EP.195 – Reclaiming Body Trust w/Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC & Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD

Reclaim, embrace and accept your body in a more authentic, sustainable and nurturing way.

Have you ever felt uncomfortable or not “at home” in your body?

In Reclaiming Body Trust co-authors and the founders of Center for Body Trust, licensed therapist Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and registered dietician Dana Sturtevant, MS, RS invite listeners to break free from the status quo and reject a diet culture that has taken advantage and profited from trauma, stigma, and disembodiment, and fully reclaim and embrace our bodies.

Informed by the personal body stories of the hundreds of people they have worked with, Reclaiming Body Trust delineates an intersectional, social justice-orientated path to healing in three phases: The Rupture, The Reckoning, and The Reclamations.

In Reclaiming Body Trust, Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, LPC shares insights into their innovative and revolutionary Body Trust framework so we can discover a more authentic and sustainable way to occupy and nurture our bodies.

Before Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD envisioned the Center for Body Trust, they worked independently as a therapist and dietitian.

As professionals in the fields of nutrition and mental health, they found most of the recommendations made to clients regarding weight were not only unsustainable but often resulted in harm to their well-being and sense of self.

They were both disillusioned with the status quo approach to food, body, weight and health, which has been harmful for too long.

In 2005, both Hilary and Dana joined forces to re-envision what it meant to occupy and care for your body – and the Center for Body Trust was born.

Dana Sturtevant co-founder of Center for Body Trust is a nutrition therapist, educator, speaker, writer and activist, who advocates for food and body sovereignty.

For More than 15 years, Dana has helped people let go of chronic patterns of dieting and disordered eating and move into a more authentic, sustainable way to occupy and nurture their bodies.

Hilary Kinavey co-founder of Center for Body Trust is a licensed professional counselor, facilitator, educator, and coach.

For more than 20 years Hilary has worked with people to reckon with the vicious cycles of disordered eating and dieting, body shame and weight bias, and the fragmentation, oppression and trauma that often sits at the center.

Today they work to examine the toxic structure in which our construct of health lies, and discover what is possible when people are trusted with their bodies.

Body Trust is scientifically grounded and greatly informed by social justice movements, liberators frameworks, and embodiment theory.
