            Stephanie takes a warm, holistic approach to counseling, drawing primarily on person-centered and cognitive-behavioral techniques. She believes in the power of vulnerability in the pursuit of freedom and authenticity, and these values inform her therapeutic presence and decisions. In Stephanie’s experience, counseling is most effective when it is a collaborative process. Her desire is to meet you where you are and to be a source of truth and encouragement as you journey together. As your counselor, she will do her best to help you identify your values, set and meet your goals, and face your fears.
