Caprice D. Hollins, Psy.D.

Affiliate Professor

Dr. Caprice D. Hollins was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and grew up in the Rainier Valley. She received an AA from Shoreline Community College, a B.A. in psychology from Seattle University and an M.A. and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Multicultural and Community Psychology from California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles, California.

Dr. Hollins returned to Seattle in 1998 where she completed her post doc at Atlantic Street Center – a local mental health agency serving primarily youth and families of color. At that time she became licensed as a clinical psychologist. Her focus has been on working with children and families from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. For the past 10 years she has facilitated workshops and taught graduate courses at Seattle Pacific University, Antioch University and University of Washington ― increasing students’ and participants’ awareness, knowledge and skills in working with ethnically diverse populations.

Dr. Hollins served as the Director of Equity, Race & Learning Support for Seattle Public Schools for four years where she supported the educational efforts of the District to dismantle institutional racism. She recently started a consulting business, Cultures Connecting, LLC, providing culturally relevant professional development and consulting services to organizations seeking to improve their skills in effectively engaging all cultures.
Dr. Hollins works hard to balance her passion and commitment to equity while at the same time raising a young family with her husband, Gary Hollins. Together they have two young children and she has three adult step children.
