During sessions, clients often share their felt experiences of profound transformations that begin to unravel. Sentiments shared and heard at HF often run the same theme, using words like “lightness” and “flow” as well as “powerfully healing” and often “just what I needed!”.

Read below for more from clients for their perspective on the work we’ve done together at Healing Forward.

"Stephanie saved my daughter’s life and our family. She figured out what was wrong with my daughter. Her testing was subsequently confirmed via lab work. My daughter has been steadily improving under her care. I can’t say enough good things about her."

"I began my journey with Stephanie in order to get some relief from mood swings and irritability that had plagued me my whole life, but had been significantly increasing with peri-menopause setting in. I had noticed i was becoming increasingly impatient and snapping more at my children and my partner and wanted to make some changes. I had been aware that my past history of trauma has effected my mood stability throughout my life and had tried a number of modalities to address these things that I have noticed effect my relationships and sense of confidence in myself. In my work with Stephanie, I noticed profound changes pretty much immediately. I have been working with her for about 6 months and I can truly say my life has been transformed. I feel an overwhelming sense of calm and regulation in my body that I have never felt before. That is not to say that I never get upset, or irritable, but when I do, I am able to calm SO MUCH quicker than ever before and these moments are much shorter overall and come much less frequently. I have noticed a significant change in all the relationships in my life as I feel much less reactive and much more compassionate. I have grown closer to my children and my partner in a noticeable way as well. All i can say is the work I have done with her has transformed my life, and I am not exaggerating. It’s wild! I recommend this work for anyone who is wanting to shift something in your life. It’s transformative and powerful and as a mental health clinician, I wish that everyone I work with could benefit from this gift! It is truly a gift."

"I started working with Stephanie several months ago. I have Hashimoto’s (thyroid problems) and have bounced around doctors looking for an answer to my general feeling of being unwell. She has been amazing to work with and now, for the first time in several years, I am starting to feel better and ‘normal’ again. She works in tune with the body and tests for what it is the body actually wants, rather than what we think we might need. She is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain her process, as well as being wonderful and pleasant to work with. I have already recommended her to 3 friends and have no hesitation in recommending her here! I’m so glad I found her."

"I’m a master NLP practitioner myself, and I have met and worked with many healers, but I’ve never met ANYONE with this woman’s talent. I can’t speak to what Body Talk is about, but I can say she does amazing things with it! What I’ve experienced is profound and uplifting. Stephanie starts each of our sessions holding my hand and silently asking my body what it needs help for healing. When she does this, I feel a powerful sensation of my heart opening up to her. It’s like there’s an electric current running from her hand straight to my heart, and it brings me a deep sense of trust, acknowledgement and relief. It feels amazing! After working with her for two months, I can also say her process works – my body has relaxed and brightened, and my spirit has lifted up into a place of celebration. Stephanie’s an amazing healer; she connects on a deeper level than anyone I’ve ever worked with. If you’ve felt caught in old pains or discomforts of the heart, and haven’t been able to shake them, check her out!"

"Once I met Stephanie, I knew I had come across something so valuable that I’ve taken my whole family to see her. They all love Stephanie! Her friendly demeanor and personalized attention make all the difference; we look forward to every visit. The work that Stephanie does is so important to your overall well being. Her intuitiveness, perception and knowledge are unmatched by other nutritionists I’ve visited. She has worked extensively with my family member and helped me address mood and physical issues that had gone unattended until she brought them to our attention. The supplements and learned health routines have significantly turned our health around. Changes in diet have increased our energy, positive outlook and figure. Our skin is practically glowing! Stephanie is my secret weapon to dealing with a stressful demanding lifestyle and looking good while doing it. There is no one better to have looking out for you!"
PT, California
"I couldn’t resist telling you my good news! I had to drive to San Leandro and back today, and it was PLEASANT!!!!!!! I never felt overwhelmed, pissed off or angry. I was calm, even when 3 cars pulled in front of me unexpectedly!! Whatever I EmRes’d defused some….ok, A LOT of my traffic rage! I am really happy as all of my big triggers were triggered over the weekend, and I felt GOOD."

