About Stephanie

I have taken a meandering path in my career, starting as a technical writer in Washington, D.C., serving in the U.S. Peace Corps for two years, then completing a master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology at Naropa University in Boulder, CO. I’ve been a licensed professional counselor (LPC) since 2012 and worked with children, families and adults in a variety of settings, including schools, in-home services, community mental health and substance abuse centers and also in an outpatient medical office.

Like most therapists, I enlist a mix of approaches in my work, but I find that above all else, the relationship between therapist and client is the most effective agent for change. I believe in being a staunch advocate for my client and taking their goals for therapy very seriously. Sometimes that means challenging the way clients think and act and helping them to consider different perspectives.

Throughout my travels both in the U.S. and abroad, I have experienced many different cultures and I believe those experiences have expanded my world view and allowed me to maintain an attitude of perpetual learning-through reading and education, through life experiences and most especially, from relationships with others, both personally and professionally.
