My passion for counseling started when one of my loved ones was diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder. Seeing a family member suffer on a daily basis made me want to help other individuals facing similar struggles. I know that when times get hard, you may start to feel alone, but you no longer have to feel that way. As a therapist, I hope to guide and support you through the challenges that you may be facing. My role is to assist you in reaching your therapy goals by providing non-judgmental support and helping to facilitate your journey.

Life changing events bring emotional struggles such as grief, loss and other challenges. Adults may find themselves questioning and asking "Who am I now?" and "Where do I go from here?". Children, preteens and teens may find themselves navigating through new emotions and experiences as they grow and change. The need to explore and understand these new landscapes is critical to making positive and sometimes difficult decisions regarding self expression and life choices. Overall goals often included finding relief of inner conflict, developing confidence and experiencing growth.

Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” This quote resonates with me because, as a therapist, I have had the privilege of walking alongside people during times when they have felt alone, vulnerable, or overwhelmed. With my help, they learn to “listen” to their emotions and gain more control. So often, when we are alone during a difficult time, our ability to see beyond such challenges becomes compromised. Our vision narrows and hope dims. But through the collaborative efforts of the client and the therapist, healing, growth, and change can happen. Hope is restored.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Stephanie Rauch, PhD, , LPC
My specialties are post traumatic stress issues, chronic pain, and enhancing sports performance. I work primarily with adults. My past experience as a world ranked professional tennis player gives me insight to work with high school, collegiate and professional athletes. I work from a depth model, which encourages self-exploration in service of healing. The exploration helps clients become conscious of long standing coping mechanisms that may no longer be as valuable as they once were. Learning what you do that blocks happiness empowers you to make choices that lead to a satisfying life.

We all long for connection & belonging, & positive relationships play an essential role in helping us live happy, fulfilling lives. But old wounds and communication styles often keep us from finding satisfaction in our current relationships, leaving us feeling stuck & disillusioned. Life also has a way of pulling the rug from under our feet at times and we find ourselves feeling lost, broken, & questioning how we reached this point in our story.

Everyone faces challenges in life that can feel overwhelming and can impact us in very significant and unique ways. Has depression, anxiety, anger, or stress become seemingly insurmountable to the point that it impacts your daily functioning? Have you noticed a change in your eating or sleeping habits, in your relationships or desire to interact with others? If this is how life feels to you right now, its time to seek help and guidance. You don't have to face this on your own and assistance begins with a phone call or email.
