Hello! I have an M.A. in Forensic Psychology from Argosy University and an M.S.Ed in Mental Health Counseling from Old Dominion University (ODU). I completed a 4,000 hour residency after graduation from ODU and I now hold credentials as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) . I have worked in a variety of settings to include outpatient, intensive in-home, and therapeutic day treatment, providing individual, group, family, and couples therapy to adults, adolescents, and children. I have experience in working with client's who struggle with symptoms from depression, anxiety, and stress, as well as working with clients who have family conflicts and parenting issues.
My clinical orientation is primarily two evidenced based practices and includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Reality Therapy (RT). However, I fully believe in meeting the client where they are and therefore it is as equally important for me to be flexible to the client's needs. Counseling is not about me telling you what to do, but me joining you on your journey and guiding you in your discoveries to what solution or outcome is best suited for you.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
I also have experience in Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

My counselor is very professional. She understands and respects me, as well as, helps me work through my problems. I was worried when I first started using BetterHelp that it wouldn’t be professional or that the expertise wouldn’t be there, but Stacey is amazing. It’s so obvious she knows what she’s doing and talking about. I love her and this app and tell everyone I know about it.
Stacy is wonderful: responsive, smart, and kind. She's also very wise and I've learned to trust her insights. I'd recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone as a counselor. I'm so glad she was assigned to me!
Stacey is very compassionate yet professional in her communication. She keeps the conversation moving forward in a positive direction and helps me to feel empowered.
Just started with Stacy and she already understood my problems. She made me feel like I wasn't alone in the way I felt. She took the time to listen and she responded in detail. If there is anyone I would recommend, it's her.
Stacey is very attentive and gives detailed responses to what she has read and it's obvious she is actually actively listening her approach is helpful
Stacey is a great counselor. She is thoughtful and I truly believe she reads and considers my long posts! I would recommend her to anyone for assistance. She asks great questions and offers helpful suggestions.
Although I've only started working with Stacey, I've found her to be very professional. She's attentive to small details and she really seems to have a good grasp of understanding what it is you're trying to convey. I feel she has a genuine concern and interest, and always response promptly. Highly recommended!
She has been extremely helpful and asked all the right questions and I have felt comfortable discussing issues with her. She seems to be very knowledgeable and professional and I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
At first I thought she or this app wouldn't be any help to me, but I quickly realized that was my negativity and discomfort talking. She really helped me discuss what's going on even when it wasn't easy but necessary. Now I'm starting to see the beauty on the other side! Thank you :D
Very helpful and always responds within a great time
Stacey is great - I am really enjoying having her as my counselor! She is very kind, and she has already helped me begin to understand my feelings and experiences, and how they've shaped me into who I am today, after only one live session. I definitely recommend Stacey!
Stacey is a fantastic counselor! She makes it very easy to open up about your concerns and asks good probing questions that really make you consider things from a different perspective.
Stacey has been great through my separation and divorce and helped me think about myself during these times and the steps to overcome fears, doubts, and the difficulties that I've been having along the way.
Stacey has made me feel very comfortable talking about issues I'm having. I feel like she really listens to what I'm saying and has my best interests in mind when she offers insights and suggestions.
Stacey is wonderful, she is super patient and helpful! It is reassuring knowing she is there, listening, thinking of ideas to help me navigate life's difficulties amd get on track.
She's great, been very helpful and a good listener. Prompt at getting back with me.
Stacey is wonderful. She's always kind and sympathetic, but also observant: she points out aspects I don't see or can't articulate. She's a good "listener." Stacey always encourages me to share and in doing so, is gradually helping me feel better. Good job, Stacey!!
I just love Stacey I really have enjoy working with her. She always has the best advice to help with any situation that I am dealing with at the time of my life. Thanks for all your love and support. I highly recommend Stacey to anybody.
