“Owning our story and loving ourselves through the process is the greatest thing we will ever do’’-Brene Brown. Hello and welcome! My name is Stephene Evans and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I have worked with a variety of populations throughout my 12+ years of clinical experience; including individuals, children, and adolescents. I am passionate about children and have maintained primary focus on serving young children and families. I specialize in working with early childhood mental health, sensory processing disorders, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief, behavior modification, ADHD, parenting, stress management, and trauma. The choice to seek therapy is a very important one, one that shows you are ready to go on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and change. Therapy works because we are utilizing our intrinsic need to connect with others and release the heaviness of issues and problems in ways make us feel heard, supported, and understood. My counseling style is supportive, interactive, empathetic, and culturally inclusive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I recognize every person is unique and therapeutic modalities are not one-size-fits-all. I utilize an eclectic blend of therapeutic approaches including cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, systemic and strengths-based counseling. Sessions are very much client-led, meaning that you determine the goals and the direction of our sessions. My role is to walk with you and empower you to challenge and modify the behaviors and thought patterns that are not working. My goal is to help each person make big changes doing small things. Sometimes it just takes one person to listen to help make that change, other times it’s just saying what you are thinking and feeling out loud that makes the difference. Whatever it is, my wish is to be able to help guide you through your own path of self-discovery and self-love.
