Hi, I'm Stephanie. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and adjunct professor at the Emory School of Medicine. I strive to provide a warm and safe space where patients can feel comfortable sharing without fear of judgment. My goal is to help my patients reflect on their values so that they can work towards what it means to be their "best self." I will always focus on treating the symptoms and not the "disorder," in an effort to tailor my approach to the individual. I believe deeply in fighting stigma associated with mental illness and am involved in advocacy and research outside of treating patients. I am well-versed in treating mood disorders, anxiety disorders, relationship challenges, and a variety of other concerns. I also specialize in trauma-based therapies, with particular experience treating survivors of intimate partner, sexual, and domestic violence.
For my internship and postdoctoral fellowship, I trained at the Emory School of Medicine. Outside of clinical work, I have published on suicide, intimate partner violence, and sexual violence victimization (soon to be in press). I am passionate about advocacy, especially pertaining to improving access to mental healthcare within the prison system.
