Hello! My name is Stefanie. As a military veteran, geek, and gamer turned professional counselor, my aim is to bring a fresh and modern take to the therapeutic space. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment for individuals to live long and prosperous lives while making lasting changes.
I utilize various evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. My style employs a strengths based, client-centered approach, valuing the unique perspectives and experiences of each individual. As a veteran, I have a unique understanding of the complexities being military affiliated brings and an intimate understanding of the challenges that military members face. I also enjoy incorporating elements of geek and gaming culture, such as references to popular media or hobbies, into therapy sessions to build rapport and promote engagement.
I like to say that I have lived a hundred lives. I believe it is that unique blend of experiences, perspectives, and training that allows me to connect with individuals from all walks of life, helping them overcome their challenges with empathy and understanding.
