I love her logic, she doesn’t dismiss my worries but she also doesn’t want me to think they are big and scary. It’s nice to have someone listen to my fears and make me feel better about them.

Stephanie has been really great in helping me find tools to better handle my anxiety/panic attacks. She is a great listener and is really funny, kind, and easy going. She takes the time to remember things that I’ve told her about my life, which makes me feel seen. I would highly recommend her!
