Stacy has been married to her husband for over 30 years. They have 2 adult daughters who live nearby, one grandson, and 3 dogs and 2 cats. As a couple, Stacy and her husband enjoy spending family time together, traveling, working on their land, and volunteering at the Juvenile Correctional Facility in Mart. Involvement in the Epiphany Ministry for juvenile offenders is what prompted Stacy to return to college to get her counseling degree. In mentoring to the incarcerated adolescents, she recognized the enormous difference spiritual guidance, positive role models, and supportive environments could make in their lives. Stacy also has a heart for our Veterans and first responders who are exposed to trauma, as well as people who are dealing with sexual abuse. She has successfully worked with people diagnosed with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, dissociative disorders, and anxiety disorders.

Professional Disclosure Statement

For some people, difficult situations can lead to temporary depression, or feelings of “being stuck”, not knowing how to move forward. Others may fight life-long battles with depression, or other brain chemical imbalances. Both groups often need to learn better coping skills for everyday living. I use counseling techniques to help clients move towards “recovery” as they define it. I am somewhat eclectic in use of counseling disciplines but the theories I use most are Cognitive, Behavioral, and Adlerian. The underlying strategy is that thoughts, feelings, and emotions are interrelated. By changing one of those elements, the others will change accordingly. In therapy, I will always consider the individual and work collaboratively with the client to achieve their goals.


Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Specialized training through the Veteran’s Association for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with both adults and children using Cognitive Behavior and Cognitive Processing Therapy.

First Responder Certified Counselor and Critical Incident Training

Certified in Critical Incident Training by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to help first responders or military personnel deal with the emotional distress of being a witness to, or serving in tragic events.

Mental Health First Aid

Presentation of Adult Mental Health First Aid to increase education and reduce the stigma about people who are living with a mental health diagnosis. This course is ideal for community professionals, clergy, police officers, homeless shelter staff, or anyone who frequently has contact with people who have mental health issues.


Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a mental health treatment technique that involves moving the eyes in a specific way while processing traumatic memories. EMDR mimics experiences in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.  Empirical research confirms there is a link between eye movement and thought processing. Clinical trials demonstrate this technique is effective and can often help a person faster than traditional therapy methods. The goal of EMDR is to help one  heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences.
