Let’s Get Started!
After a few months working with Stephanie I feel re-energized and hopeful.A.F.
Stephanie has helped me to find creative ways to re-direct my own life. I find that she is very intuitive and compassionate.M.R
You were compassionate, but what i enjoyed was also when necessary and when you felt that i was ready, you went deeper and cut through some bullshit along the way.D.C.
Perhaps most of all, I am thankful that you were fully there with me, that your gentle presence guided me to the gentle softening in me.D.C.
Stephanie has a remarkable ability to listen deeply. She is not afraid to go to the depth of issues brought up in sessions. She holds the space with warmth and acceptance.Silas Rosenblatt, R.Ac. (Colleague)
Working with Stephanie, I have been able to discover a whole world of possibility to heal inside of myself.N.R.
In my first session with Stephanie I knew that I was in a safe and compassionate place. Stephanie’s mind-body approaches were extremely helpful and allowed me to heal some dark places.A.S.
Stephanie’s approach was very inclusionary, I was the main player in helping myself with her role to facilitate and guide the process. I highly recommend Stephanie for those times in your life when you need that helping hand.V.R
I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie to help with my grief from losing a parent. What I really appreciated about Stephanie was her ability to help me connect my mind, body and spirit to help me through the grief process.V.R.

Something I really appreciate about Stephanie is that she deeply values her clients and the therapeutic relationship. I hope you enjoy working with Stephanie as much as I did!Marita Poll, RCC. (Supervisor)
Because our work is based in ‘felt sense’ and imagery, I can take the work home and out into the world to help me strengthen my self awareness as well as work though difficult times.S.D
Working with you has been an enormously valuable experience. You encouraged me to express myself in ways that were quite different from my regular talking and thinking modes and that started a new way of engaging with my emotions and my body, while making me feel totally safe.M.C.
It is very nice to work with someone that truly cares.R.L.
Stephanie has taken me from a place of darkness and hopelessness to a place where I can finally see a shimmer of light, and she has been so amazing and caring.M.P.
Stephanie is helping me develop the tools I need to help me through rough patches and ability to recognize patterns in myself that are holding me back in my life and my relationship(s).N.P.
Stephanie is both highly skilled and compassionate as a clinical counsellor. Her commitment to her clients’ well-being clearly stands out. I consider her a trustworthy and valued colleague.Mark Nixon, RCC (Colleague)
Thanks again for everything. Our sessions are helping me so much. Everyday I feel stronger.Unsolicited client email

Since I moved to Ontario, when I tell people about the kind of therapy I particularly like to do (i.e. mindfulness and body-based) people seem interested. But they often say something like “huh?” or “my aunt does meditation too” or … Continue reading
Ooh, I had an uncomfortable “I’ve gotta get it out” inner itch today. Do you get that, when you know something is bubbling up inside, but you don’t quite know what it is or what it has in store for … Continue reading
Throughout the day yesterday I felt a gnawing anxiety in my body. Mostly it sat in my chest as agitated tight heaviness. Like the too-much-caffeine feeling, but with stuckness and panic thrown in. I was aware of the Ick through … Continue reading
Navigating change can be tricky. Left-brain logic. Right brain intuition. Longings. Dreams. The sensitive balance of Effort vs Allowing. Pesky impatience. The mental fog of over-thinking. Recently my husband and I made a big decision about where to move our … Continue reading
Simply speaking, being “embodied” involves a shift out of a focus on our thinking evaluating minds and into a state in which we are more aware of our bodies, our breathing and our present-moment experience. Often this experiential place isn’t somewhere we’re … Continue reading
