I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Alabama with fourteen years of experience working as a counselor for a wide range of concerns. I have worked with individuals and families dealing with anxiety, child related specific issues, relationship issues, couple issues, parenting problems, and many other issues. I have helped many individuals who have experienced trauma. I always approach every individual and situation from a trauma informed lens when counseling.
My counseling style is warm and engaging. I believe it is important to treat everyone with respect. One of the main ways I show respect is by really listening to hear your story. I also use a strength based approach utilizing the individual’s strengths to overcome the challenges they may face. I counseling approach uses cognitive-behavioral therapy and other styles while utilizing evidence based interventions to tailor treatment to your specific needs.
Thank you for taking the step toward health and healing through counseling. It isn’t easy to begin this journey but you have taken the brave first step that will bring positive change in your life. I look forward to working to support you on this journey.

Stephanie was very supportive during a major transition in my relationship. She helped me to work through a number of issues and gave me tools to help move forward. After a couple of negative experiences with other counsellors, Stephanie really helped me to see the value in therapy.
I have not had very good luck with therapist in the past and almost gave up a few times and then Stephanie came into my life!! She has helped me grow so much and I am so thankful for how much she has helped me this far!! I would recommend her to anybody she definitely knows her stuff!!
She is wonderful. She is understanding, caring, and gives me recommendations on how to solve the problems I am currently facing.
Stephanie is very knowledgeable and helpful. Already just one session helped so much.
I have only had one session so far, but I feel as though Stephanie Garrett is pushing me in the right direction. I came to better help for someone to help guide me on my journey of self growth and I think that together we can solve a lot of my issues.
