Stephanie M. Marshall
My experience prior to private practice includes working with traumatic brain injury patients, adjustment to disability, vocational testing, trauma, and career counseling. I have worked with women at various stages of life. I completed my internship in a university setting with much of my work conducted with women. I have supervised and coached many young women in a higher education setting professionally. Issues can range from body image, health issues, relationships, academics, career, friendships and so much more. It can be overwhelming but therapy can help.
Parenthood brings a lot of uncertainty and little to no control which can be so difficult to accept. I understand the many joys and stresses of parenthood both personally and professionally. The family unit is a system so each person effects the other. Healthy communication between everyone results in improved relationships. I will help you through this process. I look at attachment and bonding when working with new families. It is important to me that you feel safe and comfortable with non-judgment during our time together.
My goal is to help you come up with potential solutions to issues in a collaborative way. I would like things to improve quickly for you but at the same time, the goal is to come up with lifelong tools and coping strategies that will hopefully help you for the rest of your life. I utilize research-based techniques while being warm, empathetic and genuine. I want therapy to be a place in which you can talk about your issues openly and without reservation. Expressive arts and nature are healing. I believe that the impact of trauma can manifest in the body. If you are interested in incorporating expressive arts (writing, movement, art, equine, yoga, dance) or the outdoors into our work together, we can create a treatment plan potentially collaborating with other providers with this focus. I am a researcher and writer at heart and am part of the research process within the field when time permits.
On a personal note, I am a mom of three and have been married for 14 years. My parents were born and raised in India. I lived both in India and the United States during my childhood which gives me a unique perspective. 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. I am a licensed, board-certified professional counselor.
