Stephaine Chu, LPC-MHSP, NCC, CPT
Stephaine Chu is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Mental Health Service provider, and nationally certified counselor. She is grounded in an empowerment model of counseling to support individuals across developmental levels (ages 10 and up). Stephaine has experience aiding military, first responders, and their families in managing the specific stressors of their life. She has worked with individuals in various life transitions including specific knowledge in grief/loss, cultural transitions, and trauma. Overall Stephaine wants to help clients discover their agency so they can build healthy relationships and lifestyles.
Stephaine provides evidence based practices and utilizes relational cultural therapy as her main modality. This theory seeks to help clients discover power and meaning in their lives within the context of relationships. Stephaine employs holistic interventions such as providing movement guidance and mindfulness training. If appropriate for the client’s needs, she will incorporate other interventions from Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Gestalt, and Narrative therapy.
She has special training in grief/loss interventions including non-death losses and traumatic loss for children and adolescence (CTG). Additionally, she has training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT). Stephaine hopes that clients can leave counseling having a deeper knowledge and love for themselves so they can advocate for their best life
