My Approach to Helping

As the founder of Willis CC, Stephanie?s background is Guatemalan and American and practices her work in Spanish and in English. She has been in the Chicago-land area for the last decade with work in Non-Profits, Hospitals, & Wilderness Programs before establishing WillisCC. She received her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Wheaton College. She currently writes a column called Mindful Cafe with the Naperville Sun-Times which can be found on our Facebook.

Early in her career, she specialized with high risk adolescents addressing self-injury, gang involvement, and drug use. She has significant experience doing Wilderness Therapy & leading World Cafe consultations for communities. Her expertise with adults focuses on perfectionism, stress relief, addiction, cultural struggles, faith & spiritual development as well as relationship stress.

Stephanie works to view her guests through an open and respectful lens by understanding how their cultural, sexual orientation, and spiritual or political preferences may have an influence on the guest?s world view. Her technique style is broad utilizing interventions that are evidence based to show effective from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Directive Observant Feedback.

She often works with business owners, senior management professionals, and other health care providers. Her work ranges from helping those with major life decisions, supporting young professionals trying navigate corporate life stress, and educating other leaders on evidence based approaches to improving their industry.

Her strong passion for supervising and developing other clinicians led to the WillisCC training program in which staff and other professionals can be observed and have formal experiential training. Our training program graduates have been exposed to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy & World Cafe style leadership & gain both clinical investment and personal development of the clinician as well. Stephanie travels internationally presenting and consulting other professionals and organizations & is currently accepting proposals for collaborative work.
