I have known Claire Sutton through our work together as members of the BCACC, through her consulting and supervision, and through her teaching in the master’s program at City University of Seattle. Claire is a talented, thoughtful, generous and effective therapist whose client-centered skills are outstanding. She takes this core competency much further with her incisive grasp of the dynamics, ethics, and structural aspects of Employee Assistance work. In working with students and supervisees, she makes abstractions like “fiduciary duty” and “ethical imperative” conceptually clear while she guides her supervisees into action through vigilant, accountable decision-making.
