About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Missouri and Illinois with over 20 years experience working as a mental health/addictions therapist. I have worked with people across all age groups in a variety of treatment settings on concerns including depression, anxiety, history of trauma, thoughts of death, self injury, mood swings and addictions.

My therapy style is of compassion and acceptance. I believe that each person holds inherent wisdom and my role is to help my clients build a deeper connection with theirs. My approach is a mixture of dialectical behavioral (DBT), cognitive, mindfulness, and client centered strategies. I will tailor our approach and goals to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to make the first step towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by K.R. on Sep 20, 2022 after therapy with Stacy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

It has been a godsend working with Stacy the past two weeks. I’ve been through so much honestly for so many years… it’s a blessing to have someone just “get it”. To feel heard and understood, not judged - and then to receive active compassion and for the first time feeling like I’m not alone in dealing with everything. I’m very grateful for the match up and look forward to what I might be able to achieve by continuing my therapy. It gives me hope of making it through the tunnel life has tossed me.

Stacy made me feel comfortable from the beginning. She’s a great listener and she’s very kind. She made me feel like I wasn’t alone and gave me the tools to feel better about what I was going through. I would highly recommend Stacy as a therapist.

Stacy Scotty has been a wonderful therapist to me so far. We have only had a limited number of sessions but every session I have had I feel heard, listened to and supported. She checks in through the week which for me is significant and when I specifically expressed a need I wanted addressed she heard me and responded to my needs by giving me homework to make me think about and understand my thoughts snd feelings. This us what I want ftom a therapist. I am very happy with my experiences so far with her.

Stacy Scott has tuned into my changing needs as events happen in my life. I’m dealing with chronic health issues in my close family and things change day to day.
