Line One: Your Health Connection Host

Prentiss-PembertonPrentiss received a  BS in Psychology from Flagler College in 1989 and earned his MSW from The University of Alaska Anchorage in 1999. He has been working in the mental health field for the past 25 years. His work experience encompasses a wide spectrum including; Medical Social Worker for the Rehabilitation unit at Alaska Regional Hospital, clinical therapist at an adolescent residential treatment program, ten years as a therapeutic foster parent for delinquent teens, and as a crisis intervention specialist at a Community Mental Health Center. Prentiss has a passion for working with teens and adults who suffer from anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. Prentiss believes in each individual’s right to self determination and in their ability to change negative thinking and behavioral patterns.  Prentiss has been practicing as an individual, family, and marital therapist for the past 7 years. Prentiss is in Private Practice at Counseling Solutions of Alaska.

After several appearances as a guest of Dr. Woodard’s on Line One: Your health Connection, Prentiss teamed up Dr. Woodard. Today he hosts Line One the last Monday of early month on topics related to mental health. His interest in public radio stems from his desire to reduce the stigma associated with mental health and the opportunity it provides him to reach a large number of people who may be dealing with emotional or mental health problems.

Prentiss has been in Alaska for 18 years. He is married and has three young daughters. When he is not working or spending time with his family he enjoys pursuing the outdoor activities that brought him to Alaska.
