Stephanie graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a
bachelor’s degree in Psychology and received her master’s degree in Clinical
Social Work at University of Maryland, Baltimore. She is fluent in Spanish and
has worked as a therapist at an outpatient mental health center where she
provided individual and group therapy, and has experience providing therapy to
adults with a variety of clinical presentations and concerns. She has an interest in

addressing anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, loss and grief, and trauma that may be hindering healthy relationships from flourishing.

Stephanie uses a wide-range of evidence-based interventions such as strengths-
based perspective, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT),
and solution-focused therapy. Stephanie is passionate about dialectical behavioral
therapy (DBT). She believes DBT is helpful for clients when handling intense and
difficult emotions without jeopardizing relationships. Stephanie is obtaining ongoing mentorship, supervision, and training with Amanda Pezzanite, LCSW-C, who is a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Clinician™.

She incorporates DBT, EMDR, CBT, and internal family systems (IFS) into her clinical practice. Stephanie looks forward to joining clients in their EMDR journey of self-discovery and emotional healing.
