"It was really challenging sharing my story and Dr. Stephanie Fumi Hancock's approach helped me to really dig deep and she really threw the words out of me because she wanted to experience what I have experienced so that meant that I had to take her on the road. I had to throw my words articulately, the smells, the colors what I felt so she could also feel it as well. Which really laid the platform for how she wanted others to also view my story. I found this technique to be quite eye-opening for me because there is a part of my story that I actually have forgotten about..."
"My story circled around child molestation and I was raped when I was around 14. I know myself have lived in denial and numbed myself because of my cousin who got me pregnant and removed that baby by himself. Dr. Stephanie Fumi Hancock's method of therapy is...I've never seen that before. She helped me tell my story of trauma and pain that I thought I had walked away from. This time around, she held my hand and she had me in her palms...she was the mother that was never there for me, she was the sister...Her style of therapy is amazing."
"I had trouble sharing my story until I met Dr. Stephanie Fumi Hancock. She helped me to not only share my story but to understand it wasn't my fault, I have nothing to be ashamed of. I appreciated her and highly recommend her. She helped me to move forward."
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner?
Psychiatric NPs assess and diagnose patients, provide psychotherapy and prescribe medication. They treat patients with diagnosed disorders, as well as those with family histories or other factors that increase the likelihood of potential mental illness.
We valuate and diagnose developmental issues, trauma, neurological dysfunction, and other psychological disorders.
We’ll work with doctors to track progress and change care plans when needed.

We help patients who’ve suffered trauma, been abused, or been the victim of a crime.
