Stephanie provides psychotherapy and executive resilience coaching to individuals and corporate teams

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Board-Certified Executive Coach and have a private practice in Oakville, Ontario.  Through thousands of client hours and years of business experience in health and wellness coaching, corporate sales, and health care, I have successfully developed a niche in helping my clients build personal and professional resilience.


I have a master’s degree in psychology (clin.) and am a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I founded the Centre for Resilience in 2012 with a vision to create a safe and effective experience for my clients, helping them make positive changes and overcome challenges to live their best life.

The core modalities that I use to support my therapy clients are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Relational Life Therapy (RLT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). My therapeutic approach draws from my training in Adlerian Psychology, Positive Psychology, Buddhist Psychology, Interpersonal Neuropsychology and Sports Psychology.

In my practice, I specialize in helping individuals (16-99 years old) with stress and anxiety, relationship and communication issues, major life transitions, career development, self-esteem, parenting, and caregiver burnout. I have a special interest in supporting adult children with parents that are struggling with dementia.

Therapeutic credentials include:

  • Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, Adler 
  • Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists #004243
  • Member of Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP) and American Psychological Association (APA)

  • Certifications in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety and Depression, Interpersonal Neuropsychology and Trauma Therapy

My passion for coaching spans 25 years. I began my coaching career helping clients improve their fitness, health, and mental wellness in medical, government, school, and corporate settings. Today as a Executive Coach, I use my hybrid experience as a licensed psychotherapist to lend expertise to the development of resiliency through individual and team coaching, workshop facilitation and organizational resilience training.

I share the lessons learned through my psychotherapy and coaching practice to help leaders build a resilient approach to life, especially in the face of our challenging new climate. In these uncertain and complicated times, a resilient mindset is increasingly crucial. Today’s workplace is rapidly developing new strategies that include hybrid and virtual solutions, and consequently, needs adaptable and innovative leaders to answer the call of these changes. My area of focus is using a strengths-based approach to deliver unique, structured, and custom services to help mitigate uncertainty and support positive change.

I bring a warm, professional and optimistic presence to my work and believe that we are all meant to do hard things and be better for it. I strive to be a lifelong learner and practitioner of resiliency and wellness in my own life.
