Stephanie Belen

Welcome! My name is Stephanie (she/her) and I’m a family mediator and social worker based in Pickering, ON. I offer counselling to those struggling in their co-parenting relationship to find creative ways to work through conflict and make it out on the other side. For clients completing the collaborative law process who may require ongoing support, I can provide a smooth transition of service.

With over 13 years of experience working in child welfare with families experiencing trauma, separations, and transition, I bring a wealth of knowledge, empathy, and insight to those I serve. I bring experience working within the family court system, as well as multiple collaborations with educational, health, community and police networks. I offer clients a judgement-free space and recognize that their individual struggles stem from a combination of their choices, experiences, conditioning and environment. I operate from an anti-racist, trauma-informed lens and utilize a combination of family systems, attachment, narrative, mindfulness and solution-focused approaches. Thanks for stopping by!

With encouragement and gratitude,
