Stephanie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with more than 10 years of experience working with children, teens and young adults.
While Stephanie sees kids of all ages, she has a particular interest in counseling teens and their families. Adolescence is a turbulent period of time for many, as teens separate from their family of origin and struggle with issues around identity. Stephanie is skilled at helping families navigate this challenging season of life.
Trauma is another major area of Stephanie’s clinical expertise. She is trained in EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which has been scientifically proven to help clients recover from a wide variety of traumatic events. She is in the process of becoming a certified EMDR therapist.
In addition to EMDR, Stephanie draws from a number of other therapy models and approaches, including Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Since 2006, Stephanie has provided counseling for teens and young adults through the public school system and local non-profit agencies. She provides pro bono therapy through A Home Within so that former foster youth have access to quality mental health care.
A Bay Area native, Stephanie has worked for non-profit agencies, including The Bill Wilson Center, Seneca Center, Habitat for Humanity, San Jose Family Homeless Shelter and Church on the Hill. Stephanie has also provided counseling for the Santa Clara Unified School District.
In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their three children.
