Stephanie Witt, MA

Faculty Mentor, Behavioral Sciences

Areas of Interest and Expertise

Marriage and family therapy, sex education, relationship issues


Stephanie has enjoyed her years of work in the field as a therapist. From treating battered women and homeless adults on the West Coast, to teens and families on the East Coast, her experience is vast and diverse. She has worked with a juvenile offender program supporting families and teens, as the teens returned back to their communities from residential treatment facilities. She has worked in a treatment facility and enjoyed group therapy work with teen boys that even included developing team-building skills on a ropes course. More recently, Stephanie has worked at a family center with programs supporting teen mothers, foster families, and children, as well as court-ordered clients.

Each family and client always proves to have unique needs, whether it’s sex education or intensive anger-management therapy. Stephanie finds this exciting, challenging, and ultimately, very rewarding. She loves learning in life, and continues her own education and personal growth as a wife and mother. She is passionate about taking care of the earth and does her part to learn how we can all do more in this regard each day. Eating right and getting enough sleep are areas that Stephanie strives to improve upon with her family. She also loves to take classes at the gym to stay healthy. Kickboxing and soccer are her new favorite sports for exercise, and swimming with her children is where you can find her on a hot California weekend.
