Professional statement

Dr. Stephanie Freitag is a licensed clinical psychologist working with patients across five different states. She trained at Binghamton SUNY (State University of New York) for her PhD in clinical psychology and at the Emory School of Medicine for her predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship. Throughout her training, Stephanie specialized in trauma, personality disorders, and mood disorders (bipolar disorder, depression, PMDD). Dr. Freitag's advice has been featured in a variety of news outlets including Seventeen Magazine, Healthline, Insider, Psychology Today, and Mic.

As a trauma-informed psychologist, Stephanie cares deeply about providing a warm and safe space that is comfortable, supportive, and collaborative. Throughout your time in therapy, Stephanie hopes that she can help you reflect on your values so that you can work towards what it means to be your "best self." While she uses common evidence-based approaches (such as CBT and DBT), Stephanie tailors her treatment to each individual with a focus on symptoms rather than a given disorder. She believes in treating the whole person, which includes your unique social context and history. Ultimately, she believes that therapy is a space to sit with a wide variety of emotions and to make meaning from these experiences.

Outside of her clinical work, Stephanie is an adjunct professor at the Emory School of Medicine where she participates in advocacy and research. She has published numerous peer-reviewed articles and chapters on bipolar disorder, trauma, and intimate partner violence. She is passionate about fighting stigma associated with mental illness and engaging in various initiatives to advocate for her patients.


Message to clients

I offer individual therapy to adolescents and adults of a wide variety of ages. While I display a typical fee range for my practice, I am willing to slide in extenuating circumstances. I do not take insurance but I can generate a monthly superbill for you that is submittable to insurance.

Of note, the initial session is an intake session, which is generally more structured so I can properly assess and determine a treatment plan. From there, we will work collaboratively throughout our time together.

Please don't hesitate to reach out for a free brief consultation to see if we would be a good match!
