Hi and welcome to my page! My name is Stephanie Hernandez Espinosa and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Congratulations on taking the first step towards a better you!
The pressures of life, our core beliefs and societal influences can significantly impact our lives in an adverse way. As a result, we often get stuck in self-destructive cycles and lose hope that our lives can be different. We habitually self-medicate with food, alcohol, drugs, work and/or sex to seek a moment of escape and even happiness.
Therapy can provide individuals with the ability to discover themselves, reach their potential and maneuver through life with the appropriate tools. Let me help you discover again joy, satisfaction, self-awareness and rid yourself of patterns of the past. It’s time to start living the life that you have always wanted and truly deserve!
My emphasis is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and I am skilled in working with at-risk youth, adults, adolescents, trauma, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and substance use. My style of therapy can be described as empathic, eclectic, energetic, educational, direct and self-empowering.
“Cognitive therapy seeks to alleviate psychological stresses by correcting faulty conceptions and self-signals. By correcting erroneous beliefs we can lower excessive reactions.” -Aaron Beck
