Who does Stephanie work with?

I work with multiple populations from children to seniors.  I focus on the whole person and the strengths that they have to develop resiliency to overcome the challenges they may be facing.  I have worked with people that have PTSD/Trauma histories, life transitions and people who just want to explore themselves in a different way.  With children I have experience with autism, behavior issues, emotional regulation and expression, ADD/ADHD.  With all populations I am experienced with mental health issues as well as substance use issues.

Do you take insurance?

I am a provider for Wellcare, CMS and Staywell. 

What is it exactly that Stephanie does when working with someone in therapy?

First and most importantly I hold a safe space and I listen.  I explore with you what your needs are and what you would like to get out of the therapy sessions. I am trained as a counselor and as an art therapist also incorporating the expressive arts.

What is art therapy? Do I have to be an artist to participate?

Art therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.

Art therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change. (American Art Therapy Association)

You do not need ANY artistic experience to participate in art therapy.

What are the expressive arts?

Expressive arts therapy is a multimodal approach to therapy.  Expressive arts therapy may incorporate writing, drama, dance, movement, painting, and/or music. ... A person is not required to have artistic ability to use or benefit from expressive arts therapy.

Can I just talk?

Absolutely, as a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern, Board Certified Art Therapist and Registered Yoga Teacher, my training is in both counseling and art therapy as well as yoga.  This means that I am completely open to having a traditional talk therapy session and I am a gifted listener. During this type of session, I will listen, focus on strengths-based approach and facilitate evidenced based approaches to assisting you as needed. This can include cognitive behavior therapy, resiliency building and trauma processing.

What is the process for getting started working with Stephanie?

Schedule a call here to discuss what you are looking for, ask me any questions and see if we are a fit to work together. We then agree on a fee for services and if it is a yes, schedule your first appointment, I will send you paperwork via email or you can come in early to fill it out.

Tele-Health

I am also available to do tele-health counseling where we would be in a secure application and be able to see each other on camera while having our session.

What if I need to cancel, will I be charged?

If you cancel at least 24 hours before the start of your appointment you will not be charged, anything after that you will be charged a 25 dollar cancellation fee. 

How does a typical session go?

You arrive at the office or are n front of your computer or device.  I invite you to have some water or other beverage with you such as hot tea which we offer in the office.  Once you are settled in a comfortable space, we begin the session.  I will hold the space for you to talk, discuss and explore your reasons and concerns for entering therapy.  We will work together in a way that is right for you to move through whatever your situation might be. We will have time for closure to ensure that you are ready to re-enter the outside world.

How often do I need to see Stephanie?

That is up to you and based on what you are working on and your ability to prioritize the investment in yourself.  We can work out a plan that will get you to where you want to be, sometimes brief therapy is all that is needed, sometimes trauma work may take more time.
