“Patients here are helped in ways that I never thought was possible in a hospital setting,” says Stephanie Mazzanti, Mind-Body Therapist for Stakeholders (employees) at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) near Chicago. “It is very rewarding to help those who are in turn helping our patients.”
Mazzanti studied Applied Psychology at the University of Illinois, Chicago, earning her Bachelor of Science in 2008. She completed a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Roosevelt University in Chicago in 2010. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor through the American Psychological Association.
In 2009, Mazzanti joined a regional behavioral health hospital as a mental health counselor, where she focused on assessing patient stability; leading group work on relaxation, communication and emotional management; and working with family members. She later became a therapist there, leading group therapy sessions, managing individual cases and working closely with patients and families.
Mazzanti joined CTCA® in 2013. As Mind-Body Therapist for Stakeholders, she provides individual therapy sessions, group yoga, group meditation and other services for staff members. With an approach grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mazzanti helps CTCA providers find ways to cope with difficult situations and stay balanced.
“Working under stressful circumstances can take its toll,” says Mazzanti. “I help people work through these challenging times, identify unhealthy patterns and implement more effective ways of coping.”
In addition to being a licensed counselor, Mazzanti is an E RYT 200 certified yoga instructor.
When she is not at CTCA, Mazzanti enjoys spending time with her pug, Killer, traveling, and practicing yoga.
