Stephanie Sternes 

Founder/ Clinical Director

LAMFT-6458

LPC-S- 6458

NCC -70739


I completed my studies in Marriage and Family Counseling at Northwest Nazarene University. I have worked as a resource specialist, teacher, and small claims mediator. I am a a wife and mother with 6 children ages 10 to 37.

 

I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups to problem solve and uncover new areas of positive engagement. Sometimes people get stuck in what they are doing. We tend to do the same things looking for different results.

 

I enjoy working with people to help them clarify their goals and move forward with plans to help achieve what they are after.

 

I have a particular interest in helping people regain relationships. With couples it is incorporating the past and the future. Today's families are complicated; navigating step families, parent child, couple's and in-law relationships are not things they teach us in school. Knowledgeable support can be key.

 

My approach to counseling is through power of choice and a realistic look at strengths and options. I believe that you are the expert of your own life and with clarity more options are available to you.
