Hello.  I'M Stephanie.

I am right there with you! I juggle my child while drinking cold coffee. I am 5 minutes late because of a needed diaper change as I am leaving the house. I have those intrusive scary thoughts about my child's safety.  

Motherhood can be very difficult, and feeling that way is no reflection of the love you have for your kids. I love working with moms to help them be free from the anxiety and overwhelm and usher in acceptance, grace, and joy!

Education

I received my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Abilene Christian University with a specialization in Medical Family Therapy.  I completed my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Seattle Pacific University with a minor in Individual and Family Development.

Additional Trainings:

Nutritional Psychiatry for Healthcare Providers | The Brain Food Academy

Birth Doula Training Workshop | Bastyr University

Experience

In addition to private practice, I have worked at Seattle Children's Hospital in the cancer care unit.  I am well versed in the medical community and have found this to be highly beneficial while collaborating with other medical providers.  I am a trained Doula which has given me the opportunity to better understand the birthing process and the many different experiences that people have in pregnancy and postpartum.  I have also spent time working with homeless women who are pregnant and postpartum. I have learned a tremendous amount from all of my clients.

Personal

People close to me would say that I am a bit of an old soul who enjoys a slow pace in life.  I enjoy the small things such as cooking dinner, reading with a cup of coffee or walking in our neighborhood park.

 

Outside of the therapy room, you will find me and my husband chasing around our young daughter as she adventures through this world.
