About Stephanie Gurewitz

Let’s keep this simple. I’m a nice person just like you. I listen to intuitively help you figure out how to improve your situation, whatever the case may be — 100% judgment free. I work as a therapist and life coach, integrating yoga and holistic expertise to create healing.

I care for all clients of all populations, but my experience and heart most commonly attracts the LGBTQ+ community, the Latino community, immigrants/migrants, survivors of domestic violence, abuse, trauma, and sexual assault, and cancer and chronic health survivors

Areas of expertise: Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Gender Issues, Anger Management, Relationship issues, Coping Skills, Spirituality, Mindfulness, Yoga, Fitness, Health and Nutrition, Latino Culture

Fluent Spanish speaker, nature seeker, traveler, yogi, meat-eater, weight-lifter, loving friend.
