Stephanie J. Ryder, MSSA, LCSW, Adult, Children and Family Counseling

Quality Care You Can Count On


Stephanie Ryder is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with several years and experience working in the mental health field.  Stephanie graduated from Shippensburg University with a degree in psychology and anthropology.  In addition, she obtained a Masters of Science in Social Administration from Case Western Reserve University. Stephanie holds a national certification in Tobacco Treatment Practice.

  Stephanie enjoys working with adults, children and families that are experiencing issues related to trauma, grief, anxiety, terminal illness, family conflict or major life changes.  Stephanie also offers counseling from a Christian perspective while navigating through a biblical perspective to better understand and utilize healthy coping skills.

There comes a time when we need some guidance from a licensed professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. 

Since opening the doors of my practice, I have been able to provide patients with a wide range of counseling services. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face.

My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

You can look at all your past mistakes, your past pain, the parts of your story that you just want to forget and declare that they don't get to have the final say in your life.
