Dr. Stewart believes that mental health support should be culturally relevant and trauma-informed. From her many years teaching clinical practices, Dr. Stewart has developed a unique style to mental health support that she brings to counseling at Studio Hope. The function of Studio Hope is not to engage in therapy typical of most treatment modalities, but to instead provide counseling and coaching informed by therapeutic best practices and catered to the unique needs of each person. She believes individuals are the experts of their lived experiences, and her counseling philosophy honors that.
Dr. Stewart has an psychology degree from Rutgers University [BA], a social work degree from Columbia University [MSSW], and a PhD from The Ohio State University. She has served as a Professor and Administrator teaching and granting degrees to mental health professionals.
Dr. Stewart specializes if familial trauma, relationships, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, race-based stress, identity-based stress [accutulturative stress, insidious trauma and historical trauma], and unique stressors to people in high-profile roles and careers.
