New & Exciting Things Going on Around the Practice.
Studio B is an integrative health clinic and expansion of my psychology practice. We have brought in a variety of health professionals and blended our space to incorporate physical and mental health side by side.
The goal of Studio B is to “B” what you need to live a life of contentment and peace, excitement and energy. We realize that enhancing the lives we lead is work. Sometimes hard work. And we also subscribe to the belief that this process can have fun, laughter, and the joy of understanding oneself built right into the work. By integrating body, balance, and behavior therapies, the professionals at Studio B have a common mission of Being right alongside you on your journey as you Create. Your. Self.
Check it out. We worked very hard to capture our joy for our work serving you. www.StudioB.Life
What I do …
I blend psychology with physical exercises for whole-person healing and utilize non-medical (Somatic, Behavioral, Cognitive, Social) approaches to mental and physical health issues. My goal for you is to feel more grounded, empowered and inspired to live your life motivated and balanced everyday.
Often, people are looking to make a change, need help adhering to a new, healthier behavior, want a physical program to compliment mental health treatment, or are looking to take their fitness performance to the next level. Wellness coaching can make the difference.
Personal Development and Growth Strategies
Where do you want to go? Through analysis of your current behaviors, we can incorporate changes that support the life you want to lead, not the one you were handed. To do this, we set concrete goals, develop strategies to reach those goals and establish timelines to track your progress.
Why I do what I do …
My mission is to help you see the beauty that lies within. I want you to be inspired everyday. I work to help you find balance in your daily life, allowing you to become the best version of yourself.
By healing past wounds we embrace the core of who we are and who we want to be. Using a variety of modalities, I work to inspire you on your personal journey. This work allows you to take control of your life, empowering you to be fearless as you embrace your path. No matter what you are dealing with, there is always an option – out or around it.
Next steps …
Contact me today and take the first step toward health, wellness, healing old wounds, and becoming the best you can be.

My philosophy …
To inspire, motivate, and help you become balanced and brave.
I view my role as your guide. You have the map to your life’s path and my job is to help you read that map. Humans are pack creatures and our brains are wired for connection. As a result, when you have someone you trust to help you think through ideas, concepts and possible life directions, you make better decisions.
I want to inspire and motivate you to change your life … not the life you were handed, the one you want.
To find everyday inspiration, we must be balanced. We require a balance of work and play, time alone, social connection, activity and rest. Together, we examine your life balance and make adjustments for optimum well-being.
I have experience working with all age groups from children through adults, including couples and families. I aim to create individualized programs that include exercise, diet and effective coping skills to address a variety of mental health concerns.
My research interests include how the endocrine system, heart rate variability, ATP, musculature, skeletal system, and the microbiome are impacted by both psychological stress and physical exercise and how physical activity may work to address both mental and physical symptoms for comprehensive health.
Many who suffer from psychological stressors also suffer from coexisting health disorders like obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes management. I seek to find non-medical answers to treat this co-morbidities.

