CMHC - Neurofeedback

Stephanie became a therapist because she always had a heart for people who experience trauma and emotional and physical difficulties. Helping others alleviate emotional suffering, gain positive insight and skills in order to live their best lives is still what drives her 11 years later.

Stephanie graduated with a BA in Social Work in 1997 from Weber State University, and an MS in Mental Health Counseling from University of Phoenix in 2010.

Her areas of expertise include children, adolescents, adults, older adults, couples, and families. She specializes in trauma-focused therapies, DBT, CBT and others, and has specialized training in Neurofeedback, EMDR, A.R.T. and DBT. She has also worked with various individuals and ages who have severe attachment issues. She is a member of the American Counseling Association and is passionate about making sure LGBTQ kids, especially transgender kids, know that they have a place in this world, and they are valued and loved.

Believing that good mental health is a process and something we all need to nurture daily, and listening and seeking to understand is the key to a strong therapeutic relationship. This approach, coupled with her ability to make clients feel at ease, allows her to help individuals of all ages learn to accept themselves, develop and thrive. Clients have said that she is compassionate, honest, insightful, skilled, approachable, safe, and intuitive. They also refer others to her. Her goal has always been to help those she counsels to alleviate emotional suffering, even in the darkest of times.

When not working with clients, she can be found playing her piano, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and taking care of her rescue animals.
