One-Stop Shop for Mental Health and Physical Exercise

4/5/2021

Durango psychologist Stacy Reuille-Dupont knows that mind and emotions affect physical health, and physical health contributes to emotional well-being. But getting clients to incorporate both was a challenge. That's why she opened Studio B. Sponsored by 2180 Lighting and Design Studio and Serious Texas BBQ

00:00:00,600 --> 00:00:03,340

As both a personal

trainer and psychologist,

2

00:00:03,340 --> 00:00:06,280

Stacy Reuille-Dupont has

heard hundreds of excuses

3

00:00:06,280 --> 00:00:08,480

from clients who failed to follow through

4

00:00:08,480 --> 00:00:12,030

on treatments for their

physical and mental wellbeing.

5

00:00:12,030 --> 00:00:13,220

That's why she created

6

00:00:13,220 --> 00:00:15,760

a different kind of

integrated health clinic

7

00:00:15,760 --> 00:00:19,470

and exercise studio called Studio B.

11

00:00:26,580 --> 00:00:28,440

I'm Wendy Graham Settle.

12

00:00:28,440 --> 00:00:31,150

Tracy Reuille-Dupont knows that mind

13

00:00:31,150 --> 00:00:33,330

and emotions affect our physical health,

14

00:00:33,330 --> 00:00:37,120

and that physical health

affects our mind and emotions.

15

00:00:37,120 --> 00:00:39,030

But as a psychologist,

16

00:00:39,030 --> 00:00:41,650

mental health therapist,

and personal trainer,

17

00:00:41,650 --> 00:00:43,370

she often found that her clients

18

00:00:43,370 --> 00:00:45,850

failed to follow through

on her recommendations

19

00:00:45,850 --> 00:00:48,790

to integrate exercise

into their wellness plans,

20

00:00:48,790 --> 00:00:52,231

because the services were

siloed in different locations.

21

00:00:52,231 --> 00:00:54,600

Clients would lose their motivation

22

00:00:54,600 --> 00:00:57,390

to go to the gym after

they left her office.

23

00:00:57,390 --> 00:01:00,770

That's why she created an

integrated healthcare studio

24

00:01:00,770 --> 00:01:02,716

with a focus on non-medical treatments

25

00:01:02,716 --> 00:01:06,600

to address her clients'

mental and physical needs.

26

00:01:06,600 --> 00:01:09,900

Studio B is a one-stop

clinic that offers programs

27

00:01:09,900 --> 00:01:11,510

in mental health counseling,

28

00:01:11,510 --> 00:01:13,730

an exercise studio onsite,

29

00:01:13,730 --> 00:01:16,310

medical practitioners who

can prescribe medications

30

00:01:16,310 --> 00:01:18,480

when appropriate, nutritionists,

31

00:01:18,480 --> 00:01:21,173

personal trainers, and yoga instructors.

32

00:01:22,300 --> 00:01:25,030

What I found was that without the exposure

33

00:01:25,030 --> 00:01:28,800

to this, people couldn't

see themselves doing both.

34

00:01:28,800 --> 00:01:31,530

And so, when we're

trying to be integrative,

35

00:01:31,530 --> 00:01:36,530

and to capture all that we

can do to help ourselves

36

00:01:36,740 --> 00:01:38,720

be as healthy as possible?

37

00:01:38,720 --> 00:01:40,090

People weren't doing it.

38

00:01:40,090 --> 00:01:42,030

They would show up over

here for one thing.

39

00:01:42,030 --> 00:01:43,730

I would tell them, you know,

40

00:01:43,730 --> 00:01:46,360

hey, I want you to go see

this trainer over here,

41

00:01:46,360 --> 00:01:48,630

maybe at the rec center or whatever.

42

00:01:48,630 --> 00:01:52,003

They might go. But most

likely they didn't.

43

00:01:54,060 --> 00:01:55,950

Psychology is also my second career.

44

00:01:55,950 --> 00:01:56,783

In the first career,

45

00:01:56,783 --> 00:02:00,380

I was health and fitness

management, health club management.

