Hey! My name is Stephanie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I love helping people discover who they are under the trauma.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , MO
This year has been especially difficult, but the reality is cultural and systemic oppression has been a challenge for Black and Brown people in America for hundreds of years. Being faced with microaggressions, microinsults, and bias is exhausting, infuriating, and invalidating. I strive to give individuals who encounter these assaults a space to seek refuge to be validated and built up. You are important! You are valuable! You are worthy of treatment that does not damage how you view yourself!
I believe we are people outside of the roles and titles we hold. No matter what the professional title is, from CEO to stay at home parent, there can be challenges and blind spots. I work to help you see and understand these challenges and come up with strategies to get where you want to be!
I work with adults who are adoptees or are parents of adopted children. I specialize in children impacted by the child welfare system. I work to assess the challenges and help the individual understand, then come up with strategies that are impactful to the individual or family.
Through my extensive training, I am well-versed in providing treatment with a variety of traumas, including one time and chronic trauma experiences as well as childhood trauma. I help the client understand their actions through their trauma. I use a variety of techniques to help the client become aware of and respond differently to their trauma and trauma responsive behaviors.
