She is an active and empathetic listener, utilizing an eclectic set of techniques based upon the ideals of unconditional positive regard for each individual.

By incorporating CBT in sessions, Stacy helps her clients improve this understanding, ultimately charting a path towards greater wellbeing and fulfillment. Stacy facilitates a nonjudgmental, welcoming environment which leads to growth and healing.
Stacy strongly believes in the power of play. Children often struggle when trying to process their emotions and verbalize how they are feeling to others.
