About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor that works with children and adults.

I believe that every person is the expert in their own lives and deserves to take an active role in their treatment. I view problems through an attachment-based lens and utilize various creative and trauma-informed techniques to help clients build upon their strengths while overcoming what has caused them pain.

I have ample experience working with clients struggling with personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, complex PTSD, and common childhood disorders. I specializes in dialectical behavior therapy, exposure response prevention, sandtray therapy and am certified in EMDR.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your care will cost.

Health care providers are legally required to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. Beyond the legal requirements, Stephanie Lauer Creative Counseling is committed to transparency.

Below is a list of your legal rights to a Good Faith Estimate:

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate In writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
