Hello and congratulations on taking this courageous and hopeful step toward wholeness. My name is Stephanie Risinger and I'm a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist. Don't let the title fool you! Most of my work is with individuals. Being a marriage and family therapist simply means I have a specialized understanding of how our personal struggles and mental health challenges can affect relationships.
I have 13 years of clinical experience in working with a wide range of concerns and mental health challenges. Examples include (but not limited to) grief/loss, life changes, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, infertility, postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, and co-dependency. I received my Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University in 2009. In addition, I served as an adjunct professor of psychology for five years at California Baptist University and has been a featured speaker at numerous community events, organizational meetings, trainings, and retreats.
I look forward to connecting with you.

Stephanie has been very helpful so far I’m my journey ok BetterHelp. He responds in a timely manner and has too insight into the issues I am working through. She offers good worksheets and exercises for me to ponder my own thoughts and provoke conversation in our session that can bring about really concrete active change.
