Dr. Stephanie de la Houssaye, PsyD, LPC, NCC

Catholic Christian Counselor

Brain Health Directed Licensed Professional Counselor


My Treatment Approach:

-Catholic Christian Counseling – I have been trained to give good guidance in a matter of being co-operative with the Holy Spirit, being sensitive to my client and circumstances, and being disciplined not to get in the way so that God can work with His people. I am careful not to problem-solve, give advice, and make decisions for my client. The goal is to foster freedom and maturity.

-Brain Health Directed Licensed Professional Counselor – I have been trained in the Amen Clinic’s Method. Dr. Amen considers using the tools learned in the training program as the next best thing to going to the Amen Clinic for a brain SPECT scan evaluation. These tools can help determine an individual’s unique brain type without ever having a brain SPECT scan evaluation. The Amen Clinic’s Method provides insight as to the various brain system issues that may be present.

I use these tools simply as educational resources to provide to my clients help to better understand the biological component of their behavior, and at the same time inform me so that I can guide them on a path to achieve their goals in a more targeted manner.

My Qualifications:

I obtained a Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD), Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (LPC-S), National Certified Counselor (NCC), Amen Clinic Certified Brain Health Coach, and Certified Health & Wellness Coach.

My Experience:

  • I have worked in the helping profession since 1996. My first position was as a Child Advocate in a battered women’s shelter. I loved this position so much I continued to work with children and women who experienced abuse for the majority of my career


  • I also worked with an Employee Assistant Company for several years, where I conducted presentations in the workplace on wellness. In the role of counseling for the Employee Assistant Company, I provided crisis counseling with my certification in crisis intervention. Then In 2003, I worked exclusively with children and families in the foster care system. I went to court to advocate for the children and families who experienced abuse. I continued this work till 2008.


  • Then I joined a Christian Counseling Center, which took me on my path into Christian Counseling. At that time, I also obtained my certification as a Supervisor Licensed Professional Counselor, which allowed me to supervise counselors working on licensure.


  • Then I went into the Catholic School system for six years to work with children and teenagers as an academic advisor.


  • I went back to school as a student in 2016 to obtain my Doctorate in Psychology. As I worked on my doctorate, I opened Health & Counseling Center to serve my community by offering counseling, naturopathic medicine, and exercise with prayer to restore the mind, body, and soul. I love being a counselor, and every day I find new ways to learn to help better serve each one of my clients.
