About Me

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor with a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling. I have more than 20 years experience counseling individuals, couples and families. I enjoy working with people toward meeting their goals and working through their painful experiences. I find that most people don't seek help when they first need it because they believe they can "do it themselves". We live in a DIY (do it yourself) kind of society but I believe God never meant for any of us to go it alone. I am a Christian and God has gifted me to do this kind of work. He led me to become educated in the field but my relationship with Him is what ultimately helps others get through their problems.

It takes courage to take the first step in asking for help, so you should be proud of yourself. I don't believe it's an accident that you reached out for help and got me.

I look forward to working with you.

Stephanie is amazing. She really listens and remembers little details. Even on days when I don’t feel like talking, she helps improve my mood and mindset 100%. I’m thankful for her.

After only a few sessions, Stephanie Haywood has proven to be a blessing as a counselor who connects faith and therapy and exactly what I was looking to find. She is a great listener, is able to put the pieces together, and offers ideas, activities, and questions that bring clarity to situations. I am excited about working together to make a better me.

Written by J.A. on Aug 13, 2019 after therapy with Stephanie for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and anger management

Stephanie is a gem! She's very thoughtful, thorough, honest, insightful but most of all helpful. This is coming from a person that never wanted to do counseling and just "knew" I didn't need it. She's been key in helping my wife and I find our better place. She made us grow as a couple and individually. Thanks Steph!

Stephanie is clearly dedicated to her work as a counsellor, which I admire and respect greatly. She is warm, empathetic, and a great listener. I always look forward to our weekly calls.

Written by L.I. on May 01, 2018 after therapy with Stephanie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Stephanie is a calm, patient and insightful presence. I was in and out of crisis when I began messaging Stephanie, truly fixated on a single issue which was consuming all of the joy in my life. The fact that I could place all of this into a message, sometimes quite incoherent with emotion, gave me back space in other areas of my life. I have sent messages at all hours, and Stephanie always manages to get back to me within 12 hours or so. Her responses are always useful, non- judgemental, and respectful of my own outlook.
