Stephanie Niemela


About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida with some Marriage and Family coursework. I have over 10 years of experience. Key areas I've counseled in are: anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and relational issues.

I believe people are resilient, and people can work through adversity. I'm proud to help people on their journey, and deeply value the profession I serve. I am an advocate for all. My approach combines theories and techniques to serve each person best. I believe unconditional positive regard is essential as a framework in the counseling work between myself and a client. I prefer video sessions, and need you to confirm your identity and an emergency contact before sessions. I am comfortable counseling issues related to spiritual matters.
