Stephanie is passionate about journeying alongside adults and adolescents as they experience the difficulties of life transitions and discover who they truly are. People often find themselves in painful relational patterns and spaces of internal suffering that hinder them from living the fulfilled life they desire. Stephanie believes that deeply exploring oneself from a holistic and creative posture is what allows people to authentically live in the freedom of who Gad called each of them to be. She believes that while many of us experience pain as a result of relational wounds, it is only within the context of relationship that true healing can be felt.
Stephanie utilizes a Psychodynamic, Attachment and Relational approach, but incorporates other treatment modalities to cater to the uniqueness of each client.
She enjoys working with people who suffer with the following issues: depression, anxiety, stage of life concerns, attachment issues, early childhood/developmental trauma, unexplained digestive issues, sexuality, spirituality, and relationship distress.
Stephanie is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and a third year candidate at the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute.
