Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Behavior Specialist. I have enjoyed over 12 years working in the mental health field, helping my clients change their lives in positive ways.
Those that I come alongside often say I provide warm, heartfelt support and professional guidance as they found hope and transformation through their struggles. Taking part in their journey as an expert guide, I have helped individuals navigate their way through depression, anxiety, relationship issues, lack of self-confidence, major life transitions, grief, and loss.
Refreshing to my clients, I have a unique and individualized approach to my counseling, while at the same time being highly educated and expertly trained in mental health. I make coping strategies simple and easy to apply in real life.
Cognitive-Behavioral, Person-Centered, Mindfulness, Trauma-Informed Care, and Strength-Based are just some of the theories that I draw from. I tailor my service in unique ways to support the specific needs of my clients while drawing from proven theoretical strategies.
During our sessions together, you can expect that we will sort through the challenges you are facing, choose the strategies that work the best while focusing on making the changes that matter the most to you. What's on your mind most and how may I support you is a theme of the service I provide.
I am confident of this: the life you want is already within your reach and the struggle that you are feeling right now is just temporary. You’ve already done the hardest part; you reached out and asked for help.
Now it's time for you to take the next best step.
Know I am here for you, as you begin this journey. Let’s take that next step, together.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Stacie Brethauer. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Stacie has helped me so much. She's a great listener and so supportive.
My counseling sessions have been very helpful
Since starting therapy with Stacie, all aspects of my life have transformed for the better. My life feels more balanced and I feel so much more confident, and at ease. To each therapy session, Stacie brings her expertise, warmth, support, and offers practical suggestions. Her presence emanates kindness, grace, and wisdom. I highly recommend Stacie! She is the best therapist.
Still getting to know Stacie but she has a great intuition for what people are feeling and experiencing despite the difficulty in communicating those kinds of things. I walk away from each conversation thinking in new and better ways about my life experiences and situation.
She is awesome
Although I have only been working with Stacie for a short time she has been very supportive and helpful
So far so good!
She makes me feel heard n understood. She allows there to be a space for me to share my thoughts without interrupting me, while also sharing her thoughts as well.
She's amazing. Great listener and a very supportive individual.
Stacie has been a very supportive therapist. I absolutely love her and her style of communication. She is ALWAYS prompt and on time and I feel refreshed after our conversations. She is the sounding board I've been looking for. I am glad we got matched up!
Stacie is exactly what I was looking for in a therapist. She is talented and knowledgeable in her field and is one of the kindest humans I have ever met.
Continue being grateful for all I have learned about myself thus far and for your technique of helping me help and understand myself better. Your patience, empathy, stillness, grace, “holding space” nature have truly enabled this caterpillar to break out of its cuccoon.
She’s the best. She’s helped me more than anyone else in my life and I am eternally grateful for her guidance, understanding, and gifts.
Stacie has been so incredibly helpful to me! Through our regular video sessions, she has listened to my needs and has responded with great compassion and pragmatism. She has provided a series of practical and easily-implementable strategies that have helped me work through my problems in a productive way. After only a short time, I already feel more equipped to handle my anxiety and any new stresses that come my way. She's fantastic!
Stacie has been ver supportive and available to help with both my daily issues should one arise as well as our weekly sessions actively listening and asking the right questions.
Stacie is always patient and understanding.
Life changing! I wish I hadn't waited so long !
Stacie literally had saved my life. After going through a heartbreaking breakup she brought me back to a happy place just by letting me work through and feel what I was feeling. She is always on time for our sessions and responds to any questions I have in a timely fashion. Simply put, she is the best and I am truly thankful to have found her and BetterHelp.
Stacie has been beyond amazing and truly the reason I have stuck with therapy and Better Help. She is so understanding and helps me so deeply with issues that I can’t recognize myself sometimes. She has helped me get through so much and become empowered. I love Stacie!
Stacie has been a godsend for me. I finally feel like I am getting help for the first time in my life.
I’ve only had 1 session with her but she was amazing the first session!
Stacie is amazing. Some people were put on earth to do something, and Stacie was put here to help people heal. I don't know how I would have survived without her guidance and support over the past many months.
It is an absolute breath of fresh air having Stacie to talk with. She is friendly, knowledgeable and deeply compassionate. My quality of life is improving with each conversation we have.
She is competent, compassionate, patient and knowledgeable. I can’t express enough how grateful I am to have found a therapist I can connect with especially it being my first time in therapy. I would highly recommend her.
Stacie is a caring, compassionate professional with great insight. She is truly a wonderful counselor.
Speaking with Stacie weekly is like talking with an old friend. I have never personally met her but, it does feel like I've known her for years. It really helps with opening up.
It's also been wonderful to hear a little bit about her own struggles with things so you don't feel like "it's only me."
I feel like I have made so much progress and even share the help I have gotten from Stacie, to friends and family who are so proud of the ways I handle things now! I absolutely recommend her! She’s amazing!! I couldn’t have been paired with someone better!
Stacie has seen me through a really difficult yet impactful part of my life. I’m so happy she came across my path and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a compassionate, straight-forward therapist
My experience with Stacie is new but it’s already been life changing. This is my first time seeking the help she has been providing and I don’t regret one minute of it. Thank you to BetterHelp for providing an amazing platform and thank you Stacie for walking into my life.
Stacie is a very compassionate therapist. She is skilled and knowledgeable in her field and has helped me feel at ease during a tough time. Stacie knows what questions to ask, how to focus on the issue at hand, and how to offer solutions to problems with good insight as to what would benefit her clients most. Words cannot describe how much she has helped me feel more comfortable and safe in confiding in her. I would highly recommend Stacie!
I had 4 sessions with Stacie and it was just what I needed. She was warm, insightful, intuitive, and responsive. It took her no time at all to figure out who I am and where my stuck points are. She remembered details about my thoughts and experiences from one session to the next which made me feel heard and lent a continuity to the process. I will likely seek her out again in the future, and I would highly recommend her to new members!
I love talking with Stacie. She was so open with me when we first talked and she lead us to great conversations using the right questions. I look forward to talking to her every week and she’s already helped me do much after just talking with her twice.
Stacie is not only knowledgeable but empathetic - I’m so grateful I’ve found her on this path to healing and better living.
Though Stacie & I haven't been working together for very long, I felt a connection right away with her. Often in therapy it takes several sessions to "get to know" each other & to develop trust. From the first session though, Stacie was able to communicate in a way that made me feel seen, understood, & supported. There is no "filler" when working with her; she makes every minute of the session count by listening, rephrasing what she hears, & providing practical suggestions and "homework" that foster self-compassion & growth outside of session. I am so grateful that I have been able to work with her. Already I am experiencing tremendous shifts in my awareness, setting better boundaries, & feeling encouraged to practice vulnerability & authenticity.
