Once the therapeutic relationship is established, Stacie determines which techniques and interventions will best fit the needs of each client. She specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy which entails exploring automatic and unhelpful thought patterns and restructuring them to be healthier, truer, and more helpful thoughts in living a happy and fulfilled life. This often calls for teaching mindfulness skills, which is a first step in learning to become aware and more in control of thoughts.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming. And trying to manage worry, panic attacks, or obsessive compulsive disorder can be challenging. You may find that the harder you try, the more you fight, the worse it gets. Far too often well meaning friends and family members weigh-in and try to help by offering advice of their own: Don’t worry about it. Think about something else. Just try to relax. Unfortunately these suggestions are rarely helpful. The truth is, anxiety can be managed. The solutions, however, are often counterintuitive.
