About Opal

Opal is whole-heartedly committed to freeing people from diet culture by offering eating disorder treatment in for food, body and exercise concerns.


Opal provides eating disorder treatment in Seattle for adults of all genders ages 18+. We offer partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and traditional outpatient programming. 

Our Space

Conveniently located in the University District of Seattle, WA. Opal has taken great care to infuse the space with serenity, warmth and freshness. In addition to our clinic, we also have an apartment available to clients.

Recovery Starts Now

 In the journey of recovery, we will move clients towards a trust based relationship with their body, emotions, and food, eventually helping them to live in attunement to their body’s own wisdom.

"We learned to reshape our minds and lives, not our bodies, in the face of tremendous pressure to do just the opposite."
-Ariana, Founding Member of The Fat Underground

Who We Are Now

Opal is about more than eating disorder recovery. We are about liberation. That is, we are about liberation from the diet culture born out of systems of oppression. We are working to center the most oppressed as we know that until the most marginalized are healed, no one can be fully healed. We are willing to be uncomfortable and messy in this work. Owned by 3 white women, our whiteness will get in the way and we are committed to dismantling the systems of oppression within our own hearts, minds and actions.

What sets us apart

We value the way the body works and will encourage all clients to trust oneself and their body’s wisdom, regardless of one’s size or shape.

In October 2015 Opal was the first eating disorder treatment program in the United States to offer Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programming.

As a unique component of our treatment, the Exercise + Sport program aims to increase clients’ freedom regarding movement, exercise, and athletics.
