Hello and welcome to SFAR - I am a mental health clinician. I have a practice in Everett, Stanwood & Arlington Washington for the past 20 years. My practice is called Westwinds Behavioral Health. It is professionally recognized for offering psychological services.


     It has been decades since I fell in love with alpacas. Arnold Palmer was a hero of mine as a teen and he wore alpaca sweaters which became known as golf sweaters. Ever since then I have wanted to have something to do with these animals and this  industry. So 16 years ago I visited an alpaca event in the Seattle area. I also visited a local alpaca ranch, and attended some seminars and shows. I then decided to buy alpacas and the rest is history.

     So in 2006 the decision was made and the first alpacas were purchased. Brown Sugar was the name of our first alpaca purchased. She from a local alpaca ranch.  She is a stunning show stopper, a Blue Ribbon winner with Color Championships under her fleece. It was so easy to fall in love with Brown Sugar’s loving disposition and her award winning attributes - density -conformation – strength – fineness.


So I was in.  Love to be of help – if you have any questions or just want to say hello, you can reach us at:
