Becoming a therapist was Stephanie’s “third act” in life. She earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Health Psychology in 2002 from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she has also served as an adjunct assistant clinical professor of psychology for more than 10 years. Clinically, she has worked with adults and children in three major health care systems and was part of the Surviving Cancer Competently intervention research and implementation team at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. While at CHOP, she authored or co-authored seven articles and made numerous presentations to medical and mental health providers on the impact of illness, hospitalization, and trauma on adults, children and families.
Stephanie primarily treats adults in midlife crisis, who are stuck, in transition, or burned out, or who are dealing with illness, aging and loss, as well as couples who have experienced infidelity or major sticking points in their relationship.
Stephanie works intuitively, with humor and authenticity, and uses Emotion-Focused, Somatic, and Internal Family Systems therapies, in combination with grounding, exercise, and creative arts, to help bring the mind, body, and self into balance.
As a former national class marathoner and two-time winner of the women’s division of the D.C. Marathon, Stephanie learned first-hand how much the mind influences the body and vice versa. She brings this knowledge to clients not only to help them overcome significant emotional or somatic challenges but also as a way of helping clients become more comfortable in their own skin, and developing greater meaning, passion, and purpose in their lives.
