About Me

My name is Dr. Stephanie Arel. I write and teach about internal obstacles that get in the way of self-growth. I believe that self-reflection, through self-examination, helps people help themselves and, in turn, help others. I am committed to providing tools and methods of caring for the self to support those engaged in caring for others. Strengthening the self leads to healthier living, better relationships, and flourishing communities.

Mission Statement: Facilitating growth through self-reflection to strengthen social and interpersonal connections

In this podcast series, Dr. Stephanie Arel and Jessica Daugherty envision the Khôra as a holding space, a container for encountering the emotional impact of caring and bearing witness to trauma.

The series records the experiences of those engaged in practices of care, who may encounter traumatic circumstances at work, in order to illuminate strategies for individual growth, especially in situations where life presents stressful circumstances or when others are in need.
