My name is Karin Ballard and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) at Synergos Counseling. I received my Master’s in nutrition at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Biology from Washington University in St. Louis. I have been a dietitian for over a decade and have worked with individuals of all ages with a variety of health concerns, including gastrointestinal (GI) conditions, diabetes, sensory feeding difficulties, disordered eating recovery, and food allergies. I am also a Certified Lactation Specialist and have experience working with postpartum nursing moms and infant feeding difficulties.
I have a passion for helping individuals cultivate a positive relationship with food, mind, and body through embracing the principles of Intuitive Eating. People of all ages often struggle with mixed messages about what it means to be “healthy." This can lead to feelings of guilt, frustration, and confusion about food and how to respect and nourish our bodies. Whether you are an individual trying to heal from disordered eating, a parent struggling with how to feed your child, or a person struggling with the symptoms of IBS; I aim to help take each person from a place of confusion to a place of empowerment when it comes to food.
