Therapeutic Services 


Trauma Therapy

Trauma of various forms has significant impacts on our lives. The way we think, feel and behave can change drastically after experiencing trauma. Therapy can make a big difference in minimizing trauma symptoms. 

Divorce Counselling for Adults and Children

Separation and Divorce are difficult for the whole family. Stefanie offers various support in this area including individual support and support for parents together to learn how to support their children during this transition.

Domestic/Intimate Partner Violence 

Stefanie has extensive experience working in this area. She has worked with survivors of this type of abuse, perpetrators (both men and women) and children who have witnessed and been impacted by domestic violence.

Depression & Anxiety

Depression and Anxiety are some of the most common and serious concerns that people attend counselling for. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been found to be extremely effective in a short period of time. 

Parenting Skills

Parenting is the toughest job that anyone can do and most people need support or guidance from time to time. Regardless of you child's age, there's always more to learn.

Couples Counselling

Successful relationships and marriages don't just happen, they take a lot of work and maintenance. If you're looking for a tune up or are dealing with a significant event, counselling can help. 

Services related to Separation & Divorce 

and Family Court

Parenting Plans

A parenting plan is a written document that outlines how parents will raise their child after separation or divorce. You may have heard of legal terms such as “custody” and “access” used to refer to these arrangements. A parenting plan doesn’t have to use legal terms but rather focuses on the plans made by the parents through mediation. In order to work on a Parenting Plan with a professional, you and your partner (or ex partner) need to be willing to work together in the best interests of your child(ren). Stefanie will help you to negotiate the terms of the agreement and make suggestions that will best serve your unique family. Parenting Plans can be a great way to avoid a great deal of stress that come along with the court process. It is always recommended that you speak to a lawyer prior to finalizing any agreement. By creating a clear parenting plan, your family can avoid future stress by having a solid plan in place for where the children live, what their schedule is, and how information is passed between the parents, among other things. Get in touch with Stefanie to find out if creating a Parenting Plan would be helpful for your family.


Custody and Access Assessments

Section 30 of the Children’s Law Reform Act allows a judge to order a custody and access assessment in certain circumstances, or for parties to agree to have one completed. These circumstances vary but generally involve serious clinical concerns by the judge such as the mental health of the child, parental alienation, or a concern that one or both parents are unable to care appropriately for the child(ren). The purpose of an assessment is to garner the observations and opinions of a qualified professional who will use this information to make recommendations in a formal report regarding the post separation custody and access of the child(ren). Please contact Stefanie to discuss this type of assessment in more detail.


Voice of the Child Reports

Voice of the Child Reports are one technique to ensure that children have the opportunity to be heard in custody proceedings. It may be ordered by a Judge when there is a contentious matter involving parenting, or may be requested by either of the parties involved in the matter. Such a report, sometimes known as the Views of the Child Report, provides information about what the child thinks about his or her life and the issues in dispute between the parents to the court to assist in the decision making process. The Clinician's role is to ascertain the independent views and preferences of the child and to provide these views in a formal report to the court.


Psycho Educational Session for Separating Parents

This 2 hour session is for parents who are planning to separate and would like to know how to support their children through this major life change. Learn how to tell your children about the changes in the family, how to support them through the transition and what to look for post separation. While this is helpful to each individual parent, it is also helpful in setting the tone of the separation moving forward to ensure that your children's need are of the utmost priority and so you can feel confident in supporting them throughout the process and afterwards.
