Professional statement

Stefanie Raccuglia is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Denver, CO. Stefanie is passionate about helping women develop self-esteem, grow self-love, find confidence in what they do, and feel empowered in their lives. Many of Stefanie’s clients come to sessions feeling unsure about their decisions or how to navigate a complex personal and professional world - Stefanie brings creativity, warmth, kindness, and authenticity into her work to help them as they explore their identity and options.

In Stefanie’s practice, clients can expect a focus on the connection between the mind and the body. Her style largely draws from Somatic Therapy, a therapy style that draws on how the body feels, how the mind works, and the relationship between the two in times of stress and trauma. Stefanie makes sure that her clients don’t feel alone as they make the journey towards self-love.

Stefanie earned her Masters degree from Naropa University. With a personal background in theatre and dance, Stefanie often brings dance or movement therapy into sessions and is a certified Dance Therapist. Bridging the mind and the body, Stefanie strives to bring healthy mindsets and emotional well-being to all women.


Message to clients

Embodied healing places YOU in the role of healer. I don’t believe, no, in fact I know, that I do not have any superpower to change your past and present suffering, nor transform your pain into peace. I aim to inspire the container to help facilitate the most powerful tool you will need for healing: the relationship you have with you.

In this relationship you will learn to honor the knowing of both the mind AND body, and therefore lessen the stress caused by rejecting, or even hating, the parts of yourself that “don’t fit” or “aren’t successful”. You’ll learn to reclaim your value, assert your worth and redefine what success means to you.

NO MORE accommodating, assimilating, over-giving for a temporary fix of approval. NO MORE choosing to be one way or the other. It’s time to be all of you.
This relationship calls upon the inner knowing and intuition you already possess that has been silenced for too long and needs to take up space.

In working with me, you will learn that to be in connection with your body is power; to be present with and feel the range of your emotional experiences generates vibrancy; and to no longer let the doubts of mind and ego dictate your behaviors and actions creates peace. You will learn that giving yourself permission to be and feel all that you are and do, is not selfish or heroic, but necessary.

My own healing journey from being quiet, shy and ashamed to exist to becoming a leader, risk-taker, and at times the loudest one in the room, gives me the insiders scoop that this journey is not easy-- in fact, it can feel unraveling and painful. Pain that you can and will, survive. I am honored to support my clients as they rearrange to honor their true essence and integrate all of their inherent gifts to become the powerful and emotional beings they were always meant to be.

It would be my greatest privilege to witness you on your healing journey.
