Stephanie Preston-Hughes

Stephanie is a licensed mental health counselor in private practice specializing in care for LGBTQ+ clients. She previously worked with college students, domestic violence survivors, and hospice care patients. She is an Ohio native who has called Orlando home since 1998. Stephanie advocates for marginalized groups as an expression of her Quaker faith. She draws inspiration from Jesus and civil rights activist Bayard Rustin to be an “angelic troublemaker” for positive social change in her communities. She loves facilitating groups that keep it simple, go deep, and tap into our collective spiritual wisdom. Her proudest accomplishments are learning to swim at age 34 and staying sober for over ten years. Stephanie and her wife Elizabeth, a lifelong Methodist, love being parents to rescue dogs Smokey, Max, and Milton. They are both learning to become anti-racist.
