Do you want to make a positive and lasting change in your relationship with food, your body and yourself?
Hi, I'm Stephenie. I help women feel more connected, confident, and in tune with their bodies. As a result, they spend less time feeling bad about their bodies and more time focusing on the things they love.
Why do I do this work? My "why" is my journey.
I went through most of my life feeling “less than” and “not enough.” I don’t want you to stay stuck there as long as I did. I believe every woman should feel confident & joyful in their body no matter their weight, shape, or size.
Why is this so hard?
Eating should be an intuitive process focused on how we feel and what our body needs but, unfortunately for many of us, it's become an unconscious, emotional and often disconnected experience. It's painful, and it's frustrating. But, I understand because I've been there before. So often dieting and eating habits have less to do with our bodies and more to do with something that needs healing inside.
I know this matters to you because you want to:
- Stop obsessing over your weight and what you're eating.
- Feel comfortable in your skin.
- Stop comparing yourself to others.
- Release old patterns and habits.
- Enjoy fashion, wear tight clothes, and feel sexy!
What could you do if you felt lighter physically, mentally and emotionally with more energy and headspace for other things?
I'll show you how to shift your eating patterns, giving you the tools to feel confident and empowered. Then, we'll work together on your inner healing and create lifelong change.

"I have self compassion the first time in my life and an awareness of the connection between my behaviour and feelings and how my body responds, and I have more respect and communication with my body."Debbie Vandennaker, Beaverton, Ontario, Canada
"Before working with Stephenie, I felt unhealthy and ashamed of my body and my habits around food and exercise. Now I choose movement that feels good to me rather than what I think I should be doing. I feel more empowered, like I have the choice to be healthy rather than this being something that is fixed for me."Hayley Stanton Truro, United Kingdom
"Before working with you, my body and food were the centres of my day. I couldn't focus on anything other than exercising or restricting more than I did the day before. After working with you, I feel more connected, confident, and in tune with my body. I'm kinder to myself and have been able to make new goals for the future that aren't body-related."Mikayla Shaw, Lindsay, ON
