Owner + Eating Disorder and OCD Therapist

About Allyson Inez Ford

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. I grew up watching several family members struggle with mental illness including addiction, anxiety and depression. Then, in my late teens I developed an eating disorder. Little did I know I was also struggling with OCD and anxiety. After going through my own recovery, I became even more determined to help others as I experienced first hand how life changing and incredibly hard recovery is. I also realized how much stigma there is around mental health and it is my mission to change this. I never want my clients to feel as alone as I did.

I went to University of Washington for my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Later, I graduated from New Mexico State University with my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Since then, I have had extensive training in Eating Disorders, OCD and Trauma. My approach is a feminist, intersectional, deeply relational style that aims to individualize your treatment to your specific needs. I often use techniques from IFS, ACT and ERP (for OCD).

​Outside of my work, I love hiking with my two dogs, going to the beach, traveling and spending time with my husband and family.

I truly care for all of my clients, and work diligently to help them recover and reclaim agency over their lives. This work is so meaningful to me and I am honored to be considered apart of your healing journey.
