My name is Stephanie Klein. I was born and raised in Miami, FL and began my education by receiving a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in behavioral healthcare from the University of South Florida. In 2015, I moved to NY for graduate school, receiving a Master’s degree in occupational therapy from Columbia University. I have been a full-time practicing clinician for 4 years and have experience working with adults and children, providing individual and group services in English and Spanish. In 2019 I began my journey with the University of Central Florida towards a Master’s Degree in Social Work, with a clinical specialty. Upon graduation in 2023, I plan to become licensed and then work towards my LCSW.
I have always had an interest in pursuing a career in counseling. During my time working as an occupational therapist, I continued experiencing a drive towards the social work field and eventually took the jump to complete my second master’s degree.
I believe my experience in working with a diverse group of children, adults, and families during vulnerable times will help me flourish as I move into the field of social work.
From my personal experience with therapy, I truly believe in the transformative bond that forms within a supportive and safe therapeutic relationship.
As an MSW intern, I hope to apply my experience and build on my skills to walk alongside clients in their journey to blossoming. I strive to provide a space in which clients know they are seen and heard.
I am looking forward to working with children, teens and adults with a special interest in childhood trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, and life transitions. I am also interested in group and family dynamics, and the workings of developing healthy and satisfying relationships. I have extensive experience working with children with special needs and developmental delays.
I am incredibly excited to be part of the Blossoming Lotus Therapy team and know I will grow from working under the supervision of an established clinician, as well as from the clients that I will be privileged to share space and time with. I am eager to begin this work and thank all of you in advance for your trust and vulnerability.
I look forward to connecting with you.
