Meet Stephanie

As your coach, I look forward to co-creating and holding a positive space where you can explore and implement your vision for more vibrant physical and mental health.

I want you to leave our work together with a clearer sense of your innate abilities and a shift in mindset away from negative thought patterns and towards possibilities. This is the work that leads to lasting, sustainable behavior change.

Each of my clients is innately resourceful, creative and whole. I love the process of watching someone rediscover their strengths and connect to the values that ground and guide them.

Together we explore each area of your life that brings you fulfillment and challenges. And then, stone by stone, we build a path towards change.

Additional Information

I have worked for over 15 years in the mental health field, specifically in nonprofit residential treatment programs and education. For more information on my past experience, please visit my LinkedIn profile.


Alongside my current health coaching work, I continue my work in nonprofit marketing. I currently oversee the clinical referral relations work at Gould Farm, a therapeutic farm in Massachusetts, and consult for the Collective Leadership Institute, a German nonprofit focused on systems change and environmental sustainability.


I was creator, producer, and co-host of the Mental Horizons Podcast which got invited to the SXSW podcast stage! My two favorite episodes of that podcast were with Georgia Ede, MD and with Chris Palmer, MD on the topic of nutritional psychiatry.


This podcast came out of my work with Virgil Stucker and Associates, a therapeutic consulting firm specializing in working with families seeking mental health care. I helped Virgil launch his business and for three years was his Operations Director and Family Liaison.

Also with Virgil, I co-authored the booklet, A Family Guide to Mental Health Recovery, What You Need to Know from Day One. 

I am the mother of two teenagers and married to a Matthew, the farm manager at Gould Farm. My hobbies include cooking, foraging, herbalism, rewilding, and hiking in the woods.
