individualized care plan possible.

time with his family, hiking, and eating whatever he can get his hands on!

Marcus Toomey

Kevy Wijaya

Clinician

Kevy received his training pediatric primary care at Yale University. His extensive history of working in a pediatric Emergency Department, as well as in the primary care settings have provided him with a strong clinical base. 

Kevy especially enjoys with families who hailed to the greater Bellevue & Seattle area from all around the world. His advocacy reaffirms his interest of culturally-competent care and diversity in medicine, and his clinical and research interest have been revolving around the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and the nuts and bolts of LGBT parenting. 

 

Currently, Kevy is pursuing an additional MSc degree in Global Health and Infectious Diseases from the University of Edinburgh. In his spare time, Kevy spends time with his pet chinchillas and likes to travel to new and exotic places (ask him about his recent trips!), cooking, hiking and gardening. 

Marcus holds a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from City University of Seattle and a Bachelor of Arts in multidisciplinary studies and humanities from Western Washington University.

 

Both stops on his educational journey helped him develop a focus on culturally competent care that focuses on relational skills, patients feeling accepted and heard in therapy, and supporting the needs of those who struggle to advocate for themselves.  

 

His experience includes work with adults and children with developmental diversities, LGBTQIA+ patients, and family systems. Marcus is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, sexuality expression and sexual wellness, a number of models of play therapy, and care for those with traumatic pasts. 

In his spare time he can be found playing Magic: The Gathering, hiking, running, making music, and always looking for the best burrito out there. 

Brianna holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work with over 15 years of experience in behavioral mental health environment. Most recently, she worked as a behavioral specialist and behavioral interventionist for children with varying diagnoses such as autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, oppositional defiant disorder, attachment disorders, maltreatment disorders and trauma exposure and/or post-traumatic stress disorder.

 

Brianna has had extensive training in regulation tools, emotional identification and recognition. As a social worker, she firmly believes in the value of emotional-focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy as the most effective treatment modalities in treating behavioral health symptoms.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, hiking and gardening with my beautiful 6-year-old son.
