About me

ABOUT ME
My goal as a therapist is to help people find healing & joy in their lives so that they can live as they were created to & reach out beyond themselves. I have been a therapist for 7 years and worked with people of all ages (children, teens, families, parents, adults, couples) using a variety of therapy modalities including: cognitive, Christian, art, and play therapies. I tend to use a strength-based approach to therapy, which means I go where my clients need/want to go and I encourage the strengths I see in them while also promoting growth in other areas. I have experience in helping people develop healthier coping skills for stress, anxiety, anger, grief & depression, as well as improve relationships with their children, spouses and extended families. Some of my favorite things to do are to help clients see the good in their lives, then dream of the future and develop practical steps towards achieving those dreams. It is very fulfilling to see people make progress in areas they desire to see change, and to recognize their own strengths!

Stephanie, has been extremely helpful. She listens and gives good advice but not in a pushy way. She lets you talk and feels like a friend who really listens but doesn’t try and tell you what to do.

Stephanie is very attentive and tries to follow up and be as helpful as possible
