Are you getting married soon and are seeking pre-marital classes? Can you not decide in which direction to take you life, education, and/or career? Does your relationship need work or could be stronger? Does your life currently feel out of whack and unbalanced? Have you been feeling sad, down, or blue lately? If any of these sound like you, then it seems as though we should have a talk. Sometimes, we go through adjustments and phases in life, then needing to discuss or “vent.” That’s okay, too. I am here to help facilitate your journey through change.
My name is Stephanie. I am a nationally certified counselor, dually licensed in Mental Health Counseling as well as a Marriage & Family Therapy. I have been counseling since 2015 and have been in private practice since 2017.
I am best suited to dealing with couples therapy, pre-marital counseling, anxiety, depression, wellness counseling, and individual counseling. I welcome UCF, Valencia, Rollins, and Full Sail college students too. I am also working on a niche with military couples & families, including all the variables and stress factors associated with being or having been in the military. To summarize, I’m a life transition therapist, my goal being to assist with adjusting to any changes. Tambien hablo español.
My counseling approach is to have a comfortable conversation and listen to you. My theoretical orientation, although eclectic, is existentialism mixed with reality therapy. I am EMDR trained, a certified Family Mediator, Prepare/Enrich certified & obtained Gottman level 1 training for couples therapy.
I solely yet conveniently offer TeleHealth Medicine/virtual sessions, which works for clients who cannot make the commute, are traveling out of town, or have other obligations and cannot physically attend session. This has also been advantageous and the preferred method during the COVID pandemic.
