I am filled with overflowing gratitude for the many one-on-one mentoring sessions Stephanie has so generously shared with me. She accepts and meets me where I am in my learning, living and sharing of compassionate communication. Through her gentle companionship I can relax and share my insecurities and, as result of our mutual sharing and reflection, she has helped me fill in gaps and seek opportunities to grow and learn. Stephanie is a wise and trusted teacher whom I look up to and aspire to emulate. She embodies for me a deep level of compassion, care, and integrity. I am continuously inspired by her open-hearted living, her profound listening and her unending appreciation for human interconnectedness.                                         Susan J.
