Opening Pathways to the Soul

Ann B. Blake, Ph.D.

(206) 898-6563

PLEASE NOTE: I am not taking new clients at this time (updated on May 4, 2022).​

The above is my mailing address, NOT my office location.
I will give you my office address during our initial phone call.

You can leave a message on my cell phone answering service any time during the day or night, 24 hours per day. I make every effort to return calls within 24 hours.

Due to my work schedule, I am often not immediately available by telephone.

When you leave a message, please leave your area code and phone number as well as possible times that you are available to take my return call.

When I am away from the office for an extended period of time, I will provide you with a name and contact number of a colleague to contact in case of emergency.

If you are experiencing a crisis and are unable to reach me or cannot wait for me to return your call, please contact one of the following resources: 

  • Your family physician
  • Crisis Connections (formerly Crisis Clinic): (866) 427-4747
  • Call 988 National Suicide Crisis Line (24 hours)
  • Call 911
  • Nearest hospital; nearest insurance-affiliated hospital


I attempt to avoid using technology as much as possible based on privacy and confidentiality issues. Internet technology is not private or confidential.

The most effective means of contacting me between sessions is via phone and voice mail: (206) 898-6563. Clients may leave a message on my cell phone 24 hours per day. I make every effort to return phone calls within 24 hours.

Although my main communication modality is my cell phone (I have no land line), please be aware that cell phones are not completely private or confidential. I attempt to use my cell phone only for administration purposes such as making and changing appointment times; when I leave a message, I will be as circumspect as possible: I will not identify myself as your therapist, and I will use my first name only; I will refer to our appointments as “meetings.” I prefer person-to-person conversations rather than text messaging; when I receive a text message, I will briefly respond. 

Occasionally, I use my cell phone for brief emergency phone conversations; please know that this modality is not completely private or confidential. 

I do not have an e-mail address connected with my website. This website offers information and is not interactive (i.e., not for scheduling/rescheduling appointments or giving me information).

For current clients, I offer an encrypted phone number and e-mail address. I do not access social media sites.


During the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine, I offer Telehealth serivces through an encrypted video platform as well as an encrypted telephone number. During our intake appointment, I will offer information about these resources. 

"Don't wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happniness you get you've got to make yourself."

~Alice Walker


"In every crisis there is 
a message. Crises are nature's way of forcing change: breaking down old structures, shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better 
can take 
their place." 

~Susan L. Taylor


"Deal with yourself as an individual 
worthy of respect,
and make everyone else deal with you
 the same way."

~Nikki Giovanni


"We dream 
to give 
ourselves hope. To stop dreaming,
well, that's like saying you can never change your fate." 

~Amy Tan
