About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with experience in the social services field for over 10 years. My passion is working with people to help them grow, reach their potential, set healthy boundaries with others, and know their worth. I enjoy working with men and women. I believe that there are times in life when a little extra help and support can be tremendous, and a therapeutic relationship can truly make a difference in a person’s life during those times. In regard to scheduling, I tend to schedule my meetings with people directly as I have limited availability. Please reach out and schedule directly.

If you're looking for an amazing therapist then Stephen is certainly the therapist for you! He has listened and helped me navigate through some very difficult situations... And I haven't even been in therapy that long! He is very thorough and super relatable. Stephen is outstandingly professional and great to work with.

This has really been my first go-around at therapy and I can't thank Stephen enough for having the patience and knowledge in helping me get to a clearer and more mindful place in my life. I have been with him for several months now and it has been quite a journey that I can't express enough has helped me find a more balanced and intentional place in my life. I would 100% recommend Betterhelp to everyone and anyone, but also Stephen Edwards for those looking he can help guide and make therapy for first-timers very manageable and insightful.

Stephen Edwards is a great help. He gets right to what you need to work on, makes sure that you’re working on you and checks up on how everything’s been if you’ve implemented any exercises that were talked about to improve and how they’ve been going. I give big thank you !
