Meet Stefanie

Stefanie has over 15 years of experience working with children and families in non-profit, public health, and private practice sectors. She has navigated mental health services personally and professionally, which allows her to come alongside clients with compassion and understanding during their most challenging life seasons. 



Using a mind-body approach, Stefanie joins clients to explore the experiential qualities of emotion to support change in their lives. Her work with children, individuals, and families is guided by Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Stefanie's developmental play background and her experience as a dance educator offer clients of all ages creative approaches to transforming relational and behavioural patterns. 

Rooted in Family Systems therapies, Stefanie believes emotional shifts experienced in the body create healing for generations. 



Stefanie is currently pursuing a master's degree in marriage and family therapy and has additional training in play therapy and dance/movement therapy. She has been a registered early childhood educator in the province of British Columbia since 2006 and holds an additional certificate as a Youth and Family Support Worker.
