What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As an African American Christian woman, I bring warmth and empathy along with a unique way to explore any issues, having had experiences along with expertise that shaped my thinking.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Stephanie A. Haywood is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) who specializes in treating trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, women's issues, and narcissism in individuals, couples, and families. Stephanie has over 20 years of experience in the mental health field, working extensively with survivors of trauma and helping others cope through life's everyday challenges. Stephanie completed her bachelor s degree at Marquette University and her master s degree in Community Counseling at Loyola University, Chicago. She is proud to be a Christian and believes that God has gifted her to do this kind of work. Stephanie seeks to work with you toward meeting your goals and working through your painful experiences. She has found that most people don't seek help when they first need it because they believe they can "do it" themselves. Society would dictate that you embrace DIY culture, but Stephanie believes that God never meant for anyone to go it alone. Being a good listener is the first step in being able to engage others and truly connect on a deeper level. Stephanie has the ability to connect in such a way that brings comfort to clients when they first meet her.
