We all have areas that we would like to improve or enhance, some significant and some subtle, and we are here and ready to walk with you as you start this more profound understanding of who you are and what you want in life. We are adept at helping you with transitions in life from becoming a new parent to being an empty nester, from starting a new job to deciding whether to leave one. We can help you navigate a lifestyle change, develop an understanding and skills to manage depression, anxiety, stress, relationships, and build a better relationship with yourself. We have specific training in helping people recover from trauma and understand how traumatic experiences impact the lifespan through choices and relationships. It’s always the right time to take care of yourself.
One of our core specialties at Stephens Therapy Associates is working with clients who have been in relationships with narcissists or those who have narcissistic tendencies. The type of abuse that goes along with being in a relationship with a narcissist is unique and not understood well by most and, unfortunately, not treated by most therapists. However, we are well versed in understanding this type of abuse and the trauma that goes along with it. We get the lingering effects and the haunting feeling the narcissist leaves us with when we are apart from them. We understand that grief occurs when we realize what is happening in our relationship, and confusion and dissonance arise when we are coming to terms that we need to get away from the narcissist. We understand the pull to stay with or return to the narcissist even after seeing the truth. We get it. Fortunately, we also know that we can move on and heal from these relationships. Brenda Stephens has written two books on narcissistic relationships and has developed a treatment technique to guide you through healing. At Stephens Therapy Associates, we offer therapy, coaching, workshops, and support groups that support the recovery of those who have experienced the unique abuse that narcissists use. We understand, have lived it, and help you get through it.

We use therapy techniques that help with day-to-day challenges, PTSD, workplace challenges, depression, anxiety, and emotional regulation, to name a few.

So let us join you on your walk toward healing.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
In our practice, we use a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy called Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) that helps individuals manage strong, negative emotions, beliefs, and behaviors. The REBT model provides a direct method to evaluate deeper core beliefs and develop unconditional self-acceptance and empowerment. Learning how to change irrational beliefs effectively promotes significant improvement in mood, functioning, and overall self-esteem, towards a more fulfilling life experience.
