About Me

Hi, My name is Stephanie Freitas, and I am a New York State, Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

I believe that no matter how dark it may seem we can always find a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. I also believe that matter how small this light may be, we can make it grow into a force of strength and energy.

I have experience in working with a diverse client base and a wide variety of clients. I have experience with children, adolescents, adults and families. I have experience working with various mood disorders, including but not limited to, depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and specialize in forensics. I am friendly, upbeat and easy to talk to and can provide counseling in 3 languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese). I also have experience in utilizing different approaches such as CBT, DBT, solution focused, vocational counseling, psychoeducational and various other techniques. I look forward to working with you to help you learn these skills and helping you achieve your therapeutic and personal goals.

I will generally check messages Sundays and Mondays. If you are a new subscriber I will do my best to reply within 24 hours.

Stephanie is really great. She’s helped me a lot.

Steph is fantastic! As someone who grew up in a multi-cultural setting, I was weary of attempting counseling as I didn’t think my counselor would ‘get it’ or understand my background / religion / life experiences. Which is why I put it off for so long. But Steph is very empathetic and was able to identify with my concerns and bring in activities to address my concerns. Definitely recommend her!
