Our Story

The Intuitive Eating Center of Ohio was born out of a deep passion for helping people find peace with food and their bodies.

Founded by Kristen Murray in 2018, this center is a safe, welcoming space where individuals of all sizes, ages, races, gender identities, and abilities can explore their relationship with food without judgment.

Kristen, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, created the center after years of experience in hospital settings and as a nutrition instructor. She saw firsthand the struggles people faced with dieting and body image and wanted to offer a different path—one that was compassionate, personalized, and free from the pressures of diet culture.

At the Intuitive Eating Center, our focus is on helping clients become confident and happy eaters. Whether you’re dealing with Binge Eating Disorder, chronic dieting, PCOS, or just want a better relationship with food, Kristen and our team are here to support you.

We believe in a flexible, intuitive approach to health that feels right for each individual.

Here, you’ll find a community that understands your journey and celebrates every step you take towards healing and self-acceptance.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Hi, I’m Lindsey!

I'm a fiercely passionate Registered Dietitian, committed to helping folks integrate nutrition as one element of whole-person health and wellness.

I practice from a weight-inclusive, non-diet, and socially just framework providing nutrition therapy for individuals with a wide variety of mental health and/or medical conditions.

I believe strongly in the application of Health At Every Size® (HAES®) and Intuitive Eating principles. This is the foundation of my treatment approach. By helping clients find the intersection between science and everyday life, it is my hope that folks can build trust within themselves, heal their relationships with food and their bodies, and live authentically and meaningfully.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Hi, I’m Julie!

I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, a passionate Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, and Certified Diabetes Educator.

What you can expect in working with me is a supportive and empathetic environment.

By listening to my client’s histories, challenges and experiences, I help them find a peaceful relationship with food, body, movement and self-care. Practicing from a HAES®, weight-inclusive, intuitive eating lens, allows my clients to feel empowered in the process of appreciating and listening to their body’s needs.

I also specialize in helping clients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), in navigating the constant influx of information for intolerance testing and dietary recommendations.

I welcome individuals of all ages, sizes, races, gender identities and abilities.

I’m beyond excited to be a part of the Intuitive Eating Center team, and support your journey in rediscovering your intuitive relationship with food and body, allowing you to begin living your life more fully.

Our Therapists

Mari Ballas MA, LPCC (she/her)

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Hi, I’m Mari!

I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.

My practice utilizes a blend of evidence-based interventions and approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I approach each session from a Health At Every Size® (HAES®) and Intuitive Eating lens and strive to create a safe space for individuals of all sizes, ages, races, gender identities, and abilities. I work in collaboration with each of my clients as we create a tailored plan for therapy that aligns with their treatment goals.

I also find value in what my lived experience with eating disorders can bring to the therapeutic relationship.

This drives my fiery passion for the work I do with my clients every day, as I truly know that recovery is achievable, beautiful, and deserved by all!

I’m so excited and honored to walk alongside you in your journey to heal and build your life worth living.

Hashina Akther MEd LPCC (she/her)

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Hi, I’m Sina!

I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a background in working with various types of eating disorders, disordered eating behaviors, feeding disorders, and body image dissatisfaction.

In my sessions, I utilize a cognitive and dialectical behavioral approach – I believe our thoughts absolutely impact our judgment, emotions, and behaviors. And with dialectics, I help you learn and implement tools and skills to increase self-management, and give you back the control you may feel you’ve lost. The journey is scary and can be intimidating.

I want to help guide you to a place that feels manageable and satisfactory.

My goal is to work with my clients – of all sizes, ages, races, gender identities, and abilities – and help identify a plan or goal that feels realistic and authentic to meet. I follow a Health At Every Size® (HAES®) approach, collaborate with professionals with knowledge in disordered eating and body image, and provide psychoeducation, skills, and resources to improve thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

I’m excited to work with you!
