Rebecca Bitzer, MS, RD, LD, CEDRD
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.
Once I started my private practice, 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. You can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. This includes asking for help, especially if you are in private practice and/or working with clients with eating disorders. Pushing yourself to grow personally and professionally will help you counsel your clients better and also make your counseling much more authentic, powerful and inspirational.
