About me

I have spent the last fifteen years working with individuals, families, and couples in a variety of settings. My primary focus has been working with individuals to understand and cope with childhood trauma, PTSD symptoms, managing and coping with chronic illness, and working through the grief process in organic ways to allow oneself to move forward in healthy ways. I am solution and client focused. I strive to meet each individual where they are and assist them in navigating their life in the way that works best for them.

She's help see things. When I couldn't see or wouldn't. I really appreciate her advice and efforts

Staci is a wonderful person and has helped me through so much! Even though she didn’t specialize in helping transgender individuals through their journey, she did so much good in helping me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a little help in their life.

I've already recommended better help to too close friends of mine that have signed up and started getting help. In the short time that Stacy and I have been working together I have made significant progress with things I've been struggling with most of my life. Feel like her expertise have given me the tools I need to continue improving. She's very relatable and understands what I've been through. It's been life-changing to have such a confidant that I can be completely vulnerable with.

Staci is the first counselor I've had that dug in deep and let me be honest and open and vulnerable while not letting me off the hook about things. She's absolutely awesome.

Staci is a very attentive and empathetic professional. I feel like I'm doing quick progress with my problems. Very good interaction from the beginning. I don't feel judged at all and I feel safer and calmer after doing video calls with her. I feel very comfortable during video calls and that doesn't happen a lot for me!

I like that Staci responds to my walls of text daily. It makes me feel engaged with her and the process feels continuous. Looking forward to my conversations with her!
