About me

I was drawn to the helping profession through my passion for relationships, experiences, and a desire to understand the emotional processes of healing. Life experiences have provided me with an ability to understand common patterns which affect most people in their journeys. I have a passion for emotional healing that improves relation and overall quality of daily experiences for individuals and family. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and
have been practicing since 2000. I initially started therapeutic services with under represented minority groups. Focusing on child and adolescents at risk due to lack of resources, and crisis stabilization. After about 11 years I decided to take time off to stay at home with my children. Being a first time mom gave me new perspectives on mental health with first time mothers, depression and anxiety of being a mom whether it is stay at home or a working mother. This prompted me to re educate myself and get experience with perinatal mood disorders. More recently I have been working with young adults transitioning into college. Helping with maladaptive internal and interpersonal psychological dynamics. Utilizing cognitive behavioral approaches to encourage clients to focus on thoughts and behaviors and encourage to make changes. I enjoy engaging in therapy with teens, young adults through older adults who have a desire or need for hope and change. Helping people find connection and improve communication is a privilege for me. My goal is to serve others and make a difference as I assist in the navigation of life challenges. In addition to my training and education I have children of my own and understand the struggles that parents experience along with various dynamics of family relationships.

In just a few sessions, working with Stacy has improved my mental state and way of living. She makes me feel validated and heard but also points out really important things I can work on to better my thinking and approach different situations. She is the most attentive and detailed therapist I've worked with. I can't recommend her enough!

I've had betterhelp for about 3 weeks now and Stacy is my therapist. This is my first time trying therapy, im a male and im 20 so it was kind of nerve-wracking for me going into it. I wasn't sure what to expect from my therapist. What would they tell me? Would they even show care in helping me with my problems? These were the thoughts going into my head before signing up. Now, ive only had a few sessions with Stacy but in those few sessions I've felt like I've been heard, i felt support and i found someone that i can easily talk to about my problems. It's hard to find people that genuinely want to help and i can tell that Stacy is a good person and loves what she does.
