Stephanie Gardner-Wright

Stephanie Gardner-Wright, LMSW

  • Licensure: Masters of Clinical Social Work and LMSW (6801095574) in MI
  • Services offered: I provide neuro-affirming individual therapy for adults via telehealth from a depth therapy orientation, where we look beneath symptoms to the underlying patterns that are often not within our conscious awareness. I work with folks who are newly diagnosed with autism, ADHD or both (AuDHD), self-identified, or wishing to explore the possibility of neurodivergence. I bring lived experience as a high-masking, late-diagnosed autistic and ADHDer, with over a decade of clinical experience and training in complex trauma, energy psychology, psychodynamic therapy, high sensitivity and parent coaching.
  • Payment accepted: I am paneled with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network. I also accept private pay and can provide a superbill upon request for possible reimbursement from insurance.
  • Stephanie’s message: There’s power in getting curious about the intergenerational and societal messages we’ve internalized as truth, deciding what still fits for us and what is unhelpful. Exploring these messages can give us freedom, understanding and self-compassion for ourselves (and past versions of ourselves). We can learn to trust our inner knowing again, or learn to trust it for the first time. My practice is queer and neurodivergent affirming and PDA-Autistic knowledgeable. All of you is welcome in our co-created therapy space, as politics, gender identity, sexual orientation, racism and ableism are deeply intersectional with mental health.
