Courage to Nourish is an outpatient eating disorder specialized nutrition practice that provides weight inclusive nutrition counseling to individuals and families. The practice was founded by Alex Raymond (she/hers) and Bobbi Boteler (she/hers) who are both eating disorder dietitians that have dedicated their careers to supporting and advocating for those in recovery from an eating disorder. Based on both research and experience within the eating disorder space, Courage to Nourish firmly aligns with Health at Every Size (c) and intuitive eating nutrition counseling. We value creating meaningful connections with our clients, as well as gentle guidance, to establish a safe space to navigate recovery and challenge eating disorder thoughts and behaviors. We have three in person locations in College Park, Maryland, Columbia, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia. We are also licensed to provide virtual nutrition counseling in Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, DC, Pennsylvania, California and Florida.

The University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work is the place for people of purpose — diverse, creative educators, scholars and social workers who advance social justice through courageous ideas and action. Our work is guided by evidence, driven by our community and inspired by Colorado’s spirit of discovery, innovation and openness.

In 2005, Hilary Kinavey, MS, LPC and Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD co-founded the Center for Body Trust to offer programs that encourage movement toward a compassionate, weight-inclusive model of radical care to address body oppression, heal body shame and associated patterns of chronic dieting and disordered eating. The Center for Body Trust also offers training for helping professionals and educators interested in adopting client-centered, trauma-informed, justice-based approaches to healing—including an intensive year-long Body Trust Certification Program. Hilary and Dana’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Scientific American, Health, Self, Real Simple, Huffington Post, and on the TEDx stage. Their book Reclaiming Body Trust: A Path to Healing and Liberation was released in August 2022. Learn more at CenterForBodyTrust.com. We would like to thank Center for Body Trust for their continued support of the WSC.
