Welcome to my website! My office is located in Decatur, GA, an intown suburb of Atlanta and part of the Atlanta Metropolitan Area, near Emory University at the intersection of Clairmont and North Decatur Road.

As a therapist, I am non-judgmental, empathic, and goal oriented. I have an outgoing personality and a direct, expressive communication style. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples and families.

I have a treatment philosophy based in interpersonal, systemic, and cognitive behavioral theories. I strive to create a collaborative relationship with my clients and build upon the strengths my clients already have. I strongly believe that everyone can change, and the first step to change is awareness. I teach my clients how their emotions are connected with their thoughts, behavior, and relationships. I help my clients to make any necessary changes within themselves or in their relationships in order to live their best lives.

Stephanie is a warm and engaging therapist. She made me feel comfortable talking about very difficult things, and had a great sense of humor, too, which helped make the whole therapy thing a little less intimidating

Individual Therapy

Through one-on-one meetings, you can work towards understanding yourself, seeing your strengths, and overcoming your obstacles – and make decisions that bring you closer to the person you want to be, the relationships you wish to have, and the life you want to live.

Couples Therapy

Through a series of private sessions, you and your partner can develop healthy ways to resolve conflicts, find compassion, nurture each other and get what you need from your relationship.

  • Pre-Engagement & Premarital Therapy -  I offer time-limited, structured therapy for couples who are considering engagement or marriage.

Family Therapy

Each family is unique. There are a variety of family structures and life styles that can create a "family". Sessions with family members can improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is often short term, and may include all family members or just those most able to participate. Family therapy sessions teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you're done going to therapy sessions.
