About Me

I am so proud of you for taking the first step. Something inside of you doesn't feel quite right and that has led you to search for answers. While I cannot guarantee to have all of the answers, I can promise to be with you every step of the way on your journey. This process is so important and I appreciate that you are sharing this part of yourself with me.

I have been working with individuals for 15 years. I have worked in many settings - including foster care, residential treatment facilities and outpatient clinics. I have worked with all walks of life and have witnessed growth, change, understanding and miracles in many people. I attended Loyola University Chicago for my graduate education in clinical social work. I have my LCSW in the state of Wisconsin.

I am ready to meet you where you are - we can figure out whatever it is that is standing in your way. You have taken the first step - and sometimes that is the hardest part. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Stephanie is amazing! She understands my issues and helps me deal with them with compassion for myself and humor—she’s just the best!(and I’m seeing changes in my life for sure):)

The first time I used BetterHelp I had to change my counselor twice before getting matched with Stephanie and I am so excited to be back with her! I feel like she actually listens and actually tried to get to the root of things and she offers solutions unlike the last two I had.

Feels like I’m talking to a friend who understands me even though we are only talking via messaging. Also she is knowledgeable in many areas that continue to surprise me each session and are extremely helpful.

Stephanie has been a great mental health resource for me! I worked with Stephanie for about 2 moths and we made huge breakthroughs in a short time. I had other counciling experiences that were lack luster and did not seem to really hear me when we discussed things. Stephanie was totally different! She listens and want to get you the best solutions possible.

Stephanie makes me feel seen and understood and is a safe space for me to explore myself. She is helping me to accept myself as I am, and to view myself in a different light — helping me to acknowledge my strengths instead of obsessing over the things I perceived as weaknesses. Thank you so much.

Stephanie listens really well and validates your feelings while also providing solutions. She’s great for me because I’ve gone through therapy before and felt like I always knew when I was being “therapy-ed”, and she is able to accomplish that without me immediately recognizing it.

Stephanie does a great job of fully understanding my concerns and does a lot of research regarding references that could be beneficial. She’s fun and easy to talk to, even just over chat, and makes my emotions feel validated.
