Tiffany Chhuom, LSWAIC, CDP-T, MPH, MSW offers 18 years of professional experience practice, policy, research and administration that she used previously to contribute communication plans, marketing
strategies and social media use policies for NASW-WA while also serving on our Communications Committee.

As a therapist, treats veterans, people with disabilities, and survivors of all forms of violence (e.g. workplace harassment, campus sexual assault, Military Sexual Trauma, stalking, cyber abuse, rape, and childhood abuse).

Her new practice, Lucy in the Sky: Therapy for the Gifted, aims to serve gifted adults, those living with disabilities and those surviving trauma and addiction. She is particularly interested in how all of these things intersect as a practitioner, speaker and writer.

As the new NASW Standards for Technology in Social Work Practice influence our field, she recently completed advanced training in the UW Department of Bioethics where she will advance in ethics consultation.

Specifically, Tiffany has contributed original research, clinical skill, campaign management and organizational leadership on the use of technology and health in practice, enterprise, and research.

Her hope is to help practitioners, organizations, educators and policy makers remain relevant and compliant in our ever-evolving Digital Era.

Prior to graduate school, Tiffany was sought out to manage challenging studies in Social Work, Public Health, Criminal Justice, Addiction Medicine, Population Health, Health Disparities, and Child Welfare.

Her authorship in scientific, peer reviewed journals on addiction, child welfare, trauma, study implementation and studying the stress response of marginalized populations is noted.

From time to time she still trains others how to more ethically conduct scientific study with historically traumatized populations.
In policy, she served as a Policy Analyst at the Health Care Authority, making recommendations for the State Innovations Models Initiative and SB 6312. Her earlier policy days took new legislation headed by Partners for Our Children into action, coordinating complex data sharing agreements across 20 government agencies to prevent childhood injury.

While Tiffany’s experience mentioned above keeps her grounded, her favorite job was in practicum at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System serving Military Sexual Trauma survivors.

Her next step in life was to move to the country where she stays busy with 3 dobermans, 1 wiener dog, gardening and junkin’.

Her new practice, Lucy in the Sky: Therapy for the Gifted, aims to serve gifted adults, those living with disabilities and those surviving trauma and addiction.

She is particularly interested in how all of these things intersect as a practitioner, speaker and writer.

In her writing, she is planning a blog that will showcase her strong foundation in trauma and addiction research, her love for using comic book art, and the hobbies she indulges in to practice her own self-care, which include junkin’, thriftin’, succulents and decorating on a dime. She is currently taking no more than 10 clients at any given time so she has space to lead community workshops, teach, write and play.
