My Approach to Helping
My name is Stephanie Kregel-Forbes. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (mental health therapist) as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor.
I am motivated and gravitate toward working with families, specifically providing parental support and working tweens/teens. I also greatly enjoy working with adults on various adult and mental health issues. I am passionate about empowering others to realize and nurture and grow their inner strengths and using those strengths to exact action toward healthy lasting positive change.
I work collaboratively with each individual, starting out where each person may be in life and provide a safe space for self-exploration to discover those inner strengths as we move along the path of empowerment and wellbeing. I understand that we each have unique strengths and different life experiences. I will be supportive, encourage empowerment, provide empathy, alternative points of view, and gently push or challenge negative thoughts or behavior patterns that may be keeping individuals stuck.
I believe that people have the ability to change when they are able to fully realize their inner strengths and therefore believe in themselves.