In The Press: What People Are Saying About Stacy and Studio B
Wondering how the professionals at Studio B are different than others in the industry? We are committed to collaborating across our disciplines to help you optimize your life. Not by trying to fix something that’s broken … because you aren’t broken. We work to incorporate what’s great about you whether it came from hard times, easy times, or random genetic code into who you want to be and evolve it. Deb, Tracy, Wendy, and the rest of the crew at Local News Durango did an awesome job helping us tell our story.
Studio B: A Place to “B”
Coworking, or flexspace, is all the rage in the era of remote work. After all, what better way to build professional relationships than by sharing a workspace?
But, what if there was a flexspace designed specifically for coaches and therapists? And, what if that coworking space had a full team who could provide mental and physical health services? To make it even better, what if it had a full time administrative assistant who managed all referrals, appointments, insurance, and billing?
The more Stacy Reuille-Dupont thought about this idea, the more she wanted to make it a reality. Sure, it was something that had never been done before—at least not in Durango. But why should that stop her? After all, she was a professional psychologist with her own private practice. Her background in exercise management and physical fitness had opened her eyes to the power of integrative care. She had seen excellent results from combining nutrition, massage, acupuncture, and behavioral health, and she wanted to be able to provide all of these services under one umbrella. …
Studio B: Fit body, fit mind.New business integrates fitness and nutrition with psychological health
For Stacy Reuille-Dupont, Studio B is the culmination of a career that began in exercise physiology and later branched into psychology as she became fascinated with how her clients’ physical health affected their behavior and their mental health.
Ultimately, the goal for clients at Studio B is peak wellness.
Reuille-Dupont is convinced – from her background beginning work as a personal trainer focusing on fitness and later in her career working with patients as a clinical and somatic psychologist – that the interplay of fitness, nutrition and psychological well-being are key not only to overcoming addictions, destructive behaviors and mental illness but to achieving wellness.
Studio B integrates a clinical psychological approach to deal with mental health along with a fitness clinic, giving it a hybrid feel of both a psychologist’s office and a fitness studio. …
Stacy Reuille-Dupont was a guest on the Chamber Chat Radio, where she and Jack Llewllyn got together to discuss how our psychological health impacts our physical health and vice versa. I’ve known Jack a long time, back to my days as the Fitness Director at the SunUte Community Center in Ignacio, CO and his days at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO. We had a great time reminiscing and talking about how much more we now know about health from the inside out – Listen to Part 1 Here. Part 2 is Coming Stay Tuned.
How The Professionals At Studio B Help
We help people who are interested in optimizing their lives to become as healthy and balanced as
possible. Our clients are
interested in exploring aspects of themselves, not to find what is wrong, but to look at what is. They find the gifts of past experience, accept it as part of who they are now, and turn it into a strength to
Please request an appointment or fill out the form below and I will get back to you at my earliest opportunity. I work to respond to messages within two business days, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Please note: I check and respond to my business phone, text messages, secure messages via the portal, and email during office hours. My availability to respond to messages during office hours is dependant on my scheduled appointments and is not an instant messaging system. I do not check my work email, text, secure message portal, or business phone on weekends, evenings and cannot do therapy over regular email as it is not HIPPA compliant.
As noted above, I work to respond to all messages during office hours and within 2 business days. As a result of my in-session schedule, I may not be able to respond quickly to your messages. If you are having a mental health emergency/crisis, please call 911 or your local crisis line (Durango/La Plata County, CO: 970-247-5245) for immediate assistance and support.
*I work to respond to messages within 2 business days, if you have not heard back from me, please reach out again. Something may have gone wrong with the original message delivery, and I may not have gotten it.
Therapy sessions come in all different sizes. Traditional therapy begins with an intake appointment. This is typically a 90-minute session, but may be shorter or longer, and gives us the foundation for the treatment process to follow. Individual therapy sessions can be done in person or online. These sessions are typically 50 minutes long.
Sliding fee scales are available and most insurances are accepted. Please contact your insurance carrier(s) prior to our first appointment to determine if I am covered as an in-network or out-of-network provider in your plan and your co-pay responsibly. Co-pays are due at the time of the appointment.
After completing an intake appointment, rates for therapy services range from $75-$225. Hourly rates begin at $150.00/50 minute session. I also offer shorter sessions for those interested in a 30 ($75) or 45 ($112.50) minute session. 90 ($225) minute sessions are also available if you would like a longer session. I am willing to negotiate my hourly rate based on circumstances and the situation at hand. Please contact me to discuss your current situation and need.
“Checking In” Sessions
Once we get started on your path, you may find you need a “check-in” to stay on track with your goals. These shorter sessions range from 10-30 minutes in length and I offer these in person, online, email, phone, and via text messaging for focused feedback.
At your intake, we will discuss “check-in” options, timing, pricing, and confidentiality concerns.
These sessions are not typically covered by insurance and begin $25.00 for a 10-minute check-in. Please contact me for more information if you would like to participate in “check-in” sessions.
In addition to traditional psychology services, I also offer fitness and wellness coaching. These sessions may look like therapy or personal training depending on the needs and goals of the client.
Other services, such as psychological assessments, reports, legal proceedings, case consultation with outside parties, etc., need to be discussed prior to working together. Fees are determined by the situation at hand and estimated time commitment.
Professional Consultation and Supervision
I provide case consultation and clinical supervision opportunities to providers looking to work through a case, enhance their therapy practice, or obtain licensure. My master’s degree work was in cognitive and behavioral therapies, and my Ph.D. focused on somatic psychology in addition to clinical psychology client presentations and psychological testing. These sessions are available in personal or online video.

For many, booking the first appointment is the hardest. If you are ready to get started, you have three options to choose from:
1) I offer a free 15-minute meet and greet. This session is designed for you to “interview” me about my therapeutic approach and background. During this time I may ask you about your treatment needs and goals, however, this brief session is not a therapy session. We can meet over the phone, Skype, or in person.
2) If you feel you are ready to start therapy, give me a call to discuss availability.
Typically this is a 60-minute appointment, however, it may be scheduled for a different length depending on your needs. In this session, we will review your treatment needs, goals and personal history. This will help you make sure you get appointments when it best fits your schedule and time lines for your treatment.
In the event you would like to get started before I have a new client opening, I have provided a list of resources and a therapist referral list to help you get the treatment you need.
3) Looking for health and wellness coaching? We can start with a 15 minute meet and greet or an hour assessment appointment. Assessments help us find your baseline starting point so we can accurately program your wellness goals. We can meet over the phone, in person, or via Skype. These sessions are typically not covered by insurance.
The online scheduling calendar and messaging system is provided via a HIPPA secure website. Current clients can create a client profile, request appointments, and cancel or change appointment times. Then, I will be able to review your request and approve or offer an alternative to the requested appointment times. Reminders are sent via email and text messaging.
