We are dedicated to fostering a supportive, positive, and compassionate environment. We will treat you with dignity, respect, and genuine concern for your well-being.
Our approach is collaborative, respectful, and highly individualized based on your needs. We are here to help you grow authentically and positively in the direction you choose.
We promise to handle your privacy with care. Complete confidentiality is our commitment to you.
Meet the Founders
Puget Sound Psychotherapy & Psychiatry was founded in 2014 by two therapists, Evonne Noble and Brien Wood. Evonne and Brien kept hearing from talented colleagues about the professional and personal challenges of working in isolation. They also heard many caring colleagues lament that running a practice on their own simply distracted them from the focal point of their practice, especially when insurance was involved. From clients, they heard how frustrating it was for many people seeking help to find therapists who had openings, met their needs, and were quick at responding.
So they brought together Evonne’s background in business and financial management, and Brien’s experience of developing a flourishing private practice, and PSP was born. From the two initial clinicians, Puget Sound Psychotherapy & Psychiatry has grown into a collective of more than two dozen mental health providers, spanning a wide array of specialities, lived experiences, and professional offerings.

The Team Today
Puget Sound Psychotherapy & Psychiatry is owned and managed by Evonne Noble. John Helmiere serves as the Director of Operations and Strategy, overseeing community engagement, organizational vitality, and our robust administrative team. The PSP admin team makes the magic happen behind the scenes by handling intake, accounts, insurance, and administrative issues so that the therapy process is smooth for the clients and the clinicians.
We are proud of the dynamic community of clinicians at PSP with many experienced clinical leaders and supervisors. Brien Wood continues to provide clinical leadership via supervision, consultation and training. Several clinicians on the team such as Becka Shaw, Nick Coniaris and Gabe Gomez have been clinicians for over 20, 25 and 30 years, respectively, while others are in the PSP mentoring program and putting energy into training as they jump-start their career after finishing graduate school.
The clinicians at Puget Sound Psychotherapy & Psychiatry share a belief that we as healers must work on personal development just as much as professional growth. We are right in the muck alongside our clients as we each work to be more self-aware, more compassionate, and to bring not just rigor and but also humor and joy into our therapy.
