Stephanie Regus, MACP, Doctoral Student
Many people do not know how to make the meaningful changes that they would like to see happen in their life. Even if you know what needs to change, you may often find yourself wondering how or why can’t I make this change? I work to help you identify what brought you to this point, what is involved in getting stuck, and how to derive meaning from those experiences to work towards lasting change. I believe that our childhood and life experiences play a significant role in our development and impact the ways that we think, feel, and behave in the present.
Because of the many different life experiences of my clients, I have taken on an model of psychotherapy that leaves room for each unique individual. I take a personable approach because I believe that it is important for me to be myself in order for you to feel comfortable being yourself. I am committed to discovering the method that works best for you personally, using a combination of evidence-based practices and strengths-based focuses.
Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology (MACP)
Completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Work
I am a fourth year doctoral candidate in the counseling psychology program at Northwest University. I have a background in community mental health, which offered me the opportunity to work with a wide range of individuals. My recent clinical work has allowed me to work with varied struggles, including experiences of depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief, disability, and challenges in sexuality. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in various contexts. I enjoy helping people find what works best for them in their healing journey and emphasizing and expanding their strengths in the process. I believe that with the right understanding, skills, and a safe space to process, anyone can work towards the change they would like to see.
I am happy to speak with you to see what I can offer based on your needs and goals. Please feel free to contact me to learn more.
