Stephanie Bennett has a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Spring Arbor University and has worked in mental health for over 7 years. Stephanie values being a person who is a hope-giver, helping people feel less alone in their struggles and equipping those same people with the knowledge and tools they need to keep moving forward with strength and confidence.
Stephanie has clinical experience working with those dealing with depression, anxiety, eating disorders (specifically at an eating disorder treatment center), trauma including assault and abuse, grief/loss, life transitions, relationship navigation, LGBTQIA-related matters, academic difficulties, and stress and anger management. Stephanie works from a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework, though she utilizes wide-ranging techniques based on individual client needs. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. Stephanie is also certified as a Prepare/Enrich Facilitator for couples and premarital counseling.
Stephanie gathered comprehensive counseling skills through training in the private practice setting, as well as in the university and community health settings. Additional professional experience includes working as a Family Crisis Social Worker providing home-based family intervention, life skills education, and community resource connection. Working with home-based family systems provided Stephanie with specific insight into how mental health issues impact more than just the individual.
Stephanie sees clients virtually and works with individuals, couples, and groups ages 14 and older. She currently accepts Aetna, Tricare West, Team Choice, United Health Care, First Care, and Baylor Scott & White insurance, as well as self-pay.
