About Me

Hello. My name is Stefan Bain and I am a Clinical Therapist (LCSW) with over 25 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, addiction and recovery, career challenges, trauma, sex and sexuality concerns, aging-related issues, and LGBT-related issues.

My therapy style is warm and interactive and my therapeutic approaches are based on best-practice and evidence-based. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. One of the main goals of therapy is to provide you with the tools you will need to be successful long after treatment ends; therapy is just one step in your total wellness.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support you. My hours at BetterHelp are Monday-Thursday 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm Central Standard Time, and Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7 am until 10 am Central Standard Time. If these hours do not work for you, please feel free to connect with a therapist with hours fit best for you and your needs.

I look forward to working with you!

Stefan has helped me a lot. I appreciate his gentle but firm encouragement to keep myself accountable for my emotions, while showing genuine empathy for my feelings. His warmth and encouragement have proved invaluable to me. I recommend him highly.
