My name is Stephanie, and I'm a licensed clinical social worker living in North Carolina. I have been practicing professionally since 2018, and have experienced working with children, adults, families and couples, in settings that include private practice, school-based, agency and crisis work. My favorite part of being a clinician is having the privilege of witness folks learn and develop their own strengths and truths, and become holistically healthier, more empowered, and more in control of their own lives.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other. Prepare to tell your story in a space where you be heard and understood, not judged, rushed or silenced. Feel free to ask me any questions about the process, and let me know any specific needs or preferences. The first session is always a lot of questions, and can be cathartic as well as uncomfortable. Knowing who you are, where you're coming from, as well as what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, will help us work together to make an actionable plan that will address the goals that you have.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I'm a human, just like you are, and the feedback I've gotten that I've been most proud of is that I am able to see people for the best parts of themselves, and not judge them for the roughest parts. I've worked with folks from all walks of life, and am a firm believer that we all have the capacity to learn and grow as long as we are willing to do the work. Understanding, hearing and seeing folks and providing applicable life skills is something that I'm passionate about - because we all deserve to be known, and we all deserve to live a life that we are proud of and fulfilled by.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Many of the folks I've worked with are resistant to therapy or haven't seen benefits from traditional talk therapy in the past. CBT provides actionable tools that people can learn and use in their daily lives to help improve patterns in thoughts, relationships, and communication. I've utilized CBT techniques with folks of all ages, from young children to individuals up into their eighties. It's never too late - or too early - to find new tools for your toolbox!

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness is being aware of your own internal processing and impartially observing your surroundings, an important skill and practice that is critical to learn. So many behavioral health symptoms are related to our nervous system and brain functioning, and learning how all of those systems interact and how to have more control over them is a powerful tool to fight against sometimes debilitating symptoms of anxiety, depression, and impulsivity.
