If you're looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. I am an interactive, solution-focused cognitive-behavioral therapist. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. I provide a non-judgmental environment and proceed with each client with compassion, empathy and understanding. I work with each client(s) to help build on their strengths and to attain their personal goal(s) they are committed to accomplishing.
Are you ready to change your life for the better? No matter what you are going through, remember: you are not your problem! Life is both complicated and stressful, and we are not born with "how-to" instructions or "live-life-this-way" manuals. We are all in a process of trying to find personal security while feeling our way through life. I invite you to work with me to untangle and understand your life, increase personal security and life satisfaction, and resolve issues and symptoms that are holding you back from becoming the person you really want to be.
Are you struggling with nightmares, flashbacks, sweaty palms, chewed finger nails because of your nerves? Is perfectionism, and people pleasing leaving you feeling blue? Let’s hit the reset button. Your cynicism will not allow you to heal. I’m the Clinician to direct you to reset button. You are meant to have a thriving headspace. I work with sweaty palms as well so we can work through this. Job/loss/transition, and low self-esteem need to find another headspace. Been there so I can help. Experienced in working in a diverse population, ethnicity, gender, spirituality, age, nationality, socio-economic status, and belief system.
I have 30 years of experience, skills, knowledge, and education in the areas of Social Work, and mental health.

We all need support sometimes. Life can be difficult. We can quickly feel overwhelmed and get consumed with negative thinking. When we don't have the tools to cope, in a healthy way to tolerate stressors, we can fall into destructive patterns. My counseling style is caring, supportive & intentional. I want you to feel understood so that you are comfortable enough to explore your emotions, expore tough issues and help you to gain insight into your situation. For those who identify with the Christian faith, we can discuss Godly principles. Whatever your beliefs or values are, it impacts our experiences. I am glad you're here.
ARE YOU UNHAPPY with yourself, your relationships, or your work? Your life doesn't have to be such a struggle. I can help you remember who you are and what you wanted before you derailed from yourself, your relationships, and your life.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT) and I have been licensed for almost 12 years but have worked in the field much longer. I have experience conducting individual, family and group therapy, both residential and in-patient settings with clients presenting with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, teen specific concerns, and a wide range of challenges including trauma, abuse, mood disorders, adjustment issues, personal growth and crisis.

One's deepest desire is to be truly accepted and understood. Yet, many times we find ourselves afraid of being judged or ridiculed for sharing our true thoughts, feelings, and challenges. In our busy lives it is a rarity to find someone who is not only equipped but also has the desire to truly listen to our deepest thoughts. It is my belief that if given the needed support and proper surroundings, we will find that we hold the answers within ourselves to overcome the challenges we are facing.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I use a comprehensive approach to considering how all aspects of a person’s life can impact overall well-being. I have 18 years of experience working with people of all ages, backgrounds, and individuals challenged with various problems or conflicts within themselves including interpersonal, romantic, work, family, etc. The goal is to help gain insight into the nature of your situation, as well as help, develop the skills for making changes that help you feel in control and happier. I will use tools to support your individualized healing journey.
Hello, my name is Stacey. I have been in the mental health field since 2013. I am fully licensed in California (2021), as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have provided services to Individuals and Families of all ages, struggling with all sorts of challenges such as adjusting to life’s stressors or changes, depression, anxiety, grief, behavioral issues, low self-esteem, poor decision-making skills, and poor communication skills. I like to combine different models such as Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Narrative Therapy to provide the best services for my clients.
As a post-modern therapist, I help clients find solutions to ‘life’ struggles and stressors. I also help clients change their narrative – ‘re-write their story and help clients see their issues from a different perspective. My approach is to help clients solve issues in a positive manner. I provide a genuine and empathic space for clients to be open and honest about issues. Together, the clients and I find solutions to improve the client’s quality of life, mental health, and increase overall wellbeing.
You have already taken your first step towards healing, and to you I send the warmest welcome. Through my multi-pronged approach, I will guide you through a treatment path catered to your needs and preferences. Whether you desire to peer into your subconscious and past relationships through psychoanalysis and psychodynamics, wish to tackle immediate change through dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapy, or choose to synthesize all of these modalities into your journey, I am here to meet you where you’re at. You are the expert on yourself, and I am simply a method for you to access what you already have within.
ONLINE SESSIONS. AVAILABLE NOW. Life can become quite a mess- sometimes you know why it's happened and sometimes you don't. Therapy can help. Are you having trouble with your relationship?

Discussing your situation honestly and directly, we create a plan to help you feel better and be better equipped to manage whatever life hands you.The tools acquired in therapy will assist you throughout your life. Sessions center around your needs and the goals you wish to accomplish.
My goal is to help you be the best you possible. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will begin to deal with long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I work with a variety of addiction issues including gambling addiction, eating disorders and addictive behaviors, and sex addiction.
