Stephanie Shillig, AMFT
When Stephanie first learned about wilderness therapy, she felt like it was a dream job that combined two of her favorite things: helping people and working out in nature. Soon after, she began her journey with wilderness therapy as a field guide, working with both adolescents and adults. At this time, Stephanie was also trained to work as a family coach, where she taught clients and their parents skills to help strengthen their family dynamics, while also helping to facilitate family workshops. Her focus on the importance of the family system greatly influences how Stephanie works with her clients and how she views their presenting problems. Stephanie is also guided by her diverse experience in the mental health and education fields, which include working as a Registered Behavior Technician with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and training in ABA therapy. Stephanie’s preferred treatment modalities include Transgenerational Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Experiential Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Stephanie is originally from Los Angeles, CA, and moved to Utah in 2014. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from California State University, Fullerton, and her Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University. She graduated both programs with Honors. Stephanie loves going on adventures outdoors, dancing to live music, and enjoying good food with loved ones. She also loves traveling, and has lived in Belgium and France.
