All About Stephonia Llewellyn , LMHC

Stephonia Llewellyn, LMHC

Hi! My name is Stephonia (pronounced Steff-phone-knee-yah). I mainly work with children and teens who are experiencing issues across different areas of their life. I have experience in processing traumatic experiences, anger management problems, different mood disorders, and anxiety management. Many children do not communicate well with spoken words but will tell you everything you need to know through play. I utilize various different toys in order to make children feel safe and comfortable and allow them to have an outlet, to express themselves clearly. Teenagers are often lectured and told what they should do instead of being heard by others. No one wants to hear “I told you…” all day long, which unfortunately is what most of our teens hear. I really enjoy being able to connect with the kids. Because I look closer to their age, many children and teens are able to trust me much more easily. It’s funny because I often hear from my teens “my mom told me the same thing, but now that you said it, it makes more sense”. Sometimes our kids need to hear it from someone else in order to fully understand. Caretakers are superheroes and are more than capable of doing everything on their own. What we need to remember is that all the good superheroes have sidekicks, who assist in different facets of their life. I am definitely a sidekick: a person to lean on that is dependable and always willing to help.
