Stephanie Harris, MA, LPC
Born in Portland, Oregon, Stephanie spent her formative years falling in love with book nooks, rain and coffee shops. Encouraged by caring parents, Stephanie learned to express her emotions through music at a very young age. She preformed in a wide variety of choirs and musicals alongside her younger brother while in school, and believes that artistic expression is one of the most therapeutic modalities we have as humans. Stephanie met her now husband Christopher back in 2012, and they married and moved to Loveland, Colorado together in 2017. Chris started a woodworking business called “Harris Timberworks” back in 2018 and inspires Steph with his entrepreneurial spirit. Stephanie and Chris both love Jesus and experience him as the Source which sustains them day to day. They have a spunky toddler named Jack and a sweet family dog named Vin. St. Spyridon is their home church, and they cherish having friends and family close by. When Chris and Steph have down time they love playing video games, reading Brandon Sanderson books, playing instruments and making exquisite shots of espresso. They both love chasing Jack around the house, and find loads of joy in this precious season of discovering his little heart and personality.
