Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center – located in the First Hill Neighborhood of Seattle, Washington – specializes in Residential treatment for mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders for medically-stable children and adolescents, and adults.

Located on the 5th floor of the Swedish Medical First Hill Nordstrom Tower, we now offer separate Residential programming for children and teens, and adults. Our specialized treatment is designed to fill the gap between weekly outpatient therapy visits and inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.

This residential level of care enables us to more readily meet all patient needs, and help them easily transition between levels of care within our Seattle locations. Our seven-day-per-week Residential Program offers comprehensive, mindfulness-based treatment approaches from compassionate professionals and a psychiatrist-led treatment team.

We partner with our patients, families and referents to provide the skills, tools and support needed to rebuild resilience and guide patients on a path to long-lasting mental wellness.

Life at Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center Seattle - 1229 Madison St

Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center provides specialized treatment for mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders in Seattle for children, adolescents and adults. Accredited by the Joint Commission and led by a nationally recognized team of experts across multiple behavioral healthcare disciplines, Pathlight offers comprehensive, mindfulness-based treatment approaches to support adults and families struggling with serious behavioral health concerns.

As a member of the Eating Recovery Center family of programs, Pathlight’s treatment philosophy acknowledges the importance of assessment, intervention and discharge planning in successfully addressing behavioral health concerns. A fully comprehensive assessment is crucial in identifying co-occurring conditions and developing an individualized treatment plan.

Evidence-based interventions, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Behavioral Activation, and DBT-centered trauma education and protocol, help patients and families alike interrupt maladaptive thoughts and behaviors and live a values-rich life.

Our newly enhanced Transdiagnostic Care Model uses a variety of evidence-based psychotherapies – coupled with specialized trauma and OCD tracks – to provide individualized treatment for the whole person and ensure the optimal environment for engagement, learning and recovery. 

Eating disorder treatment for binge eating disorder, anorexia, bulimia and others is also available through our Eating Recovery Center programming in nearby Bellevue, Washington.
