About the Therapist
Stephanie Jacob Marshall
My experience prior to private practice includes working with traumatic brain injury patients, adjustment to disability, vocational testing, and career counseling. 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.
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. I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral therapy and attachment theory with patients. I believe that mental health is just as important as physical health and addressing both components results in a healthier, happier life.
On a personal note, I am a married mom of three. 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.
