Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am grateful to have been working in the field of health and human services for over 23 years. I am humbled to provide clinical counselling services to individuals, families, couples and groups. In all of my interactions I centre safety, collaboration, trauma-informed practice, cultural humility, and compassion. I hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology and a PhD with a  specialization in the field of substance use and addiction. I work alongside youth and adults involved with alcohol and/or other drugs and strive to meet people where they are at with both a strength-based and collaborative lens. My deep passion involves supporting family members and carers affected by substance use who may be seeking services in their own right, or a safe place to share their experience as they navigate the rollercoaster of loving a person involved with substances.

I am available to assist children, youth, adults, families, and couples experiencing stressors of mental health and/or substance use challenges, trauma, life transitions, health behaviour change, COVID, parenting/caregiving, grief and loss, or family conflict. I am available both in person and remotely.

I work with men experiencing difficult problems. Such problems go by many names, and may be new or old, but all share the common trait of stubbornly obstructing our happiness. Yet despite the hardship they cause, our problems also carry essential insight about what is needed for their resolution. I work with you to reveal these insights, to gather their wisdom, and to transform them into opportunities for greater well-being and engagement with life. You can visit my website to easily book a free, unhurried conversation about the problems you’re experiencing, and the life you’d like to live. We’ll talk about ways to help you move toward that life, using approaches that feel natural, intuitive, and possibly even exciting.

Accepting NEW Clients – Are you looking for support in navigating anxious thoughts or feelings, or what feels like a dark cloud following you around? Are you tired of feeling like you’re not enough? Is a new life change causing stress or needing exploring? Do you feel burdened by obsessive thinking, or difficulties with food and body image? Are there relationships in your life that you’d like to explore, or better understand how you feel when around others? Are you simply hoping to build self-awareness or coping strategies?

It’s normal if reaching out feels scary. I’ve worked with individuals in public, athletics, and private health settings, and i’m looking forward to connecting with you.

I am humbled to have been working in the helping field since 2003. During this time, I have walked alongside many people as they navigate life, deal with hardships, and persevere. I see my role in supporting you as holding space for your hurt and distress while also assisting you in finding the change you hope to see within yourself and the relationships around you. I strive to create a partnership of trust and support and to shine a light on your strength and capacity. Typically, people come to see me because life is hard, but counselling does not need to be. I infuse our time together with hope, and laughter. A little bit about me is that I am a partner, father, weekend athlete and outdoor enthusiast.

We all need an outlet outside of family, friends and work to open-up about issues that need clarification. We can collaborate on solutions, and come up with ideas. Counselling often helps in dealing with problems that are bringing us down, and we feel holding us back from progressing in life.
My approach is influenced by person-centered theory using techniques from Solution Focused Therapy. I do not focus a great deal on emotions or get stuck in the past. Instead, I work on current behaviors, and where you want to go from here by breaking down what is holding you back.
