Hi, my name is Stefanie and I use the pronouns She/Her. I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#3806) and a Certified EMDR therapist.

I came into my role as a Clinical Counsellor because I love working with people to achieve a greater sense of self-awareness and helping them move towards becoming a version of themselves that they strive to be.  My approach to counselling comes from a belief that all individuals are deserving of respect and empathy.  I take an accepting and non-pathologizing stance to all issues that are brought into a counselling space.  I also practice from the foundation that each individual is truly unique and work to honour the history they bring into the room.

I spent 14 years working at a non-profit family counselling organization as a clinician and supervisor. After moving into private work, my area of practice became focused on EMDR while also integrating techniques from somatic therapy and parts/dissociative work.  I also work through a neurodivergent affirming lens and have specialized training in working with ADHD, Autism, and Complex Trauma. As a mother of two children myself, I am especially passionate about working with caregivers to help heal past trauma and working to create a sense of self-compassion. 

I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at Simon Fraser University, focusing on Psychology and Criminology.  I followed up with a Master of Arts degree at Adler University, and later became registered through BCACC as a Clinical Counsellor.  My post-graduate training includes, EMDR, healing after sexual abuse, trauma-informed practice, and working from an anti-racist and decolonized stance.

I am grateful to be practicing on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem First Nation), which lies within the shared territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Squamish, and Sto’:lo Nations.


I believe that the greatest gift we can give ourselves is the ability to be true to one’s self.  To figure out our own personal identity and maintain that authenticity in all circumstances.

For most people, this is a life-long journey to check in with ourselves and examine who we are and what we value on a regular basis. This leads to the greater state of self-acceptance and the ability to find peace within ourselves.


I believe that finding humour and laughter in everyday situations is essential in order to get through life’s toughest circumstances. 

Humour is a great way to lighten the weight of life and reconnect with what brings you joy.  


Our lives are comprised of the stories we tell and the stories we keep. 

One of the things I value most is the honour of holding another’s story and helping them find a way to recreate a new narrative that enables them to see things from a different perspective.
