About me

Hello from Texas! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas with over 15 years of experience working as a Therapist, Clinical Director and Executive Director. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, Chronic mental illness to include bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, sexual abuse, survivors of human trafficking or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and engaging. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, and solution focus with a TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) component.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Since starting with Stephanie, I feel heard, seen and validated. She is always friendly and gives me new suggestions for books or tools I can use to aid my ongoing mental health journey.

Stephanie is great. I’ve recommended friends try to sign up for her to be their therapist when they needed help. She is extremely caring and invested in me and my success. She listens to my goals and lets me set the pace for what I want to work on, while also suggesting what could be important to work on and keeping track of the random things I’ve brought up and been like “but we’ll talk about that another time”. She holds me accountable and is the voice of reason when I need it. All around solid human-being and great therapist.

You should share it with her. I'm a difficult patient, or it feels that way. She is prompt even though I message her mostly in the late hours. She never gets frustrated with my snark or stubbornness. She's just a nice person. I've canceled every video session I ever scheduled and she doesn't shame me at all about it. I'm new to therapy and its sort of like texting a friend. A friend I pay to listen to me complain about my life that isn't that difficult comparatively. I mean she helps people with real problems. But she also helps me with my menial ones. I'm a fan.
