Stacey Kiger

(LPC, LMHP)

About Me

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.

Stacey has been wonderful to talk to, and has helped me learn new coping mechanisms in these unprecedented times. Easy to talk to, as she creates a space where you feel heard and understood.

Stacey is really helping me with the issues I am wanting to work on. She has given me perspective that no other therapist has offered before. For the first time in my life I actually feel a change in myself. Something I've never felt with any other therapist in my life.

Stacey has heard me and helped me dig deeper and find new ways to think about the things I'm dealing with. She has been so easy to talk to. It's so incredibly helpful to know that if I need to vent or let something out I can message her and I know she will get back to me and help me through whatever is going on.

It's hard to accept a lot of what Stacey is telling me just because I've spent so long believing the opposite. But Stacey is awesome!

She’s a damn good counselor!

Written by D.E. on May 31, 2019 after counseling with Stacey for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

I feel like she grasps issues quickly, we were able to tackle some problems during a crisis, that helped me get myself moving, and not stay stuck. While the online experience is not perfect, it's very helpful to have someone to email at any time.

Written by N.A. on Feb 02, 2019 after counseling with Stacey for 2 years and 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and depression

Stacey has been my counselor for a short time but in that short time she has answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. She has asked me great questions to help deepen my understanding of what I need to do to move forward. I highly recommend her and using BetterHelp for Moms who are too busy to make an extra appointment outside of work, taking care of the kids, and the household. It’s been so convenient to be able to vent via text or have deep questions and concerns written down for Stacey to read carefully and respond to me. I feel heard and supported!

Written by K.R. on Nov 13, 2018 after counseling with Stacey for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

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.

Although I've only started working with Stacey, I've found her to be very professional.

Written by B.R. on May 10, 2017 after counseling with Stacey for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and self esteem

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

Written by K.A on Jun 07, 2016 after counseling with Stacey for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

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!!
