Rebecca DeHamer is a registered dietitian, nutritionist in the fields of nutrition, athletics, and movement therapy. Her background started in dance and education, quickly moving into adolescent physical education and athletics. Her graduate work focused on nutrition science, while continuing with teaching and work in health and wellness education. Before finishing graduate school she trained as a board certified personal trainer and utilized this within public health nutrition. After completion of the UCSD Medical School's Dietetic Internship, she accepted a position working in their Eating Disorders Program for Treatment and Research. 

 

Over the years she moved from adult eating disorders, focusing on Dialectical and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (DBT, CBT) skills, into adolescent eating disorders, with her focus and specialty in modified-Family Based Treatment (FBT). She is an expert-level adolescent and young adult, eating disorders, and sports dietitian working in the field daily with high acuity cases at the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient level of care. 

 

Established in 2018, DeHamer Dietetics exists to support those at lower levels of care, and within the collegiate and professional sports community to reach their life-worth-living goals and face their individual struggles with food, body, and movement concerns.  Our further hopes and efforts are to offer broad preventative care methods, informative resources, and a needed connection to eating disorders and sports, intuitive eating and body neutrality topics offered through dual lenses of scientific evidence and the psychology of the human experience.
