Local psychologist to address MS support group
March 4, 2014
Clinical psychologist Dr. Maria Elena Lara will be the guest speaker at the March 12 meeting of the Multiple Sclerosis Support Group.
Lara will discuss how people living with degenerative neurological diseases can still lead full, rewarding lives at the 9:30 a.m. meeting at Swedish/Issaquah, 751 N.E. Blakely Drive.
It’s a philosophy that will likely resonate with the support group members that have nicknamed themselves the “No Whiners.”
Lara, a New York trained therapist, has been practicing in the Issaquah community for more than 10 years.
The support group meets the second Wednesday every month in the second floor conference center at the hospital. The meetings are free and open to anybody who suffers from a neurological disorder.
