Her professional areas of interest include self-esteem, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, grief, body image and eating disorders, identity development (including multicultural and LGBTQIA identity), and trauma.

In 2003, Stephanie obtained her bachelor’s degree in International Studies from the University of Oregon. After graduation, she commenced working in the field of International Education where she discovered her passion for working with people from all over the world. In 2006, Stephanie found her enthusiasm ignited in another career field and began training as a healer. She discovered that she was an “edgeleaper”, a person who finds themselves on an edge of a profession and is ready to take its wisdom and knowledge and transform it to a deeper level. As a supplement to her traditional university studies, she trained with the masters of earth based healing traditions and Eastern spiritual practices. In particular, Stephanie has trained with Shiva Rae and Regina Marian.
