Stephanie is passionate about getting to the "root" of the issue with the goal of truly healing and being able to move forward in life and face challenges. This goal is achieved in sessions by utilizing traditional talk therapy, art and expressive therapy, and Traumatic Incident Reduction to achieve individualized goals. Traumatic Incident Reduction sessions focus on one memory per session, and the client will experience relief to of symptoms by the end of the session.
Stephanie currently has transitioned to full time private practice, and has openings for virtual sessions during the day as well as a few evening slots. Stephanie believes that virtual sessions allow the client to prioritize their mental health and overall wellbeing, without having to deal with the extra barriers that may come with going to therapy (driving to appointments, childcare, work), and impact ones ability to commit to bettering themselves.
