With the assistance of a qualified counselor, you can learn the skills to deal with symptoms of stress, depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma and usually eliminate it from your life. You do not need to continue with the painful feelings of low self-esteem, hopelessness, and panic. You can return to your previous self or possibly even better with newly acquired life skills, better relationships with family and friends, and more self-worth and hope for the future.
Hello! Thank you taking time to view my page. It can be challenging to reach out for support so I truly commend you in taking this very courageous first step. One of the most important aspects in finding a counsellor is to find one who can make you feel welcome, and safe. It is my goal in therapy to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where you can feel comfortable in just being yourself, knowing that you are accepted, no matter what your circumstances may be. I am always humbled by the insight that my clients bring to our sessions. No one client is the same and my treatment strategy is reflective of this uniqueness.

I believe that every individual has the potential and the capacity to face hardship with strength and resiliency.

Through the therapeutic relationship I desire to create a collaborative, safe, non-judgmental and vulnerable space where clients can come to be seen, heard and known.
The effects of the last few years have caused an additional strain on marriages and families. Relationships can fall into negative patterns of disconnection and neglect. It can be devastating when one feels their partner is not there for them. I assist couples struggling with an emotional or physical affair, a life transition, or who feel stuck in their current patterns. I recommend pre-marital counselling as a beneficial way to address any potential challenges. I implement the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused or Relational Life Therapy depending on your needs as a couple.

Stephanie provides support for people experiencing stress and shame-related issues such as relational trauma, anxiety, perfectionism, religious trauma/deconstruction, self-acceptance/compassion, life transitions, compassion fatigue, stress management, and more.

You're tired of hearing from teachers, fighting with your child at home, and feeling like nothing you try is working. You know your child isn’t a bad kid, you don't need the teacher to tell you that, but then why do they act like that?
Oftentimes we feel ‘stuck’ as though no movement forward is possible, or that our story is too complex to navigate and find healing from. Through my own experience, and in journeying alongside others, I have come to believe that freedom and life, even in the midst of significant pain and loss is possible. My clinical approach is unique, as I seek to incorporate the spiritual journey of the client, as understood through a Christian worldview, into the therapeutic process. I work using a parallel process of deepening your understanding of Self, and of God as you begin to reflect on your story.
Mental health affects us all and in various ways. It can be hard to navigate and find new ways out of problems, especially if doing it alone.

In my clinical practice I specialize in working with young adults & adults around themes such as anxiety, stress, burnout, low self-confidence, life transitions, and substance use.
Accepting new clients. I aim to create a safe and comfortable space where we can work together to help you live the life you want.
