developmentally harmed and emotionally needy children and adolescents.  Having been clinically trained in social work, and having worked with children and families in outpatient, crisis, respite, day treatment, and in-home settings, Abe brings a wealth of knowledge and experience into the training & consultation and outpatient therapy programs.  Abe oversees all aspects of The Trauma Academy Northwest, LLC.
