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)
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 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 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)
After a few months working with Stephanie I feel re-energized and hopeful.A.F.
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.
Just want to let you know that you’ve been a light on my path, thank you.Unsolicited client email
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 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.
Working with Stephanie, I have been able to discover a whole world of possibility to heal inside of myself.N.R.
Thanks again for everything. Our sessions are helping me so much. Everyday I feel stronger.Unsolicited client email
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)
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.
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
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.
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
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
