Stella Dobry Counseling

Child, Adolescent, and Family Therapy


I offer a range of counseling services to children, adolescents, and adults. My approach is client-centered and utilizes practices from evidence-based therapies including cognitive behavioral (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), dialectical behavioral (DBT), family systems, mindfulness, and emotionally focused therapy (EFT). Because each individual and family is unique, I tailor my approach to build on your strengths and meet your needs.

Areas of Focus

Women's Issues

Children & Adolescents

From more than ten years of experience working with hundreds of youth in recreational and therapeutic settings, I connect easily with young people. I empathize with their struggles and instill hope in their future. I help them develop skills they need to feel good about themselves and be successful in the real world. Common issues addressed include anxiety, depression, OCD, stress management, divorce adjustment, trauma, family and peer relationships, self-esteem, behavioral challenges, and self-harm behaviors. I use a variety of techniques including art and play therapy to engage youth of all ages in the therapy process.


Many adults face challenges managing the stresses of life. I offer emotional support and concrete tools for dealing with anxiety, depression, OCD, grief, relationship difficulties, parenting, and women's issues. I am especially sensitive to the needs of women experiencing challenges during pregnancy and postpartum.


Family relationships can be complex. With my specialized training in family therapy, I work to help families understand relationship dynamics, resolve conflict, and strengthen bonds. I also specialize in helping parents develop effective parenting practices.


Whether you are struggling with communication, the effects of infidelity, or you just don't feel close to your partner anymore, counseling can help. I work with couples to re-build trust, change negative patterns, and develop skills that lead to stronger relationships.
