I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 20 years of experience working with individuals, groups, and families. I have worked with clients who were survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault, including survivors of human trafficking, as well as individuals who have varied concerns regarding depression, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy issues, family concerns, sexual difficulties, work and life balance struggles, career challenges, and parenting issues. I have also had many years of experience helping those who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is relaxed and professional. I am warm and inviting with a focus on building rapport to encourage a therapeutic and working relationship. Treating the client with dignity and respect is a priority. I have an appreciation for individual uniqueness and encourage all clients to bring their personal life experience and knowledge into sessions. I have traveled and have worked with clients from varying cultures and acknowledge the beauty of cultures and ethnic backgrounds. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and trauma-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Choosing to take an active role in making changes in your life is admirable and takes courage. I welcome you to your new beginning and will support you as you take the first and most important steps in having the life you deserve.
I look forward to working with you!

Stephanie Ritcherson is knowledgable, smart and compassionate. I appreciate working with her. She has a breadth of experience.
I've only known Stephanie a short while, but our communication has been great. She seems to really understand and listen to what I am going through and she has eased me into the world of therapy - this is my first experience. I'm looking forward to our future conversations. I feel less isolated in my own mind knowing that she is there for me and is available to talk, listen, and work through things. She's in my corner.
I have only recently started seeking help for what I have been struggling with for a long time. The U.K. healthcare waiting lists for therapy are 1yr+ and I had really hit a wall, my friend recommended this platform to me and within 24h I was matched with Stephanie. I have had 3 therapy sessions with her, look forward to my sessions, and am noticing a change in the way I think already. I really can’t recommend Stephanie enough- she is amazing!
