Hi I’m Stephanie.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, owner and provider at Better Being Therapy Services and contributing author on Psychology Today. Born and raised in Florida I’ve spent most of my life in Jacksonville where many of my most cherished memories were made. Raised as the daughter of an immigrant, I’ve seen the challenges that people from different backgrounds face. I’ve also seen how beautiful life can be in spite of hardships.
As a Florida native I’m partial to the outdoors, and particularly the beach. I can be found most days sitting on the shore with a good book watching my husband surf, or splashing around the waves myself.
When not in the sun I can be found doing any number of other hobbies that I enjoy, including: watering my one-too-many house plants, working on a novel, taking an improv comedy class, yoga with my cat, meditating, or reading a good book.
As a therapist I take very seriously the privilege that I hold in being let in to a persons life, pain and trials. I take pride in this honor and work to understand and support each individual through whatever they are going through. In this role, I’ve seen great pain and great hope and healing. I truly love what I do and what each day brings. I can’t wait to meet you and help you find that same feeling in your life.
Professionally, I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of North Florida and my Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University. I completed my practicum and internship in Jacksonville, and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida and am trained in EFT. I am currently working towards complete certification as a Certified EFT Therapist, to be completed in 2024.
