She is recognized as a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian and Supervisor (CEDRD-S) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (www.iaedp.com) for her expertise in treating eating disorders and training other professionals in the treatment of eating disorders. She is also a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor (www.intuitiveeating.org). She treats clients along the Seattle/Bellevue to Bellingham corridor and all surrounding areas. She also provides treatment via Skype or other virtual platforms for clients living nationally and internationally.

Art and Science of Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy

Diane worked for over five years at Remuda Ranch, an internationally renowned inpatient treatment facility for eating disorders. At Remuda, she worked with a critically ill population as they fought for freedom from the grips of anorexia and bulimia. Diane additionally served as Remuda's Clinical Nutrition Manager, providing caseload oversight, supervision, and training on the art and science of eating disorder nutrition therapy. She also worked at a residential and partial level of care facility before transitioning to private practice.

With a passion for educating the lay population and professionals on the awareness, prevention, and treatment of eating disorders, Diane has presented at local and national conferences, schools and universities, clinics, and church groups. She is known by others as living the very philosophies she preaches.

Beyond Treating Eating Disorders

Outside of her nutrition practice, Diane enjoys traveling the world, loving on her niece and five nephews, hiking, eating delicious food, beach combing at low tide, cooking at a local women's shelter, playing & watching soccer, trying new recipes, chatting with friends in cozy coffee shops, skiing, and snowshoeing.

She has lived in Germany twice and highly values the European art of being and investing in relationships, as well as creating and celebrating delicious food.

Simone, Eating Disorders Dietitian - Seattle & Everett Offices

Simone Pierson, RDN, CD is a nationally registered and state certified dietitian specializing in treating people with eating disorders and disordered eating at many phases of recovery.

Simone Pierson

Simone received extensive specialized education on nutrition therapy for eating disorders and the Health at Every Size® philosophy early on in her education with the guidance of Karin Kratina, PhD, RD. She continued to follow her passion for understanding alternative approaches to nutrition counseling in her Dietetic Internship at the University of Houston and in her role as Primary Dietitian at Seattle's locally-owned treatment center, Opal: Food+Body Wisdom. She continues to seek out current research and has been fortunate to receive specialized trainings for a variety of dual-diagnoses and special populations.

Working full-time with clients in the PHP, IOP, and Outpatient levels of care, Simone was able to gain a deep understanding of the spectrum of eating disorders and appropriate treatments for each point along the way. She provided individualized care, eating with clients each day and creating programs to enhance the recovery experience such as a gardening program and attuned eating practice meals. She also enjoyed leading the Health at Every Size® Outpatient group and having opportunities to teach University groups about eating disorders and Health at Every Size® philosophies.

Simone approaches each client uniquely and brings creativity and compassion to each session. She aims to uplift clients so that they may live their lives more fully, with less shame and fear in their relationship with food.

In addition to nutrition counseling sessions, Simone's confidence in the kitchen allows her to support clients as they rediscover the joy of cooking and being in their kitchens, free from stigma and fear. Simone brings a unique gift to Hope Nutrition Therapy clients in the form of experiential culinary sessions where they can set up their home kitchens, practice cooking skills, or take risks with food in order to build trust and a sense of safety in their ability to feed themselves.

Beyond Treating Eating Disorders

Outside of her nutrition practice, Simone enjoys her side jobs as a letterpress printer and pantry chef in a local restaurant. She also devotes much of her free to time to arts organizing, primarily in the realm of electronic music shows and literary and book arts events. She is constantly looking to learn new skills in book binding and printmaking and frequently takes art classes in order to do so.

Patmon, Therapy Dog - Everett office with Diane

Patmon, Therapy Dog

Patmon is a golden retriever therapy dog who graduated in May 2017 from Bergin University of Canine Studies and has brought joy and comfort to Diane’s practice ever since. He is trained in mobility and PTSD, and therefore has the unique gift of tracking the emotions of others. With his tender and perceptive heart, he seeks to be with clients in whatever way they feel most supported by his presence. This could include lying across their laps, sleeping on their feet, giving an occasional kiss or receiving a hug, or just observing and expressing care from his crate through his big, loving brown eyes for those who prefer space. He can bring smiles by showing off his party tricks, including turning on and off lights, taking off socks, and retrieving Diane’s cell phone. He loves to incessantly play ball when he is off the clock, switching to his glow in the dark ball when the sun goes down.
