My Approach to Helping

Stephanie Meeks, LCSW works with a diverse patient population to improve mental health. She believes that mental health care is a holistic experience encompassing body, mind, spirit and soul. She is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, strengths-based therapies and navigating grief and loss.

 

Stephanie enjoys empowering patients to build skills that enable healthier versions of themselves. She is passionate about creating a safe space without judgment, meeting each individual where they are in their mental health journey. 

Originally from Queens, New York, Stephanie earned a master’s degree in social work from Simmons University. Full of curiosity, she considers herself a lifelong learner. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys farm life, nature, and spending time with her family.

I am a Telehealth Provider

I know that it can be hard to fit appointments into your daily life. Leaving home when you are managing mental health symptoms, or even just finding time to commute regularly to an in-person appointment can be difficult. Telehealth is the ability to provide mental health care services from a distance through technology

A Few Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
  • Group Counseling: Two or more patients may participate in therapy at the same time. Patients can share experiences and learn that others feel the same way and have had the same experiences.
  • Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Ages I Work With

Each stage of life creates different challenges to good mental health. Eating right, staying physically active, getting enough sleep, and having health relationship will help support good mental health & wellness throughout life.

An accurate diagnosis and an age-appropriate treatment program is crucial when one is suffering from mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorder. I offer services for:

  • Adults (18-55)
  • Elders (56-100+)

Therapy Groups​

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people manage mental health conditions or cope with negative experiences and behaviors.
Group therapy can be beneficial for a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.
One of the goals of group therapy is to bring people who share similar experiences together. 

Meeting other people recovering from or working through similar issues helps people realize that they are not alone.

By participating in group therapy, individuals can gain valuable insight and feedback from others who have similar experiences and challenges.
Group members and therapists can help each other by sharing information and offering advice.
Group therapy members can also hold each other accountable for their progress and encourage each other to make positive changes.
Group members can support, reassure, and help each other improve throughout the treatment.
Below is the group I lead:

  • Post incarceration adults 

Remember, taking the first step towards seeking help and support is often the hardest, but it can also be the most rewarding.

Some Client Concerns I Treat​

Mental health crises range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to traumatic mental health crisis or serious long-term conditions. A mental health crisis is a difficult life situation where a person’s coping strategies do not work. People in crisis feel helpless and distressed, they feel like they are losing control over their life.

I am trained to help people experiencing a crisis and can teach skills and strategies to manage crisis situations more effectively. Some of my client concerns and mental health crisis and disorder specialties include:

Industries & Communities Serves

Community can be defined in many ways, but when simplified down to its most important element, community is all about connection. Community is not just an entity or a group of people, it’s a feeling. It’s feeling connected to others, feeling accepted for who you are and feeling supported.

We’re social beings, and we are not meant to live in isolation. Community is critical for us to thrive, especially for someone with mental illness who is already experiencing the common symptoms of loneliness and isolation. Below are some of the communities I work with to help provide a sense of belonging, support, and purpose.

  • Education
  • Entertainment Industry
  • First Responder/Medical
  • Professionals
  • Military/Law Enforcement
  • Professional Sports
  • Self-Employed and Freelance Professionals

Facility Accessibility

Morgan Health Centers and its Affiliates are outpatient centers and NOT an emergency care facility. In case of an emergency please contact a primary care physician or the local emergency room, police or 911.

Those with disabilities often face major barriers getting the health care services they need. Research shows that, compared to people with out disabilities, people with disabilities are less likely to receive comprehensive preventative care. Improving physical access to health care services is essential to achieving health equity. 

We recognize the needs of patients with disabilities, and make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and accommodate these patients.
