Hello! My name is Stephanie (she/her). I am so glad you're here and am looking forward to helping you along your journey. Whether you are going through a difficult period or need someone to lend an ear, together we can tackle anxiety, trauma, and life transitions.
My goal is to help you take committed actions toward and cultivate your life worth living. I tailor my therapy sessions to each individual's needs and goals by using a client-centered and strengths-based perspective. In our sessions together, I strive to cultivate and provide a non-judgmental brave space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, past experiences, present concerns, and hopes for the future.
I am an EMDR Certified Therapist through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and offer EMDR therapy as well as EMDR Intensives. I also incorporate principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into our EMDR sessions.
I am currently licensed in Michigan (LMSW) and Illinois (LCSW).
I also have experience guiding all-level yoga classes as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). I have extensive trauma training experience, including being a Certified Clinical Trauma Practitioner (CCTP).
You are the expert in you. Together, we can make your therapy journey a collaborative effort.
