Are you feeling overwhelmed with your life?
Are you struggling in your relationships? 
Are you feeling as though your career isn’t as fulfilling as you thought it would be?
 
Hi, I’m Stephanie.  I’m committed to helping you find the answers to all your questions and to explore all the factors that you think are holding you back in life. I truly believe that every goal can be met as long as you take it one step at a time and trust your gut along the way.
 
  ABOUT ME
 
I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and for the past 18 years I have acquired extensive experience with both adolescents and adults struggling with a variety of debilitating obstacles, such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, self-harmful behaviors, sexual abuse, adoption issues, addiction, career challenges, grief, and trauma. In the past, I have served as both a therapist and administrator within residential treatment facilities and community mental health organizations in Los Angeles. I currently have a private practice in Culver City where I see adolescents and adults struggling with a wide variety of issues.
 
   
MY APPROACH
 
We are all unique, and I believe that the work we do together needs to be just as unique. I use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-focused therapy, along with compassion, respect (and sometimes humor!) to help facilitate change and growth. In addition to being a therapist, I am also a Certified Integrative Wellness Coach, which allows me to work with clients in a very strategic and goal-oriented manner. I see my role as your tour guide towards a better understanding of yourself and those around you.

  TYPICAL SESSION 
 
I work in a very collaborative way with clients. As you are the expert on your life, you steer the ship while I guide you. Sitting in a warm and cozy office, we will explore where your thoughts, feelings, anxieties, and beliefs stem from and then together we’ll find ways to replace any negative or limiting beliefs with healthier patterns of thinking. When appropriate, I might assign “homework” to further your growth while away from our sessions. It’s most important to me that my clients feel safe and supported during their sessions and I take pride in my ability to do that.
 
  BENEFITS OF COUNSELING 
 
Coming to therapy and opening yourself up is not easy and nobody would do it if there weren’t benefits involved. Being able to improve your communication with loved ones, get some relief from your anxiety or depression and increase your coping skills are just a few of the benefits that you will see from our work together. No matter what struggles you are dealing with, we will work on letting go of the things that are weighing you down and preventing you from fully enjoying your life. If you work with me, you will feel validated, respected, challenged, but most of all understood. I will be by your side supporting you the entire time.
