About Stephanie Dykema

Welcome! As a psychologist at Balanced Awakening, I see women for a broad range of psychotherapy needs. I recognize that it often takes immense courage to seek help and acknowledge that life isn’t going how you hoped it would be. As your therapist, I aim to help you to understand and navigate the roadblocks preventing you from pursuing the life and relationships you seek. To do this, we will explore your current and past experiences and how messages from society, relationships, and childhood impact you. Rather than living your life according to these negative experiences, or having your day dictacted by anxiety or depression, I desire to help you live your life according to your values – to what matters to you most. In therapy I use compassion, openness, and gentle challenges to help you make progress towards your goals. I am a relational and multicultural therapist, which means I focus on relationship patterns that may be keeping you stuck and the impact of gender, race, and sexual orientation (among many other identities) on our lives, mental health, and relationships. I also integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness to increase coping with symptoms and emotions. I specialize in helping college students, young adults, and adults experiencing difficulties with self-care, negative relationship patterns, low self-esteem, identity confusion/exploration, and adjustment to various life changes. Overall, I consider it an honor to collaborate with my clients in their unique journey towards wellness. I will send you a confirmation email upon booking an appointment. *Please note our 24 hour cancellation policy.*
