About Me

Hi, my name is Stephanie Fuertes. I am a licensed mental health counselor in New York. I have experience working with adults from all walks of life who have dealt with life challenging transitions, stressful situations, emotional and behavioral problems, relationship problems, loss and trauma. My style is authentic, compassionate, and non-judgmental. My approaches are person centered, meaning I view you as the expert of your life, capable of change and achieving your goals; cognitive-behavioral, meaning I will help you understand how certain thinking patterns shape the way you view yourself, others and your world; and trauma-informed meaning that together we can gain an understanding of why you are who you are today. I am here to support you on this journey.

I just started therapy with Stephanie and I already see myself being more optimistic and confident. She asks me thought provoking questions and we discuss the answers while she gives me suggestions on how to look at things differently. I feel validated and heard.

Stephanie is truly incredible. She genuinely seems like she cares and is present at all times during our conversations! Inside or outside of video sessions, I feel so safe talking to her and feel like I have the potential to work through any issue. Her guidance has really helped me in such dark times!

Stephanie is nothing less than a fantastic therapist. Not only is she a compassionate listener, but she provides the best advice that I can actually apply in my real life situations/conflicts. She is completely non-judgmental and creates a safe environment in which I feel comfortable to talk about what ever is on my mind.

Absolutely loved working with Stephanie! She really listens to you and makes therapy such a comfortable experience! She has helped me to further explore conflicts in my life and ask questions to find those answers myself as well! I have loved working with her thus far!
