I enjoy working with people from all different walks of life, whether they are simply looking to improve a part of themselves, or they have hit a major bump in the road. I actively assist clients who are struggling with relationship-based problems, and I have specialized training and experience in treating sexual assault, parental grief, and post-traumatic stress. In addition to my licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, Board Certified Bereavement Counselor, Certified Sexual Assault Counselor, Certified Trauma Response Specialist, and a Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.
I believe my clients already possess the answers they need, and I empower them to search for their internal strengths and learn how to use them to overcome their personal challenges. My greatest joy is watching a client reap the benefits of active participation in therapy!
As an adjunct to traditional therapy, I also facilitate therapeutic groups, parenting classes, and psycho-educational workshops from time to time. I hope you will give me a call so we can talk in person I would enjoy having the opportunity to work with you!

Stephanie was truly empathic and genuinely seemed to care about my daughter and myself. She wasn't afraid to make suggestions, but she was also honest about what she could and couldn't do, which was refreshing. I know this is a process, but with Stephanie's guidance, I trust that my daughter and I will be ok.
Stephanie made sure every question I had was answered, and she has been available whenever I've thought of any more questions I need answered. She is warm and professional, which made the whole experience easier and less anxiety-provoking. I was so impressed with how much I came away with after just one visit. All my questions were answered, and I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future. The office was very easy to locate. I didn't have any trouble finding it at all. I will absolutely return.
