Counseling Approach and Clinical Focus:
Stephanie is LGBTQIA+ affirming and believes in a holistic approach to counseling. Her experience in community mental health, primary care, and Employee Assisted Plans (EAP) counseling gives her a unique insight into how health conditions affect all areas of life. She works with families, couples, and individuals struggling with a variety of stressors such as burnout, depression, life transitions, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship strain and many others.
Stephanie uses techniques that involve Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Approach, Strength-Based, and Mindfulness. She is especially passionate about helping professionals be well in the workplace. Stephanie is one of the few practitioners in the area that works with medical professionals and first responders to help support them in stressful work environments.
A message from Stephanie:
I take an inviting approach to counseling, and collaborate with my clients in their healing. I believe people to be resilient, and know that we all get “stuck” sometimes. I work with my clients to identify their strengths and resources to get “unstuck” and move toward thriving in their lives.
