(MA, LPCC, LPC)

About Me

As a Christian, I studied professional counseling at Liberty University in Virginia and learned an integrative approach to treatment. Spirituality is such an essential part of my everyday life, that I believe any services I provide should also bring faith to the session. Utilizing Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused therapy, while integrating spirituality is effective as I walk alongside my clients in their journey and sometimes sit with them in their pain. Throughout my life, I have faced challenges that tested my faith in great ways. Drawing on Scripture and processing my thoughts and feelings with others of like faith has been essential to overcoming adversity.

Sessions may involve prayer, scripture reading, and recommendations for reading as I believe the work we do extends beyond the sessions to our everyday lives and we must practice our faith and what we learn in order to walk through the valleys and rejoice on the mountaintop. Depending on your level of comfort with integrating faith into the sessions and what techniques you find helpful, we can develop goals to successfully overcome life's challenges and live our best lives.

Written by K.A. on May 31, 2021 after counseling with Stephanie for 1 month

Stephanie is an amazing counselor. If you are a believer in Christ, who wants sound godly wisdom Stephanie is the right one! She uses scripture throughout sessions and even includes prayers in the sessions. I love how she always intently listens and uses my own words/beliefs to remind or challenge me. I like how she provides resources to help me and always ensures me she’s just a message away. If you are looking for a woman who will pray with you, reaffirm you with the Word, and walk beside you in your journey with the Lord, Stephanie is it!!
