Dr. Megan Holt-Hellner has been practicing as a registered dietitian in California since 2003. Additionally, she earned her doctorate in public health, with an emphasis in preventive care, from Loma Linda University. A proud alumna, Dr. Hellner earned a BS in Nutrition, Registered Dietitian’s license and Master’s Degree in public health epidemiology at San Diego State University.
Dr. Hellner spent a number of years working in many eating disorder treatment programs prior to settling into private practice. She now serves as Nutrition and Wellness Coordinator for Potentia Family Therapy, where she helps persons struggling with disordered eating as well as elite athletes (and weekend warriors alike) meet their needs using a non-diet philosophy and ‘food first’ approach. Prior to this, she served as the Team Dietitian for University of San Diego’s Athletic Department, and as a consultant for a number of youth sports programs throughout San Diego County. She also worked as a clinical dietitian for years in the acute care setting. She is driven by a desire to help individuals understand and appreciate the synergistic influences of nutrition, exercise, stress management and other protective lifestyle factors on health using evidence-based practices. She thoroughly enjoys the interdisciplinary approach, as we know that having a strong and collaborative team of licensed professional in place leads to improved treatment outcomes.
Outside of the professional setting, Dr.Hellner’s passions include traveling, swimming, yoga, farmer’s markets, animal welfare, education, live music and spending time with her beautiful puppy, Reba.
