About Dr. Steffanie Grossman

My name is Dr. Steffanie Grossman (she/her/hers).  I am honored and appreciate that you have taken time to look into Dakota Therapy & Consulting.  I am a Licensed Psychologist, Certified Eating Disorders Specialist, brainspotting practitioner, and registered Animal-Assisted Therapist with a small dog named Rockstar.  I provide therapy in person and via secure online video conferencing (http://doxy.me) for a wide range of concerns, with specialties in the areas of eating disorders, self-esteem, and LGBTQ+ related concerns. Therapy is something I am very passionate about, and I truly enjoy helping my clients empower themselves to live the lives they wish to live and increase self-compassion.  After having learned first-hand the benefits of therapy for myself, I am very excited and eager to be able to provide a safe space for others striving to find their own healing.

I hope you embrace the strength and resiliency you have shown to make it to the moment that you are reading this statement.
