Hi, my name is Stefanie.
Over 25 years ago, I was at my breaking point. Thru addiction, domestic violence, opening up about childhood sexual abuse, being yanked outta the closet… I had let some of the worst experiences in Life that anyone could have beat me down. I had survived so much, but I was only focused on the pain and the struggle. In fact, I used to call myself “Life’s chew toy”. Ouch. I wouldn’t even look at myself when I was putting on mascara. And I didn’t like the woman staring back at me in the mirror.
Not only did I not like her, I didn’t TRUST her.
You probably know what that feels like.
When you don’t like yourself, it is so much easier to focus on others.
It’s easier to judge yourself based on what you do to make the people in your life happier.
It’s easier to trust and believe others before you trust and believe yourself.
It’s easier to let others set your boundaries instead of setting your own.
It’s easier to compartmentalize your thoughts, your feelings, your actions, your relationships, your…. easier but exhausting.
I mean, it is neverending. You’re always tired – mentally, physically, spiritually.
Overwhelmed AND underjoyed with Life.
Plus, you have no idea what is your heart’s desire because no one asked OR allowed you time to find out… not even you. Hell, I didn’t even have a bucket list! Do you?
And if you are in the place I was towards the end, you desperately want to figure out how to stop the people-pleasing, to rebuild your self-trust, to know who you are, like who you are and just be comfortable walking around in your own damn skin.
I was ready to find me again. All of ME.
Because I know how to focus on my heart wisdom and applied the inherent truths I found there, my life changed dramatically. I have a thriving and successful practice working with individuals, groups and non-profits. I have deep rich relationships with my children and grandchildren. And a loving relationship that feels like it’s my happily ever after.
All because I learned how to redevelop the connection to myself and give me the freedom to fall in Love with the gloriously messy, fantabulously authentic Me.
And you can too. I believe everyone deserves to know their authentic self and have Joy in their own lives… want some for yourself?
Working with me, you’ll find that place within yourself that knows your true self-worth and have support as you find your own voice. You’ll uncover the wisdom you already have that can lead you towards living more joyfully and bring about the significant, self-sustaining changes in your life that YOU long for.
Are you ready? Good. Because I am so freakin’ excited for you to see how good your life can be I can’t stand it !

Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment or psychotherapy.
However, Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis is a proven, adjunctive method to complement such ongoing treatment and care. It is a self-improvement process that facilitates access to a person’s internal resources to assist him/her in solving problems, increasing motivation, or altering behavior patterns to create positive change. Because hypnosis and hypnotherapy are a series of self-help skills and their effectiveness depends on the client, no guarantee can be made regarding results of their use.
