Hello, I am Stacy!
I'm an Expressive Arts, Somatic, and EMDR therapist specializing in trauma and grief, licensed LMHCA with over 20 years experience in the medical and mental health field providing counseling to clients in need.
I earned my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Concordia University, Irvine. I've worked in many different clinical settings including hospitals, clinics, community mental health organizations, residential treatment centers, and group private practice. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience helping clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, cPTSD, and grief. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing childhood trauma, attachment issues, complicated grief, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, women's issues, and life transitions. I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.
I work collaboratively with clients to help them feel safe in their bodies, understand the impact of trauma and grief on our minds and nervous systems, as well as identify and change negative core beliefs to live a fulfilling life unapologetically. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part in. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
I look forward to meeting you!
