Stephanie has danced with fear and anxiety all of her life. It showed up in so many different ways: lack of confidence, making bad choices, insomnia, feeling lost and stuck, the list goes on. Ultimately, becoming an anxiety expert out of necessity and now helps others leave their anxiety in the rear-view mirror. After a series of traumatic events that included her father’s death by suicide, and her husband’s life-threatening illness, Stephanie had the stark realization that something had to change and spent over 20 years researching holistic, natural, and scientifically proven ways to break free from the invisible bonds of anxiety. She dove into extensive training programs and/or certifications in hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping, Neurolinguistics Programming, reiki, yoga and more. Stephanie's career path has been built around communication starting as a celebrity radio DJ “Stevie Knox” in south Florida. Then her young family spent several years moving across country several times following her husband’s radio career. Once they settled down she opened a hypnosis practice which she successfully operated for 10 years and led to coaching, speaking, and her book Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom. Throughout the journey, she has accumulated a scientifically spiritual toolbox that is intuitively incorporated into her work and her life.
Over the years she has dug into her unique toolbox to help 1000s of people from age 8 to 82 break free from the vise-like grip of anxiety and create life-changing and lasting changes that allow them to say Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom.
Her two adult children, Crissi and Greg, are making their mark in the world, and she resides in Connecticut with Michael, her husband of over 30 years and their 2 rescue dogs, Maggie and Claire.
