Stephanie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Journeys Counseling Ministry. 

Stephanie believes that the relationship between the therapist and the client is the foundation for growth and healing. She has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults as they deal with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, relationship struggles, and eating disorders. 

Stephanie strives to provide a safe space for people to discover who they are and to connect to how their pain and struggle has shaped them. Ultimately, her methods aim to help individuals experience a reduction of problematic symptoms, an improvement in their relationships, and a more fulfilling life. Prior to her time at Journeys, she spent 10 years working with children with autism and their families, specializing in Applied Behavior Analysis. She and her husband have three young boys.
