I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Wisconsin where I have been practicing for 10 years. I recently started my own business online offering psychological mindset mentorship services to women struggling with loss of identity, poor self-esteem, healing the inner child and overall improving their quality of life. I worked in a psychiatric hospital for nine years in multiple positions including a practicing counselor as well as a psychological assistant completing diagnostic intake assessments for children and adolescents. I have been with my current private practice for five years where I have served individuals ages 5 to 55.
My specialties include sexuality/sexual identity/gender identity, improving distress tolerance and emotional regulation skills, using motivational interviewing and client centered techniques to provide some control and responsibility for the client. I approach my clients with the utmost empathy and understanding as seeking help is a huge step in the healing process. I am welcoming and down to earth and treat individuals how I would want to be treated if I were on their side. I am eclectic in my approach and often pull from many modalities depending on client needs.

Stephanie has been kind, understanding, and patient. She listens as I babble on about both little and big things in life and challenges me to asses situations to help me grow. She is always right on top of messages and responding and offers amazing encouragement on the small wins and successes that I share with her.
Stefanie's input is always extremely helpful. She has helped me explore and better understand myself, especially around depression, anxiety, and my gender identity. She is very trans-positive and supportive. She really helped me through a difficult time, and I highly recommend working with her!
Stephanie does a great job with being direct but kind and supportive at the same time. She checks in when you didn’t even know you needed a check-in and responds quickly.
