Stephanie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Oregon.

Psychotherapy for adults, couples, and adolescents.
Stephanie is a client-centered, eclectic, humanistic-existential therapist. She is warm, spontaneous, intuitive and direct. Her emphasis is first and foremost on building a genuine, well-attuned therapeutic relationship that can safely support your growth. She then draws from an eclectic range of trauma-informed and culturally sensitive interventions influenced by attachment theory, psychodynamics, somatics, transpersonal psychology, existentialism, gestalt, neurobiology and ecology.
As your therapist, Stephanie may encourage you to:
- identify and express thoughts, feelings and sensations directly;
- accept and embrace all parts of yourself, reducing shame and stigma;
- expand your range of access to the different parts of yourself, conscious and unconscious;
- incorporate all aspects of your well being into your healing process;
- take action on the changes you know you need to make in your life;
- examine your relationship patterns, your worldview, and your spirituality;
- challenge the limiting belief systems and thought patterns that keep you stuck;
- notice and incorporate bodily sensations, breath, and movement;
- check out books, videos, and podcasts between sessions;
- use journaling and worksheets;
- try new communication techniques with your loved ones;
- substitute healthier behaviors in place of self-destructive ones;
- and make positive changes in your sleeping, eating, exercise, and other aspects of self-care.
Stephanie specializes in working with adolescent girls and young women who are recovering from abusive relationships, overcoming codependency, or learning to find their voices and trust their intuition. She is comfortable discussing taboo subjects and abnormal experiences, and is an intersectional feminist ally passionate about offering empowering and non-pathologizing services to individuals who feel marginalized, including ethnically diverse clients, LGBTQ, polyamorous, and transgender individuals and families.
During my free time I enjoy hiking, dancing, playing music, working out, cooking, drinking tea, and spending quality time with friends and loved ones.
