Written on Jan 26, 2023 after therapy with Stephanie for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

For a long time I tried to work through my post relationship issues alone with little improvement, working with Stephanie had helped me crawl out of a bad place and helped me uncover other things that I didn’t even realize were contributing to my day to day struggles. She’s helped me start taking control to create necessary distance between myself and others who don’t impact me positively and stand up for myself in a beneficial manner. She’s helped me see how my toxic relationship was not a reflection of me or because of me, but rather someone who took advantage of me. I’m still working, but with help I’ve come a long way from where I was.

Stephanie is an outstanding listener that provides great insight towards every topic of discussion. I’ve had difficulty in the past finding someone that both listens attentively and gives quality advice, not just sit there and “I see” me to death. She has restored my faith in mental well-being and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Written on Jan 07, 2023 after therapy with Stephanie for 4 weeks on issues concerning grief, and coping with life changes

She is spectacular at what she does, acknowledging and understanding why I am feeling the way that I do, and mechanisms and strategies to cope with this burden, stress, and frustration going on internally. Truly very good at what she does, and I plan on scheduling more with her.

Written on Jan 01, 2023 after therapy with Stephanie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, and adhd

Stephanie is a very polite and respectful therapist. However, she didn’t really try to connect with me. She asked a couple questions and then assumed all my issues were from this one specific person without asking. I feel that she is good at what she does, just not the match for me.

Speaking to Stephanie feels like talking to a friend and even though I have only been speaking with her for a short period of time, I feel that she understands and gets the larger picture of who I am without even diving that deep into it all yet.

In my 2 sessions with Stephanie, she has been very helpful by helping me understand what changes in my life I should be looking to make and I should be focusing on myself first. Understanding that I can't improve my relationship until I improve myself and lean to take care of myself first, which has always been very hard for me to do. I have always put myself last.

Stephanie has been so great at helping me unpack some of my major beliefs that I’ve developed over time that have hindered me from doing what makes me happy or from being as confident as I could be. She validates my feelings and challenges me to think more positively about myself. These last 6 months have been so eye opening and she really got me through a difficult break up.
