Hello, my name is Stephanie Kohn. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. I earned a Bachelor of Psychology at University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL and a Masters of Science Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL. I started out working in a Community Health setting 9 years ago as a Rape Recovery Advocate and then transitioned in 2014 to a Mental Health Counselor role for Sexual Assault Survivors and their families. I also worked with children and their families as a therapeutic based on site therapist through a nonprofit for children's health and wellbeing. Both of these roles afforded me the opportunity to specialize in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for ages 6 and older focusing on issues such as coping with trauma, sexual assault, spouse abuse, domestic violence, adoption loss, family integration, depression, anxiety, PTSD, infertility, postpartum depression, grief and loss, personality disorders, and major life changes. I am also a Certified Intrinsic Coach (CIC) through Intrinsic Solutions International and have 10 years experience in Human Resources with various companies prior to becoming a therapist.
My counseling style integrates techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Acceptance and Commitment, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, and Somatic (mind-body connection) depending on the clients needs and personality. I have a natural passion to learn about people and approach clients with open curiosity ready to understand their world and how I can support through any trauma or changes. I strive to create a space free of judgment to gently encourage clients to explore emotions, thoughts, beliefs and fears so that they may understand themselves better. With awareness, clients are empowered to change their own futures.
“Awareness is all about restoring your freedom to choose what you want instead of what your past imposes on you.” Deepak Chopra

It’s only been a few weeks since I started with Stephanie but I really enjoy working with her. She is very well trained in her field of practice.
I feel like she's my best friend! But I pay for her lol. I've had many therapists and never felt very comfortable or like i was actually being heard with a heart. Stephanie is different! Love her!
