About Sheila Addison

Revolution is not a one-time event - Audre Lorde

Raised by a feminist single mother in the Midwest, Dr. Sheila Addison, LMFT was taught early on that women deserve equal opportunities. In her training as a Marriage and Family Therapist, Dr. Addison expanded her perspective on social justice to include intersections of gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, body size, and more.  She earned her Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Syracuse University; she now has a small private practice as a Certified Gottman Therapist working with the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities. 

Dr. Addison works as core faculty in the Couple and Family Therapy program at Antioch University Seattle, and offers supervision and supervisor mentoring as an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. She is also Executive Director of Margin to Center Consulting, which nurtures pre-licensed associates from equity-deserving groups in earning licensure and becoming self-employed small business owners. She provides diversity and inclusion support, including the Ally Skills Workshop, to corporate, academic, and community clients. She lives in Seattle, Washington, with her partner and their two cats who have taught her to dispense treats on command.
