Stephanie provides EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) therapy to the clients at ICFR, which is a special type of treatment used to address underlying trauma. Stephanie is an Indiana native and grew up in neighboring Greene County. Stephanie attended Indiana University and holds a Master's degree in Counseling and Counselor Education and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Stephanie's first post-graduate job was as Clinical Coordinator at Becky's Place, a local homeless shelter for women and children. During her time there she saw a great need for trauma specific therapy, especially for those struggling with substance use issues. During her time at Becky's Place, Stephanie was trained in EMDR and became a believer in its ability to process and heal historical trauma. Stephanie is grateful to be a part of the ICFR team and is committed to the mission of supporting long term recovery in the Bloomington community and beyond.
