Future research interests include self-care, burnout avoidance, holistic wellness initiatives, and the use of mindfulness in both the counseling and supervision process.
Self-Care and Family
Stephanie is a mom to two beautiful boys and enjoys exposing them to all the beauty the world has to offer. She is an avid reader, loves to hike, and enjoys yoga and mindfulness practices in her spare time. She can often be found sipping coffee and reading, with a highlighter in hand. She considers one of her greatest achievements to be that her boys both love books, as well. Her preferred genre is nonfiction, and she is always open to recommendations! She considers Anatomy of the Spirit, by Caroline Myss to be one of the most influential books she has read.
