I am a mental health therapist licensed in New York with an extended amount of experience working with couples, children, family and adolescents. I have worked with clients with various concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, trauma, anger management and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you. Let's do this together.
I look forward to working with you!

Stephanie is an amazing person to speak to about anything. She is truly caring and understands every single thing that I can say and remembers it all. She is very good at putting the pieces together and understanding what the situation is. I’m confident in her and I am so happy I met her. She is like no other person, I have ever spoken to about my problems. I really look forward to continuing my services with BetterHelp.
