occurence was in process. Their eyes glow brighter, their posture stretches taller, and the wide grin from ear to ear echoes the new found freedom that they have achieved. For many it’s a profound and noticeable change, and it’s a feeling many of Stephanie’s clients had thought was lost forever. The most common report is: “You accomplished more in one session than in any ten I have been in before- Wow!”
The great news is that this is only the beginning. The most amazing results continue to be seen months and years in the future. Stephanie regularly sees her clients making necessary and healthy changes in important relationships and moving forward to embrace their life’s passions and personal dreams.
It’s surprising to witness the results that accompany such profound inner change. For Stephanie it’s always amazing to witness a client empowering themselves and experiencing these changes, but it isn’t a surprise. Guiding people in this way has been her passion for more than 25 years. Having worked with everyone from CEO's, medical professionals, psychologists, scientists, entrepeneurs and those seeking full and whole lives....Stephanie has guided many to empower their worlds in profound and positive ways.
Experiencing change, creating change, and putting change in context is a natural progression in the context of Stephanie’s life. Growing up in the 1950’s in the still-segregated town of Florence, Alabama, her parents owned and operated the largest weekly newspaper in Alabama.
Both parents were avid Civil Rights activists and heavily involved in New South politics. Stephanie’s mother was President of the Alabama Women’s Press Association, and close friend’s with her former college roommate Harper Lee, of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” The dinner table was a lively ongoing forum where southern writer’s and rising politicians met over fried chicken and scotch to debate the state of the world. Children were expected to join in and participate. Whether through their newspaper or their activism, the family took on the daunting task of taking on humanitarian issues for the sake of forming a New South. Stephanie fondly remembers the family dinner table mantra “what are you going to do to change the world today?”
Lineage of Rare Mentors Produces Extraordinary Insights/Intuitions
Stephanie’s political upbringing forged a desire to make a difference! At an early age she came to the assertion that positive world change and an end to violence occurs when people first learn to settle their internal distress and seek peaceful solutions to their differences. Great leaders and a great country are formed by people who operate with inner clarity, peace, and a vision of their personal worth thus creating the realization of the worth and respect of others.
Asking the question, what are the avenues that most quickly achieve internal clarity and peace (the politics of the self,) Stephanie chose training and mentoring in the areas of Ericksonian Hypnosis and Gestalt Therapy. Mentored for 15 years by two of the country’s most esteemed therapist’s, Stephanie while in training at the Gestalt Institute met Richard Bandler, father of Neuro-linguistics. So taken was she by Richard’s ability to make rapid, deep, and long-lasting changes in resistant client’s, that Stephanie spent the next 8 years of her life studying with the top mind’s in the field. She finished her studies in NLP as the student of Dr. Wyatt Woodsmall. Woodsmall is a recognized expert on Peak Performance Modeling. Stephanie was awarded Certification as a Certified Trainer of NLP. She is one of 139 internationally certified experts in this field. She additionally is Certified in Applied Control Theory, Drug and Alcohol Counseling, and is a trained Superior Court Mediator.

Created by Dr. Matthew Thie, Kinesiology synthesizes targeted procedures from Acupuncture, Osteopathy, and Acupressure to determine imbalances whether physical, chemical, environmental, or emotional.
As a result of her many dedicated years, fine-tuned intuition, ease, and clarity flows through her work. The complex becomes simple, and many powerful changes occur in a short amount of time. Since Stephanie understands that people are so unique, her techniques are as varied and deep as the people she is serving.
