ABOUT RAMEY NUTRITION
Located in Seattle’s University District, with a new location available in Shoreline, Ramey Nutrition is a nutrition clinic offering individual and group nutrition counseling, support groups, yoga, and fitness. We take a patient-centered approach by listening to patient needs, providing nutritional and emotional support and individualizing treatment for our patients. Our methodology is unique in that we focus less on the food and more on the issues that become barriers to creating positive and healthy food and body image changes in our patient’s life.
While our current patient services primarily consist of Eating Disorders Recovery, Diabetes Management, and Weight-Management, it is our desire and goal to build a strong enough team to assist patients with any nutrition-related issue. The Eating Disorder Specialist Dietitian (EDSD) at Ramey Nutrition will play a vital role in working with individuals recovering from an eating disorder by providing compassionate, genuine, honest, and unwavering support to promote a full and life-long recovery.
