I am licensed in New Mexico with 5 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with motivation, anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem and confidence, relationship issues, parenting, career and education challenges, coping with life changes, and life coaching.
My passion is helping others recognize and reach their potential. For the last 30 years, I have done that through my work in education. However, since earning my Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree, I have been working in my rural community to provide much-needed mental health services.
I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania...if you've never had the pleasure of visiting the area, watch the movie Witness with Harrison Ford. Quite a bit of it was shot in my hometown. Of course, like many people, I did not appreciate the uniqueness of my upbringing while growing up there. As a military wife, I have lived in quite a few places across the country and do my best to bloom wherever I am planted!
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I take an eclectic approach to counseling--getting to know my clients and meeting them where they are. Then, drawing from multiple therapy approaches, we collaboratively develop a plan to meet those needs using a faith-based perspective.
I believe you are the expert of your story and have many God-given strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. If you are ready, I am here to support you in that process. I look forward to working with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Stephanie Ferguson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
She is kind, respectful, honest and knowledgeable.
I am so blessed with Dr. Ferguson. She’s very knowledgeable with all aspects of understanding the healing process from emotional and toxic mindsets
