Stephanie Boarman, MA, Resident in Counseling
Supervised by David Hawxhurst, LPC
Stephanie is passionate about combining evidence-based clinical interventions with biblical truth in the context of an empathetic, therapeutic relationship. She enjoys working with women from adolescence into the senior years. Stephanie’s time working in ministry illuminated the great need for professionals who can bring together clinical mental health training and the Gospel, so she answered God’s call to come back to counseling. Areas of clinical interest include life transitions, relationship challenges, trauma, grief & loss, anxiety & stress management, co-dependency and boundary development. Stephanie also uses genogram work to help clients identify and address generational patterns. She is a believer that many of our struggles can be traced to our early experiences in relationship with others.
Stephanie earned her BA in Psychology from the University of Louisville, and her MS in Counseling from Longwood University. Her past work includes wilderness-based interventions with adults & adolescents, ministry, and more recently as a life coach where she helped others strengthen their mental and emotional health with Christ at the center. Stephanie has training in various Grief Therapies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT, Trust Based Relational Intervention, and using the Enneagram for personal growth and healing.
She enjoys spending time with friends and family, helping in her church’s care ministry, and spending lots of time in nature.
