Couples and Parenting Coach
Stephanie is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC, Illinois), as well as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Couples Coach. She received an M.A. in Professional Counseling from McKendree University in Illinois. Upon graduation, Stephanie worked for Children’s Home and Aid, helping teens and their families in crisis situations. Later, she worked at a community mental health facility serving both mental health and substance abuse clients. She has worked with a diverse population of individuals, couples and families. Much of her experience has been working to help clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, sexuality issues and poor self esteem. Stephanie is passionate about working with couples and families to enhance relationships through improving communication, connection, parenting skills and conflict management. She is currently completing a one year post graduate certification in marriage and family therapy at the Northcentral University in Arizona.
Stephanie approaches each new client with an open mind and a desire to help them reach their own goals. Her hope is to create an accepting, comfortable, compassionate space for clients to feel safe sharing and exploring uncomfortable thoughts and difficult situations. She welcomes all individuals regardless of race, religion or sexuality to her office. Stephanie believes in a holistic approach and uses a combination of counseling techniques (cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, meditation, solution focused, self-awareness, etc.) to tailor therapy to a client’s specific needs, strengths, and abilities. She also uses these techniques to deal with her own life stresses. She enjoys mindful walks, yoga, creating artwork, listening to music and reading to unwind and create positive energy in her own life.
Stephanie is accepting private pay clients for coaching in the areas of couple’s relationship improvement and parent-child relationship improvement.
Stephanie will facilitate a couple’s group workshop on 9/23 to help couples improve communication, conflict management, and connection. Call or email Stephanie at 694-9488 for more details!
