Dr. Mehri Moore

Medical Director and Founder | MD, Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist

Mehri Moore, MD brings over 35 years of work with women and girls to her leadership at THIRA Health. Her vision for THIRA was born out of a desire to address the core issues that women face, rather than simply working through symptomatic challenges. While symptoms of anxiety and depression can be extremely damaging (eating disorders being a leading symptom), her mission is to find sustainable recoveries that allow each patient to overcome symptoms and root causes. THIRA’s programs reflect this mission in their comprehensive, unique approaches that incorporate a variety of methods, including yoga, art and movement therapy, and much more.

Dr. Moore’s Background

In 1991, Dr. Moore founded The Moore Center (now Eating Recovery Center of Washington), the longest-established treatment center specializing in eating disorder treatment in the Pacific Northwest. In her many years of clinical experience she has worked with patients dealing with a wide variety of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, among others. She is THIRA Health’s Founder and Medical Director and has many years’ experience working with a broad spectrum of clients.

Dr. Moore is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist. She trained as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, an affiliate of the Childrens’ Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. She completed her residency in General Psychiatry at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. She received her medical training at the University of Tehran, Iran.

Dr. Moore is also a Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. She has presented lectures, trainings, and in-service education seminars to a wide variety of professional and parent groups. She is a licensed Physician in the State of Washington. For her work at The Moore Center, she was honored as a 2014 Semi-Finalist in Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year awards. She is a member of the Academy For Eating Disorders and the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals.

Dr. Kathryn Korslund

Clinical Director  | PhD, Psychotherapist

After receiving her PhD from the Medical College of Pennsylvania at Hahnemann University, Dr. Korslund completed a postdoctoral fellowship under the direction of Dr. Linehan herself in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington (UW). In 2003, Dr. Korslund became a research scientist at UW’s Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics (BRTC) and worked alongside Dr. Linehan on several NIH-funded research studies centered on further developing and evaluating DBT.

During her 16 years as a researcher and clinician at UW, Dr. Korslund functioned as a critical partner in the development of the BRTC’s DBT Training Program for graduate students and other mental healthcare professionals – a program which was recognized by the NIMH in 2008 as a “Center for Excellence” – and, perhaps most impressively, co-developed the DBT Adherence Coding Scale. In the early days of DBT, Dr. Linehan created a set of metrics by which to assess DBT treatment adherence that worked satisfactorily in her own research setting, but it wasn’t until the development of the DBT Adherence Coding Scale that researchers world-wide had a psychometrically-robust-enough protocol to apply in clinical research. In 2010, Dr. Korslund became the Associate Director of the BRTC and is now the Immediate Past President of the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification.
