Growth and Healing


Note:  Out of office May 16 - June 21, 2022.

Current clients may contact my backup therapist, Lara Effland LICSW at 425-243-0936 for interim appointments or emergencies.  

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 change. 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.

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 had a waiting list in the past, I am no longer able to add to it.  I will likely not be taking new clients inquiring today for several months. You are welcome to call me to inquire about possible future openings. It may take me a week or longer 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.
