About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience working with people of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of contexts and settings.

I enjoy working with clients to overcome struggles with depression, stress and anxiety, among many other life challenges, by exploring and processing thoughts, feelings and behaviors to promote change and enhance your quality of life.

I have a special interest in working with adults, especially older adults and their families, navigating major life transitions. This involves changes that come with aging, which can include dementia, caregiving, end-of-life issues, grief, loss and bereavement.

My vision is to help my clients face difficult times, cope, and discover new possibilities and perspectives in life.

Knowing you are the expert of your life, I use a person-centered approach and collaborate with you, matching various therapeutic modalities to what will work best for you. I provide a comfortable, empathic and non-judgemental atmosphere in supporting you in accomplishing your goals.

I look forward to working with you!

Stacy is by far my favorite therapist I’ve ever had. She actually listens & remembers what we talk about. She is extremely kind and caring. No one else has helped me as much as she has. She’s the only therapist that has shown genuine interest/compassion/effort in our conversations! 10/10 recommend her for anyone who wants to see actual change.

I have been speaking with Stacy for a little less than two months. I would say one of the biggest and most helpful parts of the therapy is not only be listened to but the support and confirmation of my feelings. Sometimes when you are going through things and someone else agrees, confirms and understands what you are feeling and going through, it helps you to start the healing process and move forward.

I have had a variety of therapists throughout the years. I have struggled with depression and anxiety since I can remember. It has affected my life greatly. The last few years I’ve really struggled to keep a therapist. My work schedule was always hectic and making the time or going in person was always very difficult. I was really struggling about six months ago and I chose BetterHelp. I did not expect to feel so seen. Six months ago, I was burnt out from a toxic work environment, stuck in a terrible relationship, and just feeling chaotic and out of control. Today, I have moved on to working my dream job, left my old relationship, quit smoking, began taking yoga three times a week, and am working on applying for my masters. Stacy has helped me with this journey and I know she will continue too. I am so grateful for her walking this journey with me. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their therapist. I feel so much stronger, braver, positive and more fulfilled working with Stacy. I am so grateful to have found a therapist that is so flexible, kind, and helps me move through the hardships that life throws my way.
