Learn About Stephanie Liebling...
I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker in Kansas (LSCSW). This means I have completed a Masters degree
in Social Welfare, two years of educational practicums and over 4,000 hours of supervised practice in Clinical Social Work. I passed the Kansas Licensed Master’s Social Worker exam and the Kansas
Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker Exam. Additionally, I have received a license to practice in Missouri (LSCW). My Master’s degree training was in the Strengths Perspective and I have sought
out additional therapeutic skills in Bowen Family Systems Theory.
Previously, I have received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Kansas State University and an Associate of Arts and Sciences in Sign Language Interpretation from Johnson County Community College. I have worked for almost a decade with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.
My fluency in American Sign Language has allowed me to work within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community providing direct therapeutic services.
I specialize in Play Therapy – a specialized treatment modality that involves specific techniques typically practiced with children from ages 4-13 (but not limited to children). In addition to the 4,000 hours of supervised therapeutic practice for my clinical license, I have completed over 150 hours of continuing education specific to Play Therapy and clinical supervision in the practice of Play Therapy.
Post-licensure I have developed my skills by attending hundreds of hours of continuing education courses, and many thousands of hours of counselling experience. I have been fortunate to have supervised several social work master’s students in their practicum locations.
Recognizing the need for therapists with sign language fluency skills and Play Therapy skills, I established my private practice in 2006. I provide individual, couples and family therapy across the life span.
I have also provided a link that includes my training, affiliations and education, should you desire additional information on my background.
