Aside for her experience supporting the Canadian Forces community, Stéphanie worked at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) with the chronic pain service, where she learned about the important role that the nervous system has on mental health and chronic pain management. She also learned the importance of parents support in the context of pediatric chronic pain management and loves to work with parents to help them develop their skills so they can best help their child in their journey through pain management.
Stéphanie is skilled in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), emotion-focused family therapy (EFFT) and her interventions incorporate elements from these approaches depending on the client’s needs.
