About me

My name is Stephanie and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I have 4 years of clinical experience. In 2016 I graduated from Shippensburg University with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then continued at Shippensburg to receive my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, graduating in 2018. I have worked in several treatment settings with different populations to include inpatient behavior health treatment with teens and adults in a psychiatric inpatient setting and inpatient and outpatient substance abuse counseling. While using a variety of therapeutic techniques, I tend to gravitate towards Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused techniques when working with her clients. I also enjoy utilizing holistic approaches to health and wellness and has a unique interest in helping athletes with performance anxiety.

Stephanie is a wonderful person and has been the open ear I need to help me with my anxiety.
