About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist licensed in North Carolina with over 5 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and substance use disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and compassionate. I believe in treating anyone with respect. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Stephanie is super wonderful! She has a very welcoming personality that allows me to open up and dive into things while being able to drop my guard. We are just beginning our journey together but I am hopeful for what the future holds!

It’s only been two sessions, but I am feeling better after chatting with Stephanie. I really appreciate that we are able to text - I’m not quite ready for face time yet! I am very glad I decided to try Betterhelp and look forward to my next session.

Stephanie has been amazing so far. I had a counselor before her that i didnt really feel connected with me or remembered rhe things we talked about previously. I like that Stephanie takes notes and remembers things we were talking about and working on. Its still early in my therapy with her, but im finding her helpful already.

Written by E.M. on Jul 11, 2021 after therapy with Stephanie for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Stephanie is amazing. Very intuitive and can make sense of what I'm saying even if I feel like it doesn't make sense to me. She gets to the heart of the matter and is really good at understanding the fundamental issue and addressing that with actionable steps that I can take to improve my life. She's a great listener and a fantastic conversationalist with regards to conveying that she understands what you are saying and adding to the discourse with valuable knowledge and expertise. I would highly recommend Stephanie, especially to those with high anxiety issues like myself.
