I offer client-centered therapy utilizing the therapeutic tools of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and DBT.
My name is Stephanie and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I work with adult individuals who want more balance in their lives and to improve their relationship with themselves and others. The clients I work with want to understand how to feel better, how to think more productively, and how to utilize their strengths in a way that will bring them closer to their goals. As a therapist, I am committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for all individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Central to my practice are the principles of anti-racism, LGBTQ+ allyship, and a feminist perspective.

If you’re experiencing anxiety or trauma, I can help. Trauma, particularly from early childhood can have a deep impact on your self-esteem, relationships and functioning. You may struggle with perfectionism, people pleasing or codependency. Your nervous system may be dsyregulated which can lead to feeling flooded with emotions and or exhausted. This can lead to adaptions which may have serious consequences. Some interventions I use with clients include EMDR, Internal Family Systems, somatic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, art, sandplay and play therapy. Which interventions are based on your preferences and fit.

Anxiety sucks. I get it. It can keep you stuck in an exhausting inner battle of fear and panic. Perhaps you have had a panic attack and worry about having another one. Or maybe you find yourself frequently worrying about your relationship with your partner. Obsessive thoughts might be keeping you up at night and disrupting your ability to focus at work. And you might feel frustrated or embarrassment that you can't get your anxiety under control. You might be trying to cope with your anxiety by staying busy, distracting yourself with technology, or turning to drugs or drinking. The good news is, it does not have to be this way.

My approach emphasizes respect, transparency, authenticity, and collaboration. I believe that most problems exert their influence on people by blinding them to their own strengths, resources and potential solutions. Problems can saturate people's lives in complex and expansive ways. As a curious outsider with training and experience, I work with clients to debunk dysfunctional assumptions, and to challenge problem-inspired patterns. It's an honor to witness and support clients, as they practice living more consistently with their articulated values and goals, progressing towards more preferred ways of being.

My name is Alexander Warnow and I'm the founder of XY Counseling. At XY we work primarily with adults, teens, and couples helping them to live more fulfilling, connected lives. Often what brings someone to seek therapy is a chronic issue that has reached a crisis point: anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth, intimacy problems, communication issues and many more. Sometimes it is a recent change in one's life: infidelity, a move, or the end of a relationship. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road towards healing and growth. Our therapists include Jacob Donnelly, Stacey Klein and Walker Witte.

As your therapist, I will help you address the challenges that are holding you back from creating the life you want. Many times this involves simple, guided questions that explore how you came to feel the way you feel and why you do the things you do. I utilize a relational framework when working with adults and older teens. Research has shown that the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship you have with your therapist. The modalities change over time, but the need to experience trust in examining your inner landscape is essential and unwavering.
