About the Therapist

Stephanie Jacob Marshall

Who am I? Not so much my degrees and training (which are important) but most people want to know why I chose this field. As a child, my dream was to be a journalist but an intro to psychology class in high school changed that. I knew immediately that I wanted to be a therapist in private practice and that dream never changed. I am a helper and genuinely enjoy hearing people's stories. My hope is that therapy progresses and you begin to see changes in your life. We will work together to build a happier, healthier life. You are the expert on your life.  

I look at attachment and bonding when working with new families. It is important that you feel safe and comfortable with non-judgment during our time together.  I am passionate about women's health and utilize the research from the field within my clinical work.

Here is information on my training/degrees for those who are interested: I earned a BA in psychology and sociology from The Ohio State University and went on to earn a master's degree in counseling with a specialization in clinical counseling. During my undergrad and graduate career, I worked extensively in psychology, education and public policy research while completing coursework. I interned at the university counseling center in graduate school which helped me realize how much I enjoyed working with clients who are in a transitional phase of their lives. On a personal note, I lived in both India and the United States during my early childhood which gives me a unique perspective. There can be so much pressure from the South Asian community which can ultimately, negatively impact mental health. Setting healthy realistic boundaries and identifying personal values are a big component of my work with South Asian expectations and perfectionism.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Collaboration with other providers enhances a patient's health (physical and mental). I have completed trauma focused training in Emotion-Focused Individual Therapy. In addition, I have completed numerous trainings in perinatal mental health from Postpartum Support International and other providers. I truly enjoy clinical work with clients and look forward to implementing a highly individualized, interpersonal, and research-based approach for every client.
