They say if you find a career you love, it doesn't ever feel like work. Well, I've been loving my career for the past 11 years! I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology and master's in Agency Counseling. I worked at an Out Patient Therapy center for 10 years and now currently work at an acute hospital that specializes in suicidal/homicidal ideation and psychosis. I use Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused as my main therapy approaches. Based on the client's needs, the approach will be individualized. Are you very anxious? Can't seem to stop the irrational thoughts from taking up most of your day? I provided guided mediation to help with reducing anxiety and PTSD related symptoms.

Stephanie has helped me work through some major anxiety issues that I’ve experienced in the past couple years. She’s helped me work through past trauma experiences and grief while concurrently supporting my healing processes. She’s given me support and guidance to set boundaries and make changes that have proven to be beneficial to my overall life experience as well as tools to deal with current challenges and tools to use as new situations arise.
Besides being professional in her position, she is also thoughtful and kind and easy to talk to, I highly recommend her.

Stephanie has helped me through a very difficult time in my life, and I have come out on the other side feeling more confident in myself, ready to make firm and healthy boundaries, and fight for what's important in my life. She also helped me identify my ADHD, while I'd gone 34 years just not knowing why I felt different my whole life. She is wonderful.

I'm not sure exactly how long Stephanie has been my therapist, but I'm so thankful I found her! We do chat sessions, which is awesome because I have social anxiety (although I totally could handle any kind of session with her now!), and she is nothing but AMAZING! When I literally just need to talk to someone about something out loud so I can work through it myself, she provides exactly the right guidance to get me through and when I have NO idea what I'm doing, she either guides me or gives me direct suggestions! Not only does she support me in working through difficult things, but she celebrates my achievements and successes. I never feel judged for not making progress but I feel like she sees every tiny success (and obviously the big ones!). She has never missed a session and has been super forgiving when my life got so hectic I had to reschedule back to back! She is everything you want in an LPC!
