Clinical Practice

Author and therapist George DuWors, MSW, LCSW, BCD has worked with a mix of addictive, psychological and relationship problems since 1971. Now practicing in Bellevue and Everett, WA, he has worked effectively in multiple settings, including inpatient, outpatient, EAP, and DUI programs. Ever pragmatic, he moves comfortably between solution-focused and problem-focused approaches.

How does he engage with you as client? Concretely – let’s look together at your reaction to real situations. What did you want to be different? As he often says, “If it were not for the ‘f’ word, ‘frustration,’ no one would ever call a therapist. He approaches individuals, couples, and groups in the same unrelentingly down-to-earth fashion.

Unique assets: Ability to blend Cognitive Behavioral and Twelve Step/Spiritual principles, but not afraid to look at a dream or a fantasy. Seems to have an uncommon grasp of how Twelve Step structure and process directly prevents relapse choices.George DuWors is a published author with numerous articles and the ground-breaking book, “White Knuckles and Wishful Thinking, Learning from the Moment of Relapse” (second edition, Hogrefe and Huber, 2000).For a brief summary of White Knuckles and Wishful Thinking, Learning from the Moment of Relapse in Alcoholism and Other Addictions, please CLICK HERE
