Pause…take three seconds…
To think about your body
What words come to mind?
Are they kind and tender?
Maybe critical and crude?
Take three more seconds…
Where did these words come from?
Was it many private hours in front of the mirror?
Or perhaps family moments around the dinner table?
Maybe there was no dinner table.
Maybe there was no family.
Press in for three more seconds…
How are these words influencing you today?
Whether we are willing to pause and acknowledge them,
These little words shape and influence us.

The Whole Body Women’s Group was formed out of the belief that these words matter. This is a group for women seeking health and wholeness in deep and integrated ways. Lead by Nutritionist and Restoration Therapist, Beckie Stauffer, this group will sift through the uncovered spaces where culture, story, and image intersect with health, weight, and body. By doing this deep work, we invite women to slow down, look back, and re-story what it means to be wholly well.
8 Weekly Group Sessions
Tuesdays, January 8 - February 26, 2019
6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
Limited to 8 Participants

Come discover what it means to live wholly well.
Limited to 8 women
Group Sessions are $50/session, with payment due in full upon registration. Total cost: $400
Due to the nature of the group, it is important that group members commit to attend all sessions. While we understand life and family emergencies may interfere, your consistency and presence is important for the continuity of the group and to offer dignity and honor to group members. Please review your calendar prior to registration. Thank you!
Whole Body is designed as a therapy group, and while elements may be similar to a support group, small group, or church group, aspects of a participant's journey will be more deeply explored.
Meet The Whole Body Women’s Group Facilitator
Beckie Stauffer, MA, RD, LPCC
Welcome! Let me be the first to say that I am glad your curiosity and courage have brought you this far in your pursuit of counseling. I believe strongly that engaging in counseling is not a matter of weakness or deficiency, but rather a matter of strength and grit, hopefulness and appetite. So, welcome to the table. I am thrilled you are here!
I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in human nutrition and shortly after, became a registered dietitian. After years of working with clients regarding health, body image, self-care, and worth, I decided to seek further training in counseling at Denver Seminary. My work experience in the field of dietetics showed me the critical nature of being altogether healthy- not just physically healthy, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy as well.
So! That is my hope for you. That you would be able to experience whole and holy living. That by participating in the hard work of vulnerability, authenticity, reflection, and adjustment, you might come to know life and have it in abundance. It is my great privilege to partner with you, cheer you on, and encourage you in this life changing pursuit.
