Stephanie’s work in higher education began in 2012 and she has served as a faculty member and administrator in several institutions, in both the United States and Canada, teaching undergraduate and graduate psychology courses and mentoring graduate students on their journey toward becoming a therapist or counselor.

Currently, she works on a contract/consulting basis as the director of a counseling department within an outpatient medical clinic.

She is informed by psychodynamic theory and borrows from skills-based approaches like DBT and CBT.

Her research interests include student therapist perception of competency, leadership in counseling and psychology departments in higher education, the etiology and treatment of eating disorders, medical trauma and the weaponization of bodies/body size, and the clinical application of psychodynamic approaches and accompanying experiences. In her free time, she loves to read, bike, travel, and spend time with her husband and daughters.
