Stephanie's first career was in international corporate law, working in New York and Paris. Notwithstanding what brought her to France, it was place of great awakening. She discovered the worlds of depth psychology, the ancient mystics, I Ching, tarot, and eastern religion. Her abiding interest in the inner life took form, and she left legal practice to earn her master's degree in social work. Stephanie went on to complete post-graduate training in couples and family therapy at the Ackerman Institute, and has since studied a variety of modalities which she draws on in her work.
Stephanie has been in private practice for over a decade, working with adults, young adults and couples. She has also been engaged in teaching, consulting with other organizations, and supervising therapists. Stephanie was previously affiliated with Ackerman's Center for Families and Health and has been a guest speaker at the institute. She has served as an adjunct faculty member at Yeshiva University's Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology supervising students studying couples therapy. She also sits on the Board of Section VIII (couples and families) of Division 39 of the APA and has been the recipient of several grants, including the New Writers Award from the Journal of Family Process.
Since her early years in Paris, Stephanie has continued to follow her interest in eastern religion, mysticism, evolutionary tarot, and other spiritual practices. More recently, she has begun sharing aspects of these fields with clients who are interested in tapping into their own innate wisdom and deepening their connection to spirit and soul.
