Training and Education
Before she found her way in the therapy world, Stephanie worked as a preschool teacher for many years, then she received an undergraduate degree in English Literature with a Theater minor. At that time, Stephanie’s desire was to be a teacher. However, after completing her undergraduate studies, she earned a Master’s Degree in Human Sciences and completed a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Stephanie recently obtained her certification as a Registered Play Therapist.
Stephanie completed her internship at the University of Maryland’s Care Clinic, working with victims of trauma. She then moved on to work in a residential program for at-risk youth, where she provided individual and group therapy. After that, she spent several years working in community mental health with a variety of populations before settling into the private practice world. She presently provides therapeutic services in Mt. Airy at Roots to Wings, LLC.
Stephanie’s primary goal is for her clients and supervisees to feel comfortable and understood. Therapy is not a 'one size fits all' approach. Sometimes therapy can look more 'traditional,' but therapy can also be taking a walk, playing a game, listening to music, or engaging in creative expression.
