Growth and Healing



Welcome to my private practice website.  Whether you are looking for professional support and guidance through a challenging life situation right now or seeking treatment for a mental health disorder, counseling with a skilled and compassionate therapist offers an opportunity to grow, heal and change.  
Many and varied life circumstances lead a person to consider the benefits of therapy.  Therapy offers a wonderful opportunity to be heard, explore and express feelings and perceptions, gain clarity and receive support and guidance for desired new actions.  As a mental health professional, I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, family and other relationship issues, chronic illness or pain, and grief and loss.  As a registered dietitian, I am also able to provide nutritional assessment and counseling for children, adolescents and adults with eating concerns, weight concerns or eating disorders.  I specialize in family therapy and family-based treatments (FBT and FBT-TAY) for eating disorders.   


OUT OF OFFICE UNTIL 1/7/19:  My back up therapist for established clients during this break (12/20 to 1/7) is Kristi Colwell, LMHC, telephone number 206-726-6040 or kclmhc@gmail.com.

If you are making a first inquiry about regular personal counseling with me, please note that my practice is currently full.  Although I have a waiting list, I am now not able to add to it until after February 15, 2019.  You are welcome to call me at that time to inquire about possible future openings.  As of February 15, 2019, I will be fully out of network as a provider.  If you asked to be placed on my waiting list before today, please know you are on it.  If my pending out of network status means you will not be interested in working with me come your turn, please let me know.  Thank you.  Worth the reminder is that very nutritionally compromised persons or individuals and families in crisis are strongly encouraged to seek treatment with a clinician who is available now or very soon.
