Bonus Episode: Poet and The Appetite Host Carter Umhau on Healing Through The Creative Process

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast

In this special bonus episode, our very own host, Carter Umhau, LMHCA, shares her work as a poet, reading five works from her collection. Her writing touches on themes of friendship, birth and grief, being around the table with memorable food, the loss of an old version of life, and passionately enjoying one’s self. Opal Co-Founders Lexi Giblin, PhD, CEDS and Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS join the conversation, interviewing Carter about her creative process, why writing is healing, and how the arts fit into therapy. This episode is in honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
