Written by D.U. on Jun 24, 2020 after counseling with Stephanie for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I really appreciate Stephanie's insights. Stephanie has a very candid yet gentle style that really helps me put things in perspective. She is a very skilled therapist who has helped me with so many new techniques I use every day in my healing journey. She has really helped me through some incredibly difficult times, and was there every step of the way to come out the other side calmer and stronger. She has helped me learn to believe in myself again, and I am so thankful for Stephanie and for BetterHelp being there.
