Our mission at North Sound Nourishment & Recovery is to help children, adolescents, and adults have a positive relationship with food and their bodies.
- To provide compassionate, comprehensive, individualized, and dynamic outpatient treatment for child, adolescent, and adult feeding and eating concerns.
- To provide education and support to prevent feeding, eating, weight, and body image concerns from birth through the lifespan.
- To provide support for families in developing secure attachments during the transition to new parenthood and throughout family life.
Our vision for North Sound Nourishment & Recovery is to provide a setting where positive change can happen.
We specialize in the treatment of all feeding and eating concerns from infancy throughout adulthood. This includes treating and educating our patients, families, and health care providers about the negative effects of restrictive eating, chronic dieting, and eating disorders.
We begin with a comprehensive assessment, which includes medical, growth, and feeding history, and integrate with the client’s story and subjective experience, to put together an individualized treatment plan. Treatment has three components – therapeutic, didactic, and experiential.
Why We’re Unique:

- Focus on prevention as well as treatment of feeding and eating concerns
