Dr. Stephens's approach is to work with you to identify the source of the problem and to help you develop skills to overcome it. Issues such as depression, anxiety and panic are particularly troubling and cause high levels of distress, but can be effectively treated, and in many cases without the need for medication. We will work with you to find the most effective ways to treat what is bringing you into counseling, and to help you go through the Hope-Relief-Freedom process as efficiently as possible.
