Stefanie is a Registered Social Worker & Psychotherapist and Yoga Instructor. She loves her work and feels privileged to hold space for her clients in the therapy room and yoga studio, witnessing daily the transformation that occurs when we meet ourselves with vulnerability, acceptance and compassion. Stefanie values the journey of developing intimate relationships with ourselves and conscious connection with others. She often marries her work in mental health and mindful movement to create wellness retreats and experiences. She currently hosts a weekly virtual Womxn's Yoga class and Sharing Circle as well as a variety of events with Float Valley, a Wellness Centre in Markham, Ontario. Stefanie is also a Facilitator at New Leaf Foundation, an organization that brings trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness programs to youth in least-served and often stigmatized communities. At the center of her work is the therapeutic relationship, building genuine connections with her clients, honouring each person’s agency and holding a supportive space. Her style can be described as warm, empathetic and down to earth. It is her joy to meet you and learn with you.
