Iektje Stephens, PhD, LSSP, Psychologist in Austin
When you are suffering, experiencing obstacles, or feeling stuck in your life you can use therapy as an opportunity for tremendous growth and transformation. I believe you already have everything you need to work with the challenges you are facing and successfully achieve your goals. We will work together to identify and remove obstacles that keep you from reaching your goals. As a therapist I feel privileged and moved watching my clients' inner strength, resilience, and resourcefulness come to fruition. If you would like to learn more about my approach to therapy, check out my website: www.drstephens-counseling.com.
I received my Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. I specialize in treating children, teens, and adults with anxiety, depression, disruptive behavior disorders, and relationship issues. With over fifteen years' experience working with children and families, I provide individual, couples, and family therapy.
I have extensive experience with psychological assessments of learning disabilities (e.g. ADD/ADHD, dyslexia). My background as a former teacher and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology enables me to facilitate collaboration between the school, parent, and child. Please note: I am licensed under my maiden name: Iektje van Bolhuis.
