SunsetHomePage.001Do you identify?

“I can’t stop thinking about food and weight.”


“I’m ‘too sensitive.’”


“I’m stressed out.”


 “I have a hard time saying ‘No.'”


 “I feel alone. Even around people.”

 If any of the above feel like a match

let’s talk.

Help can happen and there is hope… 

Hi, I’m Alli Spotts-De Lazzer, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I earned the Certified Eating Disorders Specialist (CEDS) designation in 2013 and became a CEDS Approved Supervisor in 2017. The CEDS is currently the only nationally recognized certification indicating a specific level of training and competence in treating eating disorders.

As a psychotherapist, my goal is to help you to gain more freedom from your concerns and struggles. Together, we can work to provide you with more of the quality of life and relationships that you want.

I specialize in and/or treat the following:

  • Disordered eating (weight/food/body focus that ‘s getting in your way)
  • Eating disorders (including mid or later life and males)
  • Relationship problems/couple’s work
  • Anxiety/worry
  • Young adult issues 
  • Mid-life shifts
  • Trauma and distressing life events
  • Matters specific to the Entertainment Industry 
  • Women’s issues 
  • Barriers to self-acceptance/self-compassion 
  • NOTE: When appropriate, if related to your specific therapy goals, and privacy risks are agreed to, getting out of the office and going on a walk/stroll may be an option in session 

AND, if the reason you are considering therapy is not listed above, please feel free to call to discuss.  I work with adults, families, and couples. My private practice is located in Valley Village (“Studio City-adjacent”). The office is in a cottage (homelike setting) with convenient parking.

Feel free to read through this website and get to know me as a therapist/counselor. I know that reaching out for support can feel hard to do. I think it takes courage, and I respect that. “Help can happen, and there is hope.” I look forward to connecting with you! 


Meet Alli…
