Hello! Thank you for reaching out! My name is Stephanie Hager and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Georgia and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida. I also have held my National Counselor Certification since 2002. I have 30 years of experience in working with children, teens, and adults in mental health and educational settings. I am a retired Army spouse and have lived in many states coast to coast. I have a wide range of experience with both life's challenges and mental health issues. I specialize in school-aged children and adults with behavioral issues, mental health issues (depression, anxiety, and trauma), and life issues (overweight, relationships, decision making, military lifestyle, parenting and career issues).
I treat everyone with respect and offer a warm, inviting and safe place to talk about issues and concerns. My counseling style uses techniques from a variety of approaches in the Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Motivational-Interviewing and Mindfulness fields. Together we will determine what approach will best address your concerns and we will develop a treatment plan.
You have taken the first step in your journey to improve your situation. That takes courage and shows you are committed to making a change in your life. We will work together to clarify issues and develop a plan to meet the goals you set for yourself. I will always support you and may even challenge you along the way.

Stephanie is a wonderful counselor. I love how she talks to me logically and she very clearly makes it a safe space to share things you may need to get off of your chest. She is very very good at what she does and I can't thank her enough.
