Stephanie has a passion for sharing information with families and partnering with them as they tackle the tough topics of parenting in today’s world. Whether coming alongside parents to create device usage plans that work for their families or equipping parents to talk openly and honestly with their children about sex and pornography, Stephanie feels that putting tools in the hands of parents is crucial.
Stephanie has worked with children and families in various roles for the entirety of her career. After spending five years as an elementary school teacher in Alabama, she headed to Dallas Theological Seminary where she earned her Master’s of Arts in Biblical Counseling. During her time in Dallas, Stephanie worked with families in roles ranging from tutor to nanny to mentor. Upon completing her degree, she spent a year as the children’s pastor of a church in Georgia. Stephanie then served as the guidance counselor at a private school outside of Atlanta for four years working with children ages 5 through 14 as well as their parents.
Over the years, Stephanie found that one of the biggest catalysts for change and positive growth in a child is the willingness of parents to engage. When parents are educated on a topic, equipped with practical strategies, and encouraged to engage in the battles of parenting, life change happens - not just for the child but for the entire family unit.
Life in today’s social climate can feel overwhelming. Some days, simply surviving feels like an accomplishment. Stephanie’s heart is to guide families on a journey toward fully enjoying life together rather than simply existing.
