About me

I am licensed Mental Health Counselor, based in New York with 15 years of professional work experience; working with teens, families, adults and couples. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. I strongly believe that every person has a unique path that require custom achievable goals.

I utilize various therapeutic approaches which include but not limited to, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral techniques, humor and gentle confrontation.

My focus is to provide insight into an individual's emotional experience by guiding them through understanding how their thoughts can influence emotions and lead to certain behaviors.

My multicultural background grants me a sensitivity to cultural expressions and their impact on identity, relationships and the therapeutic process

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started; look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Stephanie Diaz. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Stephanie has a wonderful balance of listening and giving clear feedback. She really takes your priorities into consideration and guides you in that direction in a healthy way. I’ve never had therapy before so I was wary, but I really feel fortunate that I was matched with her. There have been many moments when talking with her gave me so much more clarity and simple insight into my situations. Even in time when I have many trust issues, I can say with certainty that I trust her guidance and am thankful to be able to rely on her.

Personable but professional, engaged and prioritizes the things you say. Excellent experience.
