OUT OF OFFICE July 17 through July 26, 2020.  I will not have access to phone or internet during this time.

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, psychotherapy with a skilled and compassionate therapist may offer 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.   

PRACTICE UPDATE as of 7/17/2020, including practice changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic:  

CURRENT CLIENTS:  My practice has shifted entirely to tele-therapy until physical distancing recommendations have changed.  I am operating in accordance with both Gov. Inslee's ordinances and on the CDC recommendation that physical distancing be implemented until the pandemic is under better control.  Meanwhile, I am offering online sessions through the HIPAA-compliant SimplePractice practice management system.  I am inviting all current clients into this network and have found it very user-friendly.  

NEW INQUIRIES:  If you are making a first inquiry about regular personal therapy or nutrition counseling with me, please note that my practice is currently full.  Although I have a waiting list, I will likely not be taking new clients added today for several months.  You are welcome to call me to inquire about possible future openings.  It may take me up to a week to return calls from people new to me.  Very nutritionally compromised individuals and families in crisis are strongly encouraged to seek a clinician who is available now or very soon.

The 24 week ADOLESCENT RO DBT CLASS (includes separate parent classes) HAS CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT.   As of this notice, there is space in the class, which is on break and not meeting until late September.  I can provide pre-registration assessments of coping style and some individual primers for RO DBT between now and September.  Please see the RO DBT skills class page for details about the class, which will be offered online for the duration of the regional recommended physical distancing protocol.  

The 30 week ADULT RO DBT CLASS HAS CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT.   Registration is always underway for the Tuesday evening adult skills classes (ages 18+).  As of this notice, there is space in the class, which is on break and not meeting until late September.  I can offer pre-registration assessments of coping style and some individual primers for RO DBT between now and September.  Please see the link for RO-DBT skills class.  This class will be offered online for the duration of the regional recommended physical distancing protocol.
