Hi! My name is Stephanie and I’m a psychotherapy intern here at Your Story Counselling. I believe that each person has their own unique life story built through experiences with others, external influences, and internal meaning-making. I am honoured to be in the position to listen to life stories and help clients write new chapters in their lives.
I believe that no two people are alike and that therapy should be tailored to the goals and experiences of each client. I draw on many modalities to fit the unique needs of all clients. In particular, I utilize Narrative Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Somatic-Based Practice, Mindfulness, and Acceptance, Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion-Focused Therapy. Through these approaches, we can create new meanings, beginnings, and life paths to help you feel in control and fulfilled.
Above all, I hold a profound belief that all individuals are worthy of safety and acceptance. I am committed to creating a welcoming and secure environment for every client. I achieve this through a therapeutic approach that is person-centered, strengths-based, pro-LGBTQ2S+, pro-diversity, neuro-affirming, trauma-informed, and accessible.
I’m looking forward to hearing about your stories and experiences. Feel free to reach out for a free 15-minute consultation to see if we’d be a good fit!
“I am not only a thing, but also a way of being, one of many ways, and knowing the paths I have followed and the ones left to take will help me understand what I am becoming.”
