Therapist in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Stephanie Ross, LCSW

Stephanie Ross, LCSW

Stephanie Ross is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois who has been practicing since 2010. She earned her Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work from New Mexico Highlands University. She moved from New Mexico to Illinois in 2021 and is anxious to put down roots here. Stephanie believes the therapeutic relationship is an equal one, grounded in working together to find solution-focused, positive skills to cope with life challenges. She sees her job as assisting clients to meet their goals and become their authentic selves.

Stephanie is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a comprehensive program for the treatment of disturbing experiences that underlie trauma and is an accepted treatment for PTSD. EMDR is also useful for issues that cause activation and anxiety. She has extensive experience in treating addiction issues using Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She believes recovery is possible for both addictions and mental health issues.
Her treatment modalities are centered around a mindfulness practice using a holistic approach which incorporates meditation, relaxation, breathing exercises, and aromatherapy. These practices help center the mind and body to help calm and better focus on therapy and coping with daily life stressors. She feels using a strength based and solution focused approach better enables one to gain confidence in getting through challenging life situations and transitions.

In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys reading, hiking, and spending time with her three grandchildren. Connecting with family is important and checking off bucket list destinations has been a fun activity.
