Patient Relations Coordinator
Kyle is the senior receptionist and head of new patient registration. Born and raised in Torrance, California, he fell in love with the Pacific Northwest as an undergrad student at Seattle University. After graduating with a BA in Biology and minor in Japanese, he completed training as a Medical Assistant and originally started gathering his clinical experience in the urgent care and pediatric settings. In the last year, Kyle has made Psychiatry Northwest his home while he prepares for grad school, finding it gratifying to guide patients through the oftentimes complex process of receiving mental health care. He prioritizes treating patients with dignity and empathy, and strives to learn and improve from every unique encounter.
In his free time, Kyle enjoys cooking, working out, and reading nonfiction. He indulges in his sewing hobby to design costumes when the mood strikes, and can usually be found alongside his husband in West Seattle, relaxing with a can of sparkling water.
