Stephanie Gore, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Are you not feeling like yourself or are you becoming overwhelmed with negative thoughts and unsure how to move forward? Have you recently gone through a significant loss or stressful life experience and need help adjusting to a new normal?

My role is to assist you in discovering ways to improve your quality of life. Taking the first step can be the most difficulty step but is necessary to begin the process of making those life changes. I am here to encourage, motivate, and spur you on.

Is your child experiencing emotional distress after being diagnosed with a disability? 

Children and young teens often face emotional problems specific to their age group. I can assist them in learning appropriate ways to cope and manage their thoughts, feelings, and emotions to change their outlook on their future success.

Does your child or adolescent need help with executive functioning skills?

Time management, self-discipline, and school work are examples of executive functioning that can be difficult for any child, especially if they have ADD/ADHD or a Learning Disability. I will provide your child strategies and tips for overcoming these challenges.

My approach incorporates several evidenced based modalities to include motivational interviewing, person centered therapy, and cognitive behavior therapy.

Working with children, teenagers, and young adults has been my passion for over 15 years in school settings, mental health centers, and vocational rehabilitation centers.

I specialize in the following areas:

  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Grief and Loss
  • School/Career related issues

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurances:

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans)
  • Cigna
  • Tricare
  • United Healthcare
