I’m Stephanie, and I’m currently about halfway through my MS in Counseling (LPC) at SMU. My areas of interest include trauma and abuse, mood disorders, and substance abuse as well as issues around gender, power, and trust. I’m interested in Gestalt and Family Systems theories as well as Social Justice and Feminist approaches to counseling. I love to travel and go to concerts, but these days I’m way more likely to spend my spare time binge-watching stand-up comedy with my cat, Oliver, than going on any big adventures. My life goals include visiting every continent, cage-diving with great white sharks, and successfully painting my nails with my non-dominant hand. A few of my favorite things are coffee, kittens, and queso.
