Stephanie is an Associate Clinical Mental Health Counselor. She received her MS from Westminster College, previously getting her BS in Psychology. She has had experience working with suicidal and psychotic adults and adolescents at a behavioral health inpatient unit and with weekly therapy with children and parents. Stephanie enjoys working with children over eight years old and with parents, singly or in couples, to optimize their parenting by including trauma-informed techniques in addition to processing family interactions.
Stephanie views therapy as a gateway to make long-lasting, positive changes in her clients lives and her goal is to help her clients achieve more enriching personal connections within family and other social environments. She strives to create a safe environment for children and adults to explore their own attachment histories and develop relationship patterns that will be more beneficial in their lives.
She incorporates play therapy, Theraplay, Neurosequential Model of Therapy, Attachment-Focused Family Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Trust-Based Relational Interaction (TBRI) techniques in her therapy sessions.
