She then went on to complete her residency in Psychiatry at the University of Florida where she received accolades for her abilities as a psychotherapist.
In the many roles Dr. Stefan has held throughout the 10 years as a psychiatrist, one thing remains constant, which is her strong commitment to her patients and ensuring that she treats all aspects of the life of her patients. She is a firm believer in addressing the patient as a whole, not as a diagnosis, as every patient is unique and has their own set of psychosocial circumstances.
What has defined Dr. Stefan throughout her career is her deep connection to her patients, her ability to provide meaningful psychotherapeutic interventions in all her encounter and her mission to remain committed to the unique needs of her patients. Her patients have described her as being very personable as well as having an engaging and caring style when it comes to her patient interactions. Having worked in multiple telemedicine settings since 2013, Dr. Stefan will ensure that her patient's telehealth experience equates to or exceeds an in-person encounter.
