Stacey sees adults and adolescents ages thirteen and up in individual counseling for a range of issues including: depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, infidelity recovery, postpartum anxiety/depression, academic anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, and boundary issues.
There are many reasons couples choose to come to counseling including: conflict resolution, adaptation to family stress/job loss/relocation issues, parenting, adoption, difficulties in communication, or just to increase closeness and relationship satisfaction.
Stacey has specialized training and experience in helping couples recover from infidelity and betrayal. The discovery or confession of an affair brings a myriad of painful emotions and often so much confusion that people have no idea where to begin, or what to do next. Stacey can help you develop a plan for healing and restoration that includes:
- Understanding why the affair happened
- Learning to understand each other
- Communicating honestly and compassionately
- Building empathy and respect
- Working through forgiveness
- Establishment of boundaries
- Rebuilding trust
- Relapse prevention
- Restoration of joy, peace, and honor to the relationship
Premarital or Pre-engagement Counseling
Stacey is a certified provider for Prepare/Enrich, the # 1 premarital and marriage assessment for the past 35 years. The assessment can be tailored to variables such as faith, blended families, remarriage, or first time marriages. Stacey combines the powerful Prepare/Enrich assessment and training tools with her experience teaching communication, conflict resolution, and healthy attachment styles. Premarital or pre-engagement counseling is done in a 6 session package at a discounted rate to make completion of the program more affordable in the wake of wedding expenses. Included in the premarital counseling package is an extra “booster” counseling session that the couple can use any time during their first year of marriage.
Technology has allowed greater access to counseling for clients who were previously unable to attend sessions or who had to terminate counseling because of travel, school, relocation, or medical issues. Stacey offers counseling via telephone or via secure and HIPAA compliant online video conferencing, which can be good options for clients who are not available for in-office sessions.
