Welcome! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you! You have taken the first step in a journey that can sometimes be intimidating, so you should be proud of yourself. I think you will find that I am very easy to talk to and eager to help you with whatever struggles you are facing. Here is a little bit about me and what you can expect from our sessions:
I have a Masters in Counseling and my LPC. I have a myriad of experience dealing with depression and anxiety as well as relationships and stress. Some of my biggest strengths include my ability to empathize and make people feel heard and validated. I believe that the most important thing in a counseling relationship is the actual relationship itself. If you don't feel connected to your counselor, you wont get anything out of your experience. Making that connection and making sure you feel safe, supported and confident are my main goals.
My therapeutic style involves helping you to identify things that can change immediately. Too often clients seek out help and leave feeling like they didn't get anything out of their session. I want you to be able to end a session feeling confident and empowered to begin to make the changes you need to help yourself in your journey. I want you to be open and honest with me at all times, and know that I will fully support you, but I will also challenge you. Growth often comes from discomfort, and I believe that a good counselor will meet you where you're at and continue to push you to where you want to be.
One important thing to know about me as a counselor is that I also understand your position as a client. I believe that any good counselor is also a client themselves, and continues to develop their own strengths and identify their weaknesses. Through my own experiences, I have learned invaluable tools to help my own clients and many of those have helped others to develop insights they didn't have before. I hope I will be able to do the same for you, and I look forward to working with you!

Stacy has really been a good impartial listener to me. It’s been helpful to get her feedback on a number of things and I like the format.
Stacy has been a very good counselor. She’s helped me work on forgiving myself for something in my past, and it’s been so great having someone to talk to. I’ve never spoken to a therapist before, but this has been a really good first experience! I highly recommend Stacy!
