Stephanie Gilbert AMFT
Program Director, Therapist
Stephanie graduated with her Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, with a specialization in Spiritual and Depth Psychology. While at Antioch, she studied Tibetan Buddhism in France, exploring its applications to the therapeutic process, and also in San Paulo, Brazil studying the connection between spirituality and medicine. She has since continued in both these areas of study. Stephanie brings what she learned and incorporates elements as needed into the therapeutic process, with the goal of creating a unique approach based on what the client needs.
Stephanie has previously worked in community mental health care providing individual and couples therapy. She has also worked in a treatment center setting focused on the areas of eating disorders and addiction. By building a strong connection with empathy, understanding, and compassion, healing can begin to take place. Through this experience, Stephanie approaches therapy with the knowledge that each person is different. She understands that beginning therapy can be scary and creates an environment where a person can process without judgment.
Stephanie combines her previous experience with mindfulness, meditation, and Jungian psychology in her therapeutic approach, incorporating them with interventions from orientations such as CBT and DBT. Stephanie has worked with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, OCD, addiction issues, and personality disorders. Her clinical areas of specialty include eating and body issues.
In her spare time, Stephanie practices mysore-style ashtanga yoga and enjoys travel. Stephanie has worked under the supervision of Erica Ives, LMFT#34566, CEDS, for the past year and considers her a mentor, Associate Marriage Family Therapist #99283
