About Me

Hello! My name is Stephanie and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Iowa. I have practiced therapy for approximately 5 years, and have 8 years of experience in the mental health field. I provide a supportive, nonjudgmental environment for clients of all ages and backgrounds to express themselves. I have worked with people to address issues such as anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, PTSD, self harming behaviors, relationships, motivation, improving self-esteem, or just stress that life throws our way. Whatever your struggle is, we can work together to find solutions that work for you. I enjoy helping individuals of all ages, and have experience working with children ages 6 and up, as well as teens, adults, and families. I also have experience with dual diagnosis and crisis intervention.

I generally use a cognitive behavioral (CBT) approach, however I implement a variety of treatment modalities including person-centered, strength-based, and mindfulness. I want to make sure you get what you need out of this experience, and we will work together to help you reach your goals. Thank you for considering me as the person to help you on your journey, I'm excited for the opportunity to work with you!

Stephanie makes me feel heard, offers good insight and activities to improve my mental health. She is easy to contact and replies in a timely manner. I enjoy video sessions with her.

Stephanie is very supportive and has tried to make herself as available as possible.

She is very reassuring and helps me to realize when I am thinking too much or too deep into my issues. Would recommend.

Stephanie meets me where I am emotionally. I feel heard and understood by her when I don't feel understood by others. She helps reframe and navigate changes in my life. I recommend Stephanie over and over!

Stephanie has been amazing! She has given me lots of good opinions for coping mechanisms and has listened to me very well. She talks me through my overthinking and has helped me understand the triggers for my anxiety.

Stephanie has just been super to communicate her ideas and offer a list of helpful tips I was able to print for further review. She provided me with another option I might consider in the future. I’m very excited to have more conversation with her on Thursday.

Stephanie is amazing! She has the personality, warmth, and caring nature one would hope to find in a counselor, and is completely present regardless of where the conversation goes.

Written by L.I. on Jan 30, 2020 after counseling with Stephanie for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

I found to BetterHelp online and was paired with Stephanie. She helped me learn how to communicate with my daughter who is 20 years old and who was going through some toxic stuff. With Stephanie's help, I was able to communicate in a productive manner. It's amazing how the results were so different when they were said in the correct manner. Stephanie was extremely good at getting back in a timely manner. When I am in need of counseling again, Stephanie will be my counselor of choice!
