Hi! I am Stephanie, a licensed professional counselor in both Virginia and Colorado. I enjoy working with people who want to move towards change in any area. In addition, I consider it an honor to walk with people who are on a grief journey. I like to treat the whole person; I see myself as a cross between a therapist, life coach, and spiritual director.
I am a good fit for counseling through online chat, because I'm also a writer and can help you find words for the feelings in your heart. I received my master's degree from Colorado Christian University in 1998 and have worked in the counseling field off and on since then, moving to part-time as I began raising my two, beautiful daughters.
Connecting people together is something I do best: hearing all sides of the issue and helping to find the common ground. In addition, I encourage Christians in their faith walk to see the ways God is moving all around them. I like to bring hope and humor to the counseling session; I have seen that laughter and tears are but one step from each other.
Eclectic in methodology, I stay open to how the Holy Spirit is leading and anything that will bring us closer to your treatment goals. I am inter-denominational and work with Christians of all faith traditions. My guiding Bible passages for my personal life as well as my counseling are: John 10:10 and Romans 5:1-2 (MSG). These verses challenge me to live a full life in Christ because of his great sacrifice.
In addition to being a practicing Christian, mother, counselor, and writer, I am also an athlete, mountain lover, and free spirit. Please reach out! I look forward to working with you.
