David Randall Crump

Education: Ph.D. from Brigham Young University in Counseling Psychology.  School Principal certificate from Washington State University and a degree in School Psychology from Brigham Young University.

Biography: My strength is that I have worked in a wide variety of settings and always with multi-agency collaboration involvement. My experience includes traditional outpatient services, employee assistance program services, private practice, chemical dependency inpatient and outpatient, youth residential services, sex offender group home, hospital based inpatient, school based services, collaborative school programs, supervision and management of child and adolescent mental health programs. My current job is Director of Student Services in the second largest school district in the State of Washington. In this job I supervise many of the satellite programs for students that need additional help and structure, from mental health to conduct issues. I also sought after and obtained State licensure for the District to be a licensed mental health provider. It is the only one in the northwest and one of only two on the west coast. I have a great interest in collaborative projects and believe the school system provides the best access to children and youth in their natural environment and hence has the greatest opportunity to be generalized to the individual's everyday life. I have great interest in being a life-long learner and seeing how all of us grow in families and systems.
