I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT) and have a specialization in Children and Adolescents. In 2003, I began working at a non-profit organization with at risk youth and their families. This gave me experience working with depression, anxiety, ADHD, parenting, trauma, abuse, relationship issues, and crisis intervention. In 2015, I moved on to do private practice with children, teens, individuals, couples, and families. In furthering my professional development, I read therapy related journals, attend conferences and trainings, stay up to date on law and ethics, and practice daily self-care.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and solution focused. I am an open-minded person by nature and have a great sense of humor. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive behavioral, and family systems. If interested, I use many forms of art and experiential therapy in order to better help teens express themselves. I use active listening, empathy, and compassion to form a therapeutic bond and will customize a treatment plan to meet your individualized goals.
I believe that you are the expert in your life, and I am here to support you in creating a framework for change. It takes self-awareness and courage to know that you need support and with some guidance, happiness is soon to follow. If you are ready to feel empowered, I am here to help you live your very best life.
I look forward to working with you!

Making progress and surfacing current needs
Stacy worked with my son on developing independence, socialization, and healing after a divorce. She identified a family dynamic I was unaware of that I can now work on to repair to help both me and my son.
Stacy is amazing. I have noticed a real improvement in my depression and anxiety since starting therapy with her.
Stacy is very compassionate and sympathetic. She is able to help talk through things with you, and helps you reach the answer you need.
