Kathleen Tabb MS, RDN, LDN, CLTRegistered Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified LEAP Therapist
Hi, I’m Kathleen Tabb! I am a functional medicine focused, registered dietitian that specializes in digestive and autoimmune conditions. I see clients in Rockville, Greenbelt and Columbia, Maryland and virtually across the USA.
My personal history with IBS and food sensitivities inspired me to support and educate clients that face similar challenges. I understand the impact that digestive conditions have on quality of life, whether that be socially, nutritionally, and/or emotionally. My insight into these realities motivated me to want to do more for my clients .
I firmly believe in the connection of all bodily systems (with the digestive tract at the core) and how this is essential to overall health and well-being. I can help you reduce uncomfortable GI symptoms, and find foods that help you feel your best.
I take a personalized approach to my clients, and strive to see them as an interconnected whole instead of a diagnosis.
I will work to understand the root cause of your ailments, and from there suggest diet changes, testing and supplements, if needed. I work to meet you where you’re at in order to gain control of your symptoms. There will never be a shortage of support and empathy!
Food can be medicine and what we eat has a huge impact on how we feel! I hope to help you overcome fear of foods that have caused such unpleasant reactions and bring back normalcy to your life.
