Hi, I’m Stephanie.
I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with advanced training in women’s health, an energy worker (Reiki Master and Advanced Level Integrated Energy Therapy Practitioner), and spiritual guide. As you can imagine, I take a truly holistic, mind-body-spirit approach to everything.
I’m a natural nurturer. When I was 7, my mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Her function has steadily declined over the years, and I’ve provided various levels of care and support to her since her diagnosis. About 6 years ago, I saw my dad through a terminal cancer diagnosis and supported him in every aspect until he passed. I’m also the mama of one living child and have another on the way. With all of these experiences, I’ve been stressed, stretched, and suffered. Each of them has brought me to my knees, which has allowed me to learn, grow, and stand back up. It’s a constant cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
I’ve always been drawn to the cycles of birth, death, and rebirth. Here in New England, I get to observe this pattern in nature as we move through the four seasons each year. In life, each experience I have changes me forever. Who I was before is dead, and I am reborn into a different person. This happens constantly throughout life for me. Sometimes it’s fast and feels easy, and sometimes it’s a slow and painful process. Oftentimes when it’s slow and painful, it’s because there’s something I didn’t allow myself to fully feel, experience, or heal from. I find myself suffering (again). And then I practice allowing and accepting what is. I tune into myself and identify my needs. I seek love and support from my tribe (we all need one!). I practice all of the techniques that I’ve learned over the years to bring myself back to the present – to come back home to myself. In the present, I remind myself that I’m enough. This is radical self-love.
Through my personal and professional experiences, I’ve found that I have a unique ability to hold space for people as they navigate the unknown and unexpected. Everybody feels and experiences things differently. There’s no “right” or “wrong”. It’s all about what’s right for you and what feels good for you….right now, because that can change over time too! If we haven’t already, we’ll all eventually find ourselves in this gray area, navigating the “messy middle.” I believe that we all have the ability to tap into ourselves and use what we discover about ourselves to move through life more whole than we were before.
Rebirth the Mother was born from my lifelong desire to ease suffering. It’s what I’m here for, and I believe that by bridging science and spirit, connecting deeply with all parts of ourselves, and practicing radical self-love, we can embark on a transformational healing journey and ease that suffering.
