Stephanie believes that therapy doesn’t have to be for those only in crisis. Seeking out counseling can be difficult but one of the best decisions one can make. Stephanie uses an integrative approach to cater to the individualized needs of each client, including psychodynamic, relational, and mindfulness-based techniques to help clients gain awareness of their struggles and learn new coping strategies to be able to effectively deal with whatever life brings.
By exploring both the “why” and the “what” of one’s life experiences, Stephanie focuses on utilizing clients’ strengths to find solutions. Through empowerment, warmth, and a strong therapeutic alliance, Stephanie stresses the importance of building a safe space for her clients to be able to improve their overall well-being.
