About Me

Welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Stephanie Murana and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Connecticut. I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2014 with a Masters degree in Educational Psychology, with a concentration in School Counseling. As a current School Counselor, I have worked to help students and families from different backgrounds in our state to work through challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and difficulties with family/peer relationships. The adolescent years are challenging and can be difficult to manage. Teens need to feel comfortable and their voices heard by the people closest to them. In my experience, offering a safe place for children to express their feelings without fear of judgment is paramount. I provide that feeling of understanding and comfort through my approach to counseling. My counseling style is eclectic in the sense that I tailor my approach to what works best for you, the client! However, the foundation of my practice comes from a client-centered approach, which focuses on building a solid relationship between counselor and client, as well as empathy, mutual respect and support. If your child needs support, I would be honored to be that person for them. I look forward to working with you and your child!

Stephanie is fantastic. She takes the time to understand where I’m coming from and to then help me explore with more depth what’s on my mind.

I have tried counseling in the past and it never worked for me but using teen counseling did. I think it is a lot more convenient and I feel like I can explain myself more over text than in person. I would definitely use this again if I run into another problem. Stephanie helped me to understand my situation and I am very thankful. Overall I am very impressed with this experience.
