“Since beginning my work with Stephanie 3 years ago, I know myself more deeply, I am more confident, I have healthier relationships (both with myself and others), and I feel more grounded in each circumstance life has thrown me. She has been an incredible teacher, coach, and friend through some of the best and some of the most difficult times.”

She is honest, vulnerable, wise, and intuitive, and she provides a safe container to explore emotion and experience without judgment. She listens closely and carefully, and she asks the right questions to point you back to the truth that she gently reminds you is always within yourself. I am so grateful to have been led to her years ago, as working with her has been nothing short of transformative.”

“For over a year now, Stephanie has created and fostered a space where I know I can show up in my raw, truest form. Her ability to understand and relate to complex emotions is absolutely admirable. Stephanie gives an immediate sense of warmth and comfort when we talk because I can tell she is listening with intention. She has a true desire for genuine connection with her clients. Stephanie has sat with me through the darkest of feelings and has shown me the light for life that I have inside of myself. I am forever grateful for Stephanie’s unwavering presence in my life. Hands down one of my favorite people I’ve encountered on life’s journey thus far.”

“This is my third time working with a therapist, but the first time I took my time, did a lot of research and interviewed a small number before hiring one to work with me. It was totally worth all of the work because Stephanie is extraordinary to work with. She is kind, thoughtful, and completely non judgmental. I was instantly comfortable opening up and sharing. She’s a great listener and helps to enlighten new perspectives and new situations. She asks a lot of questions to make sure she fully understands and genuinely cares about helping and improving the lives of others. She is full of love, light and compassion and knows just when you need to be challenged. She’s a treasure, and I’m so grateful to have found her.”

“I’ve worked with Stephanie for around a year and I can honestly say she changed my life. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since I was 12 years old and really have not found good ways to balance it. I found Stephanie after going through a tough breakup with someone I thought I was going to marry. I thought my world was ending and I was never going to get out of this rut I had been in for a LONG, long time. Stephanie helped me work through the grief, helped me truly learn love myself, speak nicely to myself, work through the anxiety, and so much more.” 

Now, after only a year of working with her my life has never been better and I truly believe she is the reason why. This is the first time since I was 12 years old that I have felt truly happy and content with myself and Stephanie definitely and 100% helped me get here and I will forever be grateful for her!”

“I have known Stephanie for almost 5 years now and I have never felt more seen and cared for by anyone I’ve ever met – family included. She truly hears me when I speak about all the ugly parts of my life and I feel safer after opening up to her. She has been available to listen every time I’ve needed her. My life would not be as stable as it is now without her (my life before her had been a maddeningly, cyclical mess). Words cannot express the impact that her warmth and steadfastness has had and continues to have on me. I could go on and on about how amazing Stephanie is, but she is a radiating beauty that is hard to miss.”

-Abby (Doctoral Student), California

“Stephanie has been wonderful to work with. She has been able to teach me how to evaluate, interpret, and communicate my own feelings in a meaningful and constructive manner through tools like cognitive distortions. She has helped me understand what anger can not only do to my own thought processes and reactions resulting from that, but also how it can become consuming and exhausting. Her relaxed style and her understanding of human emotion and how they affect the self and others around have allowed me to become not only a better person, but someone who is more aware of his surroundings and more compassionate towards others in my daily life.”

Additional 5 star reviews from app-based work:

“Talking to Stephanie feels like talking to a good friend who knows me over and over while being able to offer the perspective of a skilled therapist. She approaches whatever is on my mind with an open-minded and compassionate attitude, which has shifted the way I see myself and my life. Also, I feel Stephanie is a very relatable person, as she’s always open or sharing her own personal experiences whenever she recognizes I’m going through something similar. Never thought all those qualities could be found in one counselor.”

“Having Stephanie as a counselor is like hitting the jackpot. I never thought I would be so comfortable with an online therapist and the output would be so positive. She’s helped me so much in such a short period of time and she’s a great relief. She’s passionate and patient, makes you see your problem from a different perspective and makes you finds your own solution. Thank you, Stephanie for being here!”

“Stephanie is a wonderful counselor. She’s thoughtful, inspirational, and really takes the time to listen and respond to everything I write/say. She offers a wide range of helpful suggestions that have made a huge difference and relates on a personal level. Her advice has given me inspiration and hope. Thank you Stephanie.” 

“She has helped me so much with so many problems. It’s been great having someone to talk to that will take the time to know me as a person. She also doesn’t make any assumptions, she asks questions instead to make sure she has her facts in order. It hasn’t even been a full month yet and I feel so much better.”

“Stephanie is outstanding. Over the last few weeks I’ve had sessions over the phone and have written back and forth, and I’m incredibly grateful for her insights and compassion. She’s encouraging, but challenging, and I feel very comfortable opening up to her. I’m so thankful to work with her, as she is wonderful at encouraging reflection and growth.”

“She’s very easy to talk to, and “listens”. She genuinely cares about getting to know me and me getting to know her. My husband has noticed a difference, and I have too, I’ve only been talking to her for a week!” 

“Stephanie is an amazing counselor who is always willing to listen, offer advice, reassure you that you’re on the right path or help you get back on it. I am sincerely appreciative of her.”
