It's hard to find a therapist. Especially when you're not feeling your best. I applaud you for getting this far. Now it's time to invest in your relationship with yourself. I know what it’s like to feel alone with your problems. Maybe you have no one to talk to. Or maybe you feel bad making your friends, your family, or your partner listen to your problems again. I know what that feels like, and I’m here. I’m ready to listen. It’s time to let go of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. I want to process these things with you. You don’t have to go through this alone anymore.

"Be the best of what humanity has to offer".I love being a therapist and this quote inspires me as a person and in my craft. My ideal client understands that therapy is hard work and is intent on finding joy despite difficult circumstances and past childhood pain. As a therapist, I enjoy working with clients who value being challenged. I enjoy working with those individuals and families that need treatment for addictions, ADHD, marital difficulties and spiritual concerns.

Overwhelmed? Everyone needs help occasionally through life transitions. Do you have trouble saying no? Do you feel like you do not value yourself enough or have difficulty setting boundaries? Do you have traumatic or abusive experiences (or episodes of panic)? Do you overanalyze things? I have extensive helping experience with these and other issues. I work to get to the root of these issues.

It’s hard fighting your thoughts. Some days they feel so heavy and intense that you end up spiraling. Sometimes you don't even know if you can trust your own judgment. It just seems like good doesn’t last and more pain is always on the way. Sound familiar? Are you struggling to overcome toxic self-talk and intrusive thoughts? Are you tired of wildly fluctuating emotions that you can't control? Are your relationships suffering? You wonder, what's wrong with me? Why am I so easily triggered? Life shouldn't be this hard.

I provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy services. Though I understand the value of "diagnosing" a person's particular problem, I'm definitely against labeling a person as such. A person's difficulties--you name it: anxiety, trauma, depression--is what it means in part to be human. Everyone has some type of challenge, to various degrees (and certainly, some more than others). What a client requires, in many cases, is adequate resolution about negative things that has happened to him or her in life. Also, clients often need new skills in dealing with life's current and future expected challenges.

It’s okay to say, "I'm not okay." If trying to return to “normal life” post pandemic is harder than you thought & you’re sad or anxious and not sure why- you are not alone. Life is messy but good therapy ends. Maybe your life looks nothing like it did two years ago & you’re reeling and only now catching your breath and struggling to breathe. Maybe your life looks the same and you feel different but you’re stuck, overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What we allow will continue & lasting change requires work. Often starting the work & reaching out is a daunting task but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us.

I treat all sorts of mental disorders including depression, anxiety, panic, OCD, PTSD, Adult Aspergers Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder , Substance abuse, relationship and family issues.
Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

Stephanie works from a strengths-based perspective and is a compassionate, seasoned clinician specializing in disorders such as Bipolar Disorder , ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD, Addictions, Trauma, Life Transitions, Depression, and Anxiety.
Each client comes to therapy for different reasons. Your unique challenges, background, strengths, and life experiences will guide me as we collaborate on treatment goals and explore how to reach them. My first task is to practice active listening and nonjudgmental curiosity as we get to know one another. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can provide the space for healing, growth, and improved mental health. Therapists are human, too, and we are constantly learning as we go. This is why I see clients as creative partners, not patients. We are in this unique process together.

Are you struggling to balance the demands of work and your family? Maybe you're feeling stressed out and anxious about your finances. Or, you and your partner are constantly arguing about money, and you're struggling to instill a strong work ethic in your kids. So, as a family, you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, and discouraged. Perhaps, you're a man trying to cope with the pressures of being a "breadwinner" and the added stress of being a great dad at the same time. Trying to please the guidelines society has set for you while also staying true to your own values and beliefs can be overwhelming.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
