She has been so wonderful. She is objective, a great active listener, empathetic, and offers great counseling in time where I can’t “figure things out in my own”. It’s great to have her in my corner!

Stephanie has been my rock throughout this process. She keeps me grounded yet motivated to reach beyond the boundaries of my anxieties. I am eternally thankful for her help, guidance and especially her compassion. If I could only get a talking doll version of her for when I am not in a session!! Thanks Stephanie for all you do!

Stephanie is an excellent listener and she asks good questions. I feel heard by her - not just listened to, but understood. Her insight has caused many light bulb realizations for me.

After a consult with Stephanie (who was so lovely and helpful), we came to the decision that I require more intensive and in person therapy at this time. She has been wonderful and I highly recommend her!

Written by J.U. on Jun 24, 2020 after therapy with Stephanie for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Stephanie was the most uplifting and positive person I could have been paired with. She is professional, caring and sweet and truly meant to help people. I love her motivational words and she helped me learn so many different things from a new perspective. I’m glad I have had this time with her and I could not be more grateful.

Work with me!
