Congrats on taking that step to begin your online therapy journey with us!! My name is Stephanie and I'm a licensed clinical mental health counselor from Salt Lake. I received my Bachelor's degree in psychology from scenic Southern Utah University (go T-birds!) and received my Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from La Salle University in Philadelphia (Go birds again!).
The majority of my post-Master's work Is with addiction and dual diagnosis so lots of depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. I've also been heavily involved in marriage and family counseling as well as coaching life skills and effective communication.
I am very CBT and behavior-oriented but I also know connecting and having a good relationship with your therapist is key and my job Is to help you feel comfortable and ready for change. With that being said, a good therapist will also call you out on your challenges and hang-ups and that can be a difficult but very rewarding experience. I love getting creative with my therapy techniques and interventions because it makes therapy more fun and why couldn't it be?
I wish the best of luck to you on this journey! You deserve it!!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Stephanie Young. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Stephanie has helped to change my life for the better. She provided amazing tools and was there to chat when I needed someone to talk to. When I started therapy, I was in a very sad mental state. But now, I can happily say that I feel confident in myself and I can do anything I put my mind to. Thank you for everything Stephanie, it's been a pleasure.

I was hesitant to put my trust in an online mental health professional. So I was skeptical at first. After a few sessions, I started to gain a bit of rapport with Stephanie and she has challenged me to make positive changes. I support Stephanie and endorse her as well.

Stephanie is super caring and understands what I've been through. She's friendly and nonjudgemental, I can talk to her about anything.

She has been so helpful with helping me see what i need to work on, and giving me resources outside of therapy. I feel like i know myself better than I ever have since working with Stephanie.
