Stephanie Deaver

Professional Experience

Stephanie Deaver has been working in the field of mental health for the past 15 years.  She aims to empower individuals to understand their mental health and teach them the tools they can use to find healing, balance and mental strength. She is also involved in educating the community about mental health and is passionate about fighting against the negative stigma that mental illness has historically had.  She currently works as a therapist for Betterhelp.com in addition to volunteering for her church as a mental health specialist, which entails creating and presenting research and information to the community about mental health.  Stephanie has worked in many different inpatient and outpatient mental health settings throughout the past fifteen years and has enjoyed working with a diverse population of clients with an array of mental health issues.   

Education

Stephanie has an undergraduate degree in social work from Brigham Young University and a Master’s of Social Work from Arizona State University.  Her desire to dedicate her profession to helping those with mental illness was ignited by her time at BYU working for the Utah State Hospital and at ASU interning for the Arizona State Hospital on both the adult and adolescent units. Working with so many amazing clients who struggled with such serious mental illness opened her eyes to how much more needs to be done with mental health in our country. 

“My Philosophy on Mental Health and Wellness”

Nearly everyone today is affected by either their own struggle with mental health or the mental health of friends and loved ones.  The more we can encourage people to be aware, openly discuss and learn about mental health, the less stigmatized it will become and the healthier our society will be.  I desire to be instrumental in this cause and to share my passion and knowledge about mental health with anyone who is searching.
