About Stephanie Hertel

Stephanie Hertel


My work with individuals and couples+, is based in the belief that (when given the right support) everyone has the ability to create meaningful changes, build satisfying relationships, & find more fulfillment in life. As a psychotherapist and sex therapist, I am dedicated to providing an inclusive space, welcoming individuals across the full spectrum of gender expression, sexual orientation, identity, & relationship styles. I provide transgender affirming care and am well versed in working with LGBTQ+/kink/poly/+, along with more-traditional monogamous individuals/relationships. 

Are you looking for support around your relationship(s), communication skills, intimacy, identity, sex and sexuality, or maybe needing help coping with anxiety, societal/familial expectations, stress, or negative self-talk? Whatever you are needing support for, I am here.

Our sessions are a non-judgmental space for you to safely explore your authentic needs/desires, & gain insight. Additionally, we will work together to help you define your goals, outline tangible steps for achieving them, and equip you with the tools to see results. Whether you’re navigating personal growth or seeking relationship enrichment, I’d like to help you get there.

Pulling from a variety of modalities, my approach is tailored to my client’s needs. I believe in a collaborative process that is based on transparency, curiosity, compassion, & trust. If you are curious that we may be a good fit, please reach out for a free 15 min phone consultation to learn more about my therapeutic style. I look forward to connecting.
