Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian

Melissa Bloom

MS, RD, LD, Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD)

Food is my passion. Likewise, smashing the diet culture is my life’s mission as an Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian. However, we live in a world that promotes disordered eating. Many of us have no idea that we have been exposed to an abundance of misinformation about nutrition and the human body. Certainly, it’s time for that to change. It’s time for all of us to learn how to thrive, despite the toxicity of diet culture that saturates our media and daily conversations.

I am a Texan, born and raised. As a competitive tennis player in my youth, my background includes athletics. I have taught tennis professionally as a USPTA certified coach, and I still enjoy playing. It truly is a lifelong sport!

I obtained my Master’s Degree in Nutrition at Texas Woman’s University and completed my Dietetic Internship there. Then I started my professional career in bariatric surgery and nutrition in the media until I moved into eating disorders at the inpatient and residential setting. As a result, I was recruited to build and direct nutrition treatment at various outpatient settings.

My passion for the outpatient treatment of eating disorders and disordered eating grew, and I have stayed in this type of setting since. My expertise is in working with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, and disordered relationships with food that may not involve eating disorder behaviors. My practice covers individuals and families.
