My name is Stephanie McGraw, and I graduated from the Silberman School of Social at Hunter College in 2018 with a Master's Degree. I have helped clients understand the importance of putting oneself first emotionally and mentally.  

 

My efforts are focused on giving clients tools to empower themselves through talk therapy. I am passionate about working with individuals as I know first hand it can be difficult to get the support you need. Coming from a background that didn’t afford me much counsel growing up, I understand that having proper guidance in life is a key factor in success. I’m here to affect change by breaking barriers through providing services to individuals in need. In implementing these changes, I will offer services centered around building self-sustainability by pinpointing life issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Domestic Violence, PTSD, and many more.  

 

My calm demeanor and enthusiasm helps foster trust and comfortability with clients. Open communication will afford me the opportunity to meet individuals where they are, and in turn help them to where they want to be. I’m dedicated to assisting clients to create their own narratives so that they may become the best versions of themselves. With my experience, I will work diligently to create a safe environment where clients can come to express their issues and concerns.
