Stephanie Bachmann Mattei, PhD

Stephanie Bachmann Mattei is the mother of 3 children (biological and adopted) and a Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication. Her core intertwined themes are: spirituality, parenting and healing. Since parenting is a major way of transmitting our unconscious wounds as well as our conditioning to social and cultural blueprints, it also becomes a powerful and far-reaching tool for social and spiritual transformation. As Gandhi proclaimed: “If we want to change the world we shall start with the children.” In Stephanie’s experience, parenting inevitably ends up being a call to integrate our unprocessed experiences and to bring healing to ourselves. To that respect, Stephanie loves tying Nonviolent Communication with mindfulness-based neuroscience and mindful self-compassion to support self-understanding, healing and wholeness.
