A Radical Approach
This is who we are.
Before we envisioned the Center for Body Trust, we worked independently as a therapist and dietitian.
Recognizing unethical practices
As professionals in the fields of nutrition and mental health, we 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.
We were both disillusioned with the status quo approach to food, body, weight and health, which has been harmful for too long.
Championing a paradigm shift
In 2005, we joined forces to re-envision what it meant to occupy and care for your body—and the Center for Body Trust was born.
Today, we 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.