46

00:02:00,380 --> 00:02:03,020

And what I knew from those days

47

00:02:03,020 --> 00:02:04,450

was unless you could get somebody

48

00:02:04,450 --> 00:02:05,970

through the front door,

49

00:02:05,970 --> 00:02:07,483

they often didn't come.

50

00:02:08,450 --> 00:02:11,620

Reuille-Dupont calls her clinic Studio B

51

00:02:11,620 --> 00:02:13,370

because she wants to help clients

52

00:02:13,370 --> 00:02:17,800

be who they need to be to live

a happier, healthier life.

53

00:02:17,800 --> 00:02:19,970

Clinicians and trainers work together

54

00:02:19,970 --> 00:02:22,450

to create individualized plans for clients

55

00:02:22,450 --> 00:02:25,210

to address their

particular wellness goals.

56

00:02:25,210 --> 00:02:26,980

Perhaps you want to lose weight.

57

00:02:26,980 --> 00:02:29,980

At Studio B, you may

work on a nutrition plan

58

00:02:29,980 --> 00:02:31,720

while attending therapy sessions

59

00:02:31,720 --> 00:02:34,030

to identify why you overeat.

60

00:02:34,030 --> 00:02:35,830

An exercise regimen with a trainer

61

00:02:35,830 --> 00:02:38,540

or workout buddy to

reinforce your mental health.

62

00:02:38,540 --> 00:02:42,093

And a meditation plan to

develop spiritual balance.

63

00:02:42,930 --> 00:02:44,700

We're a wellness home.

64

00:02:44,700 --> 00:02:46,790

You come in through one point of contact,

65

00:02:46,790 --> 00:02:48,720

whether you're doing traditional fitness

66

00:02:48,720 --> 00:02:50,880

or traditional behavioral health.

67

00:02:50,880 --> 00:02:52,590

We have both of those.

68

00:02:52,590 --> 00:02:54,640

But then we have all sorts of programs

69

00:02:54,640 --> 00:02:55,920

that cross them over,

70

00:02:55,920 --> 00:02:59,680

so that you can create the life you want,

71

00:02:59,680 --> 00:03:01,330

not just the life you were handed.

72

00:03:01,330 --> 00:03:03,680

So, say you have ADHD.

73

00:03:03,680 --> 00:03:04,530

We know that has to do

74

00:03:04,530 --> 00:03:07,240

with the way your brain

processes information.

75

00:03:07,240 --> 00:03:10,410

But we can use, we have

medical prescribers

76

00:03:10,410 --> 00:03:11,810

who can use medicine,

77

00:03:11,810 --> 00:03:15,260

which is not something to be negated.

78

00:03:15,260 --> 00:03:18,350

And we can also do nutrition for that,

79

00:03:18,350 --> 00:03:20,970

'cause we know nutrition is a huge piece

80

00:03:20,970 --> 00:03:24,160

to our overall health

and our brain health.

81

00:03:24,160 --> 00:03:26,430

And, then we can also use movement,

82

00:03:26,430 --> 00:03:28,880

which is incredibly

important for our health

83

00:03:28,880 --> 00:03:31,500

in many, many ways and our mood.

84

00:03:31,500 --> 00:03:35,670

And so, in learning how

all of those come together

85

00:03:35,670 --> 00:03:39,363

and doing various aspects

of research around it.

86

00:03:40,810 --> 00:03:43,070

Putting them together, it made more sense

87

00:03:43,070 --> 00:03:45,960

to put it all together in one space,

88

00:03:45,960 --> 00:03:47,340

rather than piecemeal it,

89

00:03:47,340 --> 00:03:51,640

or what we do, kind of

a referral-based model.

90

00:03:51,640 --> 00:03:54,670

It became, we need an all-in-one space,

91

00:03:54,670 --> 00:03:57,300

and we need an ability

to bring people together

92

00:03:57,300 --> 00:04:02,300

and expose them to how this

integrative environment works.

93

00:04:03,130 --> 00:04:05,320

Studio B is located in the Purple Cliff's

94

00:04:05,320 --> 00:04:09,350

office building at 1305

Escalante Drive in Durango.

95

00:04:09,350 --> 00:04:12,250
