Stefanie is a compassionate and caring individual who has extensive professional expertise in working with children and families.

I highly recommend Stefanie for children and families in need of support.

I cannot thank Stefanie enough for all that she’s done for my family. We have seen a big improvement in my child’s behaviour ever since we had engaged Stefanie’s services. Learning to read my child’s cues and responding with tools Stefanie had shown us has really turned things around for us, our relationship with our child is so much better because of it all.

About Stefanie

Therapeutic Dance/Movement Practitioner

A child’s daily experiences are like a spontaneous dance, varying in tempo, style, and intensity. I support children and families with social-emotional development through therapeutic dance/movement and play.

With over 15 years of experience as a registered early childhood educator and dance choreographer, I have experiences working in the non-profit, public health, and private practice sectors. It is my joy to help children learn the mind-body connection and support emotional regulation through their innate sense of movement. By coming alongside parents and caregivers, I support adults by empowering them with guidance strategies catered to each child's unique needs. I have partnered with families to support early childhood mental health, developmental differences, depression, anxiety, postpartum care, and maternal mental health.

By discovering together what is beneath a child's behaviour, I help families form connections and understanding for one another. I value a collaborative and integrated approach by working with a child’s extended network of adults, including their caregivers, teachers, and health professionals.

I am currently studying dance/movement therapy from West Coast Dance/Movement Therapy and receive regular clinical supervision. It would be my privilege to serve your family as you dance through the early years with your children.
