Founder of Rebecca Bitzer and Associates: A Dietitian for Every Condition
How did you get started in your career?
I have always been drawn to food, nutrition, and psychology. I also wanted to help people so a Registered Dietitian seemed like a natural fit for me.
Like many dietitians, I started working at a hospital, then worked for the government and lastly started a private practice.
Once I started my private practice, I loved spending time doing one-on-one medical nutrition therapy. Soon, I learned that I had a natural gift as a counselor which inspired me to become a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian.
Over time, I hired other dietitians and realized that it was essential for me to develop strong business skills. Subsequently, I have learned that many Registered Dietitians are in need of such skills, so I help others who want to start and/or expand their own practices.
I love to inspire and empower professionals to think big and dream big. To find out more about my business coaching services, take a look at our website and contact us for a complimentary 15-minute phone call to see if we are a good fit to help you meet your business goals.

I have co-authored a book for Registered Dietitians in private practice to help build and expand their business. The book is titled Welcome to the Rebelution Seven Steps to the Nutrition Counseling Practice of Your Dreams.
What advice would you give to someone new to the field?
Learn and practice extraordinary self care. Practicing self-care requires commitment and intention. Make sure that you schedule some daily self care to help you bring your best self to work and that you have energy to take to your personal life.
Self care also includes asking for help, especially if you are in private practice and/or working with clients with eating disorders. Make sure that you put key people in place in your life to help you grow personally and professionally. Doing this will help prevent you from burning out. It will help you counsel your clients better and also make your counseling much more authentic, powerful and inspirational.
