She is married and lives with her husband and three children (ages 13, 12 and 8). Stephanie was raised on a small farm in North Central Kansas and remains very proud of her Kansas roots.

She received her Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2005 and 2010, respectively. She is a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist (LCMFT) and Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor (LCAC) in Kansas.
Stephanie has a passion for teaching and public speaking, having taught courses at Kansas State University and coordinating a program for girls called Project: Self-Esteem. In her therapy practice, she tends to work with individuals between the ages of 13-65 on issues related to: Addictions, marital/relationship struggles, anxiety/depression, overcoming fear and finding purpose, military men/women/families and death/dying/grief. She also enjoys working with professionals struggling with Imposter Syndrome and other professional issues. Treatment modalities vary by person and presenting issue, however she tends toward Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Values-based Therapy. Whenever possible and appropriate, Stephanie like to incorporate families or significant others into the treatment process.
Stephanie's goal is that which was identified by May (1983)...to completely experience the client's being--not of his/her symptoms or problems, but of his/her essence as a human being. She believes the basis of any good therapy experience lies in the quality of the relationship between the therapist and the client. Once that is established, good work can be done.
Stephanie accepts Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, Aetna, Tricare and self-pay clients.
