A Review from Kathryn Everest, Director of Counseling at Fort Worth Independent School District:
What I love about Stephanie Lerner is her ability to teach on relevant counseling topics. Whether she is teaching about best small group practices, amazing classroom guidance lessons or the importance of school counselor accountability measures, she is knowledgeable and she connects with her audience because she is authentic.
A Review from Tisha Kolek, Coordinator of Guidance Services at ESC 13:
Stephanie is a regular presenter at Education Service Center Region 13 for our area school counselors! Her content is current, relatable, and relevant to the work of counselors in our schools in the central Texas region. The materials and resources that the she provides in her presentations are invaluable to all who attend.

Speaking Engagements: Reviews
First of all, thank you so much for your presentation, my counselors really enjoyed and learned a lot. Thanks again!
-Amy Shedd, Counseling Specialist at Region 3 Educational Service Center
Thank you so much for a wonderful presentation. Everything was very real world and usable and on point. I was very impressed.
Hello! I really enjoyed your presentation on Monday at the LSSSCA conference. There were so many great resources. I already tried the Art-Wave activity and Grounding with a student. Thank you!
-Erica, School Counselor
Good morning, I am so excited to incorporate a lot of your ideas into my small groups and guidance lessons. Please keep doing what you are doing so that many more counselors can benefit from your teachings.
-Nathesha, School Counselor
Hello! I loved your presentation on ACES and your website! Would you mind sending it to me so that I can share with my other counselors and possibly our high school staff? Thank you!!
-Crystal, School Counselor
This was an awesome presentation. Thanks so much for sharing with me.
As the week closes and I reflect over highlights of the week, I wanted to thank you for the presentation on psychoeducational groups. I am so impressed with the breadth and depth of your knowledge and experience. I had an observation with a student who was doing an individual session at Bowie and we referred to the format that you had talked about group – e.g. including a skills lesson to build up the knowledge base rather than simply exploring feelings. I think the students really appreciated your comments. Thank you also for the flexibility in including the higher education settings in the presentation.
-UT Faculty Member
Thank you so much for the powerful information on groups that you provided during the TCA conference. That session was certainly one of the most helpful that I attended. I have only done one group at a time and would like to fill my schedule with more groups and fewer individual sessions in order to serve more students.
I was at the conference in Arlington and attended two of your workshops. By the way, they were very interesting and informational. I really enjoyed them.
I loved your insight, and felt much better after going to your session. Thanks for all your help!!
