Stephanie Trahant

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Hi! I am Stephanie, a licensed professional counselor in both Virginia and Colorado. I enjoy working with teens who want to move towards change in any area. In addition, I consider it an honor to walk with clients who are on a grief journey, knowing that grief for teens may look different. I like to treat the whole person; I see myself as a cross between a therapist, life coach, and spiritual director.

I am a good fit for counseling through online chat, because I'm also a writer and can help you find words for the feelings in your heart. I received my master's degree from Colorado Christian University in 1998 and have worked in the counseling field off and on since then, moving to part-time as I began raising my two, beautiful daughters, who are now teenagers themselves. I have worked with teens in several settings including the counseling office, camp counseling, and my church’s college student ministry.

Connecting people together is something I do best: hearing all sides of the issue and helping find the common ground. This is especially useful when working with teens and their parents. In addition, I encourage those who have a faith walk to see the ways God is moving all around them. I like to bring hope and humor to the counseling session; I have seen that laughter and tears are but one step from each other.

Eclectic in methodology, I stay open to anything that will bring us closer to your treatment goals. In addition to being a therapist, mother, and writer, I am also an athlete, mountain lover, and free spirit. Please reach out! I look forward to working with you.

Amazing I am still working with her and she has opened the door to my life without extreme pain. This is one of the best counselors out there I personally believe in her and she believes in me and then the fact that she is always there.

I have worked with lots of different therapists in the past. Stephanie is the first one that has helped me crack open the more difficult aspects of my past to give me a chance to let the light in. I feel very lucky to have someone who both understands and challenges me.

Stephanie is really understanding to both me and my partner, really listens to us and it feels like she really cares, even beyond our sessions. She makes sessions fun, and just the person my partner and I needed. We appreciate her a lot!!
