Melrose Heals: A conversation about eating disorders

A podcast designed to explore, discuss and understand eating disorders

Eating disorders can thrive in secrecy and shame. But by having honest conversations about eating disorders and mental health, it’s possible to create opportunities for healing. That’s why we’ve created the Melrose Heals podcast.

During each episode, Karen L. Nelson, a licensed clinical psychologist at Melrose Center, hosts discussions about the topics important to people and families impacted by eating disorders. We hope you’ll listen and start healing.

There are so many messages about food in our culture that can create conflicted emotions about eating and nourishment. Oftentimes it impacts not only how we eat, but also how we feel about ourselves and our bodies. On today's episode, Dr. Karen Nelson is joined by George Elliott, a registered dietitian here at Melrose Center. Together they will discuss intuitive eating, a helpful tool that can support both eating disorder recovery and a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Karen Nelson is joined by Patti Witt, a licensed marriage and family therapist here at Melrose Center. Karen and Patti will talk about depression and anxiety – and the impact they can have on eating disorders and eating disorder recovery.