I have been going to Healing Forward for about 6 months and I absolutely love working with Stephanie on my healing journey. Stephanie is incredibly intuitive and goes right to the problem/issue I am having. She takes a very holistic approach to her healing method and works on the root causes, and not just resolving the symptoms. It is definitely “new agey”, and you have to be able to suspend your disbelief somewhat, but I have had some amazing breakthroughs and she was able to work on things that other practitioners couldn’t resolve.
DH, California
"I highly recommend Healing Forward to improve your diet and your physical and mental health! Stephanie is an insightful and caring practitioner, devoted to her clients best interests! Her unique blend of Body Talk and Nutritional Consultation it’s really something to be experienced! I feel so much better after an hour in Stephanie’s cozy office! Healing Forward is a true healing environment in the heart of Berkeley."
CB, California
"100% recommend Stephanie! Her fine tuned ability to reflect exactly what my body needs is amazing. I work in the health, wellness, supplement world and even I rely on the work that she does. Each protocol has been specifically tailored to me and she makes sure I’m comfortable and clear on every single angle. She will meet you wherever you are at along your health journey! Her knowledge cast a wide range of health issues and her energy is genuine. I go back at least once a month and have recommended her to others who feel the same."
SE, California
"I had one session so far with Stephanie using EmRes and I was shocked. The anxiety I normally felt with a certain situtation that appears daily, was managed. I'm in awe over this.
I can't wait to have more sessions!"
SS, California
"I have been working with Stephanie for almost a year now and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my health! I am very sensitive to anxiety and stress, and had done counseling before but felt I needed more support for my physical body and stress response. From the very beginning Stephanie has been wonderful to work with, so kind, compassionate, understanding and supportive. We have been working on nutrition, balancing blood sugar, increasing stress resilience and balancing moods. I am very happy with the progress I’ve been able to make working with her that wasn’t happening with other interventions. As a tangible example, my resting heart rate started decreasing to a much more normal number after a few months of starting nutrition and supplement support!! Stephanie has also been very understanding and accommodating of my budget, which has been so appreciated as well. I couldn’t recommend her more highly!!"
EM, California
"Stephanie worked with me on a 21 day cleanse. It was the first time I did a cleanse where I actually felt and saw the benefits within a week. My energy levels were up, my skin was clear, and my eyes were bright. The additional benefits of less bloating and weight loss were just a bonus. The 21 day cleanse also reset my system and I finished it craving less sugar. Stephanie was available the entire time to answer my questions and offer encouragement. She is 100% committed to healthy living and will support you through the entire process."
JG, California
"Stephanie works with skill, insight and sensitivity. And then real things happen. Good things! I’ve been seeing Stephanie for about three months now, and my skeptical mind has retreated to the sidelines as it observes how much better I feel: mood, digestion, energy, and mind itself. I found Stephanie and Healing Forward when I became curious about amino acids after a good experience taking l-glutamine and a difficult experience with irritable bowel syndrome, and I’ve been surprised — and delighted — by the range of Stephanie’s work with my specific health concerns and big-picture healing. I am incredibly grateful for Stephanie’s healing abilities, and I highly recommend Healing Forward. Health is precious."
JF, California
"Wonderful personalized and caring service! Always a pleasure to meet Stephanie. Results are always an eye opener."
AT, California
"Stephanie is great and always takes her time with me. It is a bit of a process, as my issues have been around for a while, but I am definitely making progress!!! Thank you, Stephanie!!!"
LS, California
"Stephanie is incredible. After working with her through regular phone consultations, the protocol she suggested for me helped reduce my cravings for sugar and comfort foods and helped address my stressful perfectionist tendencies. She is insightful and supportive, and she truly wants the best for her clients. Stephanie is one of the true healers I have met, and I definitely encourage anyone who is looking to heal and support his/her body through nutrition to reach out to her."
