I am a co-regulating manual therapist who mobilizes your nervous system, assists your body in re-developing your stress and trauma response with "tissue issue" relief strategies, and I teach you how to help yourself so you can gradually self-regulate. I've been developing my practice as an RMT since 2009, and love the direction my career has taken me so far!
My ultimate goal is to teach your body clear communication within your systems, so your neuroception (internal body awareness) can relay feelings of safety, comfort and ease. Together, we are creating a stress and pain response troubleshooting kit, to re-establish your innate healing ability. By fostering your adeptness to navigate Autonomic and Sympathetic Nervous System (ANS & SNS) distress management, you will learn to rule the world (well, your body world!). In simpler terms, I'm helping you decode the physical symptoms, while alleviating pain and exploring which "tissues have issues". From there, I coach you on your best movement and rehabilitation options, and connect you with some other amazing practitioners to keep on truckin'.
I welcome everyone to my practice, and I approach care from a deep respect for humanity and vulnerability. I completely understand how challenging it can be to develop a trusting bond that can promote healing and I respect to everyone who shows up for themselves. I work on myself just as much as I work on others, and I always try my best.
From very gentle techniques to deeper work, I tailor my approach to ensure that you're always relaxed, in control of your comfort and feeling the benefits on my table, and ideally as long as possible once you leave the session.
In addition to being a beach bum, I co-own two thriving wellness clinics in Toronto (www.originwellness.ca), and operate a wellness coaching business geared towards anyone who takes care of others for living. I love teaching people how to balance a thriving and ethical business, with a healthy and fulfilling personal life.
I'm also an RMT techniques educator, and I'm in the process of developing continuing education courses for manual therapists. My education comes from 15 years in practice, but also 25 years of personal growth through various therapies, life adventures, failures and come-backs.
As a professional musician, I spend my time between two careers, and feel as if I'm living a dream life. I'm fortunate to travel extensively and spend as much time in the reflecting on my own path and goals as I explore new environments.

My name is Stacey Lapham and I’m an explorer. I was born with a highly curious nature and inner worlds are my favourite area of discovery. My therapy sessions are driven by a curiosity to learn more about our emotions and how they impact our functioning, relationships, and overall wellbeing.
Red Cardinal Counselling provides support for issues like low mood, anxiety, overwhelming stress, and relationship challenges, among other concerns.
In addition to general therapy services, Red Cardinal Counselling specializes in the treatment of trauma, as well as in work with teens and parents.
Therapy sessions often follow an eclectic approach, where techniques and theory from a variety of therapy models are weaved together. The following are some of my favourite models of therapy to draw from:
Working with teens is Red Cardinal Counselling’s sweet spot!
This phase of constant exploration and intense emotions is fertile ground, where small seeds of confidence, compassion, and courage can grow and bear fruit long into adulthood if given the chance.
With social media and instant access technologies, teens today are navigating in uncharted territory and - to be frank - the waters are not always friendly. This, in conjunction with the impact of pandemic restrictions, has amplified issues like depression, anxiety, substance and alcohol misuse, bullying, and relationship strain between teens and parents.
Parents are also finding themselves in over their heads. Our role is to pass on the lessons we have learned, but the game has changed so much since our own teen years that we can struggle to know what to do ourselves.
