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.

Creative

I'm a firm believer that effective therapy is what works for you. I use evidence-based techniques, but I'm also not afraid to try something new. Your life experience is unique, so your counseling experience will be, too.

Determined

Whether you're excited to begin therapy or you view therapy as a last resort, I want to help. I have seen some tough cases and don't give up easily. There will always be one of us in the room that sees hope.

Genuine

I truly care for and connect with each client. I believe your healing comes from a balance of challenge and support. Need compassion? You've got it. Accountability? It's on the way. I want you to win, and we will celebrate each time.

my bio

Stephany is a 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.
