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

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.
