Introduction

Dr. Stephanie Burcusa is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in health and rehabilitation. She provides care to patients in the Benefis inpatient rehabilitation, weight loss, and neuroscience programs. Dr. Burcusa performs psychological assessments, provides psychotherapy, and offers education and support to patients and their caregivers.

“I was inspired to become a psychologist because I have seen what a difference mental health can make in achieving one's goals and feeling fulfilled in life,” says Dr. Burcusa.

She believes true health encompasses physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. She takes a holistic approach to helping her patients achieve optimal wellness, including placing a strong focus on social support and engaging in meaningful life experiences.

Dr. Burcusa sees her patients as the center of their own healthcare team. She encourages them to tell her if something’s not working because there are always other options to try. Dr. Burcusa’s ultimate goal is to empower her patients.

“I love the times when patients have their ‘aha!’ moments and make connections that they hadn't seen before. I also feel proud when patients can ‘graduate’ from working with me because they can anticipate what I will say and make the necessary changes independently,” she explains.

Outside of work, Dr. Burcusa finds joy in reading, photography, hiking, baking, quilting, and spending time with her family.
