When you became a parent you may not have realized at the time, that caring for and raising a child could be fraught with challenges like anxiety, learning exceptionalities, attachment issues, difficulty with social skills, or aggression. These may manifest as behaviours like opposition, tantrums, emotional outbursts, non-compliance, or body aches and pains. There are many pieces to the puzzle. No matter what your situation is, early intervention is key. Let’s start where you’re at. Let’s start today.
As a life-long learner, educator, and counsellor, Stephanie’s search for knowledge and wisdom is continuous. Children are complex and miraculous little creatures. They can be the cause of our greatest joys, as well as our deepest frustrations. If you’ve tried everything and nothing is working, this is when a real opportunity emerges to dig deep. Utilizing a philosophy that is comprehensive, intuitive, and evidence based, Stephanie weaves together a unique combination of skills and treatment approaches to get the root of the issue and restore a sense of balance.
How it Works
Back on Track now offers online group training instead of one-on-one counselling sessions, in order to meet the high demand for services and in an effort to support more families. The workshops contain all of the valuable content that has been used with great success in individual family sessions.
