Throughout the highs and lows, we experience different emotions. Sometimes they can be confusing, difficult to process, or even difficult to identify. Therapy can help.

This is the next step in your journey. Let’s get started.

The journey continues.

Healing is a journey that starts one breath, one step, one moment at a time. This is the next step in your journey. Let’s get started.

my counseling philosophy

Collaborative

I am bringing my education and experience, but you will always be the expert on you. We will work together to explore your challenges and strengths and to identify better paths toward your goals.

Intentional

You are ready for change. I want to help. From our initial consultation to your therapy graduation, I act with purpose, providing a balance of care, support, and challenge in all of our interactions.

Hopeful

I have seen some of the toughest situations and I have hope even when you struggle to do so. When we can't make lemonade out of the lemons life gives us, it helps to have someone sit with us as we heal.

my bio

Stephany is an EMDR-trained Licensed Professional Counselor Associate with experience supporting adolescents, adults, couples, and families in individual and group counseling.  She is qualified to counsel a variety of challenges including trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and identity concerns. 

Stephany also enjoys working with young adults, first generation college students, sibling suicide loss survivors and people who seek to heal their relationship with money. She has advanced training in couples therapy, intimate partner violence, sexual
assault, and suicide intervention + bereavement of suicide loss survivors.

Having recently relocated to Austin, Texas, Stephany was born in Dallas where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Political Science with a minor in Sociology from Southern Methodist University (SMU) with dreams of pursuing justice in law. While working full-time in higher education administration, she completed a graduate certificate in Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management. This unexpected journey provided invaluable insights that shaped her understanding of social justice and the work of deconstructing and healing families. It all eventually led to her return to SMU to earn a Master of Science in Counseling with a focus on professional counseling and marriage and family therapy, and a concentration in expressive arts.

Stephany believes that our journey is not meant for us to walk alone, but to be rooted and trekked in community. Though there are relationship dynamics that perpetuate harm, there are other relationships that promote healing. She welcomes the opportunity to co-create a space that allows for such healing. 

Known as “honey girl” to the sweetest Granny Gran you’d ever meet, Stephany is the daughter of social justice warriors, baby sister of two and big sister of one–aunt is her favorite role of all. She is a lover of books, coffee, and belly laughs and is endlessly curious about e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
