I agree to hold your experience as confidential and to communicate with others in your support circle only with your express written permission.
I commit to work co-creatively with you, offering guidance from my own training and following your lead in terms of your interests and goals.
I commit to hold a large, compassionate, tender space of curiosity and wonder with you.
As a practitioner and human, I commit to upholding principles of anti-racism, anti-ableism, feminism, and affirming of people of LGBTQIA2S+, and varied bodies, gender identities, sizes, ages, and multi (or non) faiths.
I hold my role as an educator who also practices trauma-informed somatic therapeutic work with great care. I acknowledge that I am not a licensed psychotherapist nor trained medical professional. As such, I will be mindful as to what my areas of training are and are not. I agree to try to make referrals if or when we could use more support.

If you want Stefanie to consult with any other professional, friend or family member to share from our work together, you understand that you need to provide written consent before she can speak with anyone.

You will be mindful as to what her areas of training are and are not and can request recommendations for educational materials and/or referrals if we could use more support.
At a point at which you determine that you would like to end or take a break in our work together, you will give
at least 7 days notice, and attend one final session to reflect upon our work and provide a process of closure.
You know that you are then free to reach out again at any time.
