Stephanie Dunlap is a licensed clinical social worker. A former print news reporter, Stephanie worked in a number of social services nonprofits before completing her Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Denver in 2018 with concentrations in Mental Health and Family Systems. She has served clients of all ages in an outpatient therapy center as well as in an elementary school, in the Denver women’s prison, in private practice, and on the streets with individuals experiencing homelessness.
Stephanie believes we all have the keys to our own healing within us, and the therapeutic relationship provides the ground for unlocking that healing. She is committed to meeting clients and families where they are while gently challenging unhelpful narratives and stuck points through a variety of client-centered therapeutic approaches. She treats trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and other issues through nondirective and directive play therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), IFS (Internal Family Systems), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), narrative therapy, existential therapy, and other modalities. She completed training in EMDR in 2022.
In her free time, Stephanie enjoys reading, writing, spending time with friends, exercising, eating dark chocolate, and relaxing with her partner, two dogs, and a handful of houseplants.
