The diet industry is a $72 billion industry. Our culture obsesses over weight loss and idolizes thinness, often equating it to health. Health At Every Size ® is a modern approach that challenges these ideals and offers an inclusive approach to healthcare treatment. This webinar will explore how diet culture has influenced the way society thinks about health and self-image, and how the Health At Every Size movement is dismantling those ideals to shift beauty standards and create equal access to healthcare for bodies of all shapes and sizes.
Kate Jarvi, LPC, joined Rock Recovery as the body image therapist back in 2019. Kate is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) specializing in both individual and group therapy with adults and teens with eating disorders. Kate is trained in providing dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), radically open dialectical behavior therapy (RO DBT), intuitive eating principles and body acceptance skills — which she implements regularly in her practice.
Kristyn Soto, MS, came on as Rock Recovery’s second full-time staff hire in October of 2017. Having obtained her Master's in Applied Developmental Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, Kristyn uses her skills to connect individuals and families to life-saving treatment through Rock's clinical programs and support groups, and works to educate the community to eradicate stigma around mental health and provide them with tools to care for their own mental health and wellbeing. She has worked closely alongside Rock’s Executive Director to help Rock Recovery grow from a one-program organization to a community cornerstone in the Greater DC region.
Christie Dondero-Bettwy is the Executive Director of Rock Recovery, a DC Metro area-based nonprofit that supports the journey to freedom from disordered eating through affordable clinical recovery and community empowerment programs.
