Nice to meet you,
I’m Stephanie Coady (she/her/hers), a Licensed Counselling Therapist-Candidate (LCT-C) with the College of Counselling Therapists of New Brunswick (CCTNB) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I’m a lifelong Frederictonian; completing my Bachelor of Arts at the University of New Brunswick and my Masters of Education at the University of New Brunswick in Counselling Psychology.
Hey, I'm Stephanie
A little bit more
During our time together, I consider the wholeness of you – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually and how you show up in all areas of your life.
My counselling style is influenced by a variety of person-centred/humanistic approaches in order to best help my clients deal with their life experiences and emotions. I have training in Emotion Focused Therapy, Process Experiential Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
The quote “kindness begets kindness” has always resonated with me, and I hope to help you carry the same kindness and compassion for yourself as you do so often for others in your life.
When I'm not in the office, you can find me chasing around a toddler, enjoying all things Fredericton, walking our dog, finding ways to express my creativity, playing board games, or curling up with a book and coffee. In the summer, you can find me on the water!
This logo was designed by my brother-in-law. The tree that is pictured here is a white pine. More specifically, the tree that can be seen on the horizon of the Northside of Fredericton from the Southside as you are driving down the highway, just before crossing onto the Princess Margaret Bridge.
I have always noticed that tree since I was a child, and the thought of ‘resiliency’ has always come to mind.
I think this speaks too of the battles we all face in silence, but once speaking up, it’s surprising to find just how many people may feel the same way too (ie. that others notice that same tree!).
Here’s an article about that tree:
Territorial Acknowledgement: I respectfully share that I live and practice as a guest on the unsurrendered and unceded Traditional lands of Wolastoqiyik and along Wolastoq (beautiful and bountiful river). I am committed to Piluwitahasuwawsuwakon (a Wolastoqey phrase that advocates for actions toward Truth and Reconciliation) as I engage and work with Indigenous peoples.
