Our psychiatrists are highly compensated, with salaries likely in the 70th percentile. They are afforded the opportunity to learn the nuances of Eating Disorders care, which is in short supply all across the country, all the while living in either Denver, Sacramento or Seattle, which are all amazing places in their own right. Our psychiatrists have the opportunity to work in a wonderful, collegial environment with virtually no disruption of their personal lives when they leave work. However, above all else, the biggest selling point of working for Eating Recovery Center as a psychiatrist is that the kind of care that we provide is one of the last remaining bastions of treatment where a hospital-based psychiatrist is with a patient long enough to see an improvement in the patient and the true outgrowth of their clinical intervention. The average patient is with us for 30 days as an inpatient, followed by 45 days in the partial hospitalization level of care, and during the course of those 75 days, our psychiatrists get to witness our patients getting better, as they reemerge and light comes back into their eyes– that is truly a wonderful thing and is the basis for why our clinicians are all so happy at Eating Recovery Center – Andrew Braun, COO Emeritus & Accelerated Growth Consultant

Between the Western foothills of the Cascade Mountains and the deep waters of the Puget Sound lies Seattle, a city with skyscrapers and big industries, as well as lush, green landscapes and some of the prettiest suburbs in the country. Although these traits might seem incongruous, this metro area of more than three million pulls it off admirably.
There are more reasons than one why Seattle’s nickname is the Emerald City. In Seattle, residents can watch seagulls circling over commuter filled ferries, or witness the sunset over the forested Olympic range as the nightlife bustle begins along the brightly lit pier.
Recreational opportunities abound at the city’s countless parks and walkways, many of which run right along the waterfront. The active arts and culture scene thrives here as well, and residents enjoy dozens of museums, dance, and
theater venues. The numerous universities, including the highly ranked “U-Dub,” bring fresh ideas to an area already full of the latest in cutting edge technologies.
This city leads the way in biotechnology, telecommunications, multimedia, software, and environmental firms. As a main port to Asia, Seattle has long moved past its roots as a logging town. The city has become a key trade center for goods and is home to some of the country’s most important businesses such as Microsoft, Boeing, and Starbucks.
Despite an active industrial sector, Seattle has few bad air days. As a result, the southern view of Mt. Rainier is often visible. To the East rises a magnificent skyline, shaped by the contrasting and unique architecture of the lively downtown business and shopping areas. Its Pioneer Square Historic District recalls late-19th century commerce with its Richardsonian Romanesque-style buildings made mostly of brick, iron, and stone. Seattle is a charming city from every angle, and is the perfect place to balance work and home.
Seattle boasts high quality childcare and an outstanding education system, as well as wonderful year-round activities for families and children. It’s not surprising that Fortune magazine ranked Seattle the #1 American city for families.
Seattle’s diverse culture means the city celebrates everything from the Scottish Highland Games to the St. Demetrios Greek Festival. Native American heritage is showcased in art museums and public places throughout town. The Seattle Art Museum (known simply as “SAM” to locals), also displays both local and international art. A gallery walk is held monthly at the museum and other downtown galleries, located in the historical Pioneer Square district.
The Seattle Center, built for the 1962 World’s Fair, has evolved into the city’s central venue for arts and entertainment. The center is home to Seattle’s biggest annual festivals, including Bumbershoot and The Bite of Seattle, a local food festival. Every year the Seattle Folk Festival brings the world’s best music and art together under the shadow of the Space Needle. Not far away, the Pacific Science Center, home to many large touring exhibits, is one of the area’s biggest cultural assets. The center serves as an acclaimed children’s science museum where kids can experience a hands-on aquarium and enjoy exhibits on dinosaurs and space.
The Seattle-based Pacific Northwest Ballet Company is one of the top five regional ballet companies in the nation. The company performs six major programs each year. People who love the symphony won’t want to miss the century-old, Grammy-nominated Seattle Symphony in the new Benaroya Hall. The ballet company and the Seattle Opera House are both housed in spacious McCaw Hall. The city also hosts the century-old Seattle Symphony. Attractive historic districts—Pike Place Market and the Mariners Safeco Field—add to the overall cultural appeal of the area.
Considerably mild for its latitude, Seattle is known for its moderate climate, relatively cool summers, and calm winters. While there are certainly four seasons here, the change between them is mild. The rare snowfall turns the city into a winter wonderland, but melts quickly away. The waters of the Puget Sound moderate Seattle winters enough to allow only 15 inches of snow annually. Nevertheless, snow is only an hour away on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains.
Despite the mythology, the majority of Seattle summer days are quite sunny. Winter and fall rains are light and, in fact, Seattle actually gets less rain annually than New York, Boston, Washington D.C., or Philadelphia. In addition, the famous northwest wet season doesn’t start until late October. As a result, Seattle boasts beautifully sunny Augusts and Septembers, perfect times to plan everything from barbecues to fun in the park or even outdoor weddings. Seattle’s renowned rain festival, appropriately named “Bumbershoot,” is an almost guaranteed warm and dry event.
Few cities can claim Seattle’s abundant recreational opportunities. Even within the city, Seattle residents enjoy every imaginable activity, from boating to rock climbing. Greenlake, in the north part of town, is a favorite for running, biking, or gliding around the lake in a rowboat. Afterward swing over to Gas Works Park, one of the few industrial reclamation parks in the world. The park has received worldwide recognition and is a favorite site for picnicking, barbecues, and even sledding on those rare, snowy Seattle days.
Sailing connoisseurs will love the popular course around the West Seattle peninsula, where one can wave at the sun bathers on Alki Beach, then head out to the many Puget Sound Islands. Seattle is a boater’s paradise, with more than 13,000 private craft docked here. A “kayaker’s dream,” this area is great for water lovers of all sorts, and an orca whale population. It’s no wonder that Coastal Living magazine voted Seattle as having one of America’s “16 amazing coastal communities.”
Seattle isn’t just a place for marine recreation. There are well over 100 public golf courses in the larger Puget Sound area, many of them world-class. The city is also bike friendly. There are dozens of paths around the city designated for bicycles, and many streets have wide bike lanes for safer riding. Those who are adventurous will want to try the REI indoor climbing facility, located right in the middle of the city.
Hundreds of hiking and mountain bike trails crisscross the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, and plenty of downhill
and cross-country skiing terrain extends for miles past the city. In the summertime, take a trip north for some breathtaking Orca whale-watching around the local San Juan Islands, or enjoy the many water sports that the area offers, including, water-skiing, kayaking, and rowing.
Seattle is a great place for spectator sports as well. The WNBA Seattle Storm make their home base here, and sports
fans are excited about the many triumphs of the Sonics and Mariners, both division champions. New stadiums were
built in recent years for both baseball and football. Along with the newly remodeled Key Basketball Arena, these have made Seattle the home of the best sports stadiums in the world.
