Counseling & Psychotherapy
If you are taking the time to read this, it appears your life may not be where you would like it to be. Life is sometimes difficult and we are not always taught good coping skills. Often people go through life with the coping skills that their family has modeled. You are an individual person and your family’s way of coping may not work for you. This is where therapy comes in. Together we can examine what is going on in your life and how you are addressing it. We can then examine ways to improve your life through employing new coping skills tailored to your individual strengths.
If you have suffered trauma in the past, everyday life can be overwhelming. I utilize a technique called EMDR to help reduce the emotional response you may still be feeling from the trauma. If you are tired of the trauma ruling your life, let me assure you there can be relief. People’s lives are transformed with EMDR. My favorite thing to hear is “I don’t need you anymore.”
Couples come to the relations from different family cultures and carry on the patterns from their past. This can be a struggle due to communication break downs and different expectations of each partner. Sometimes the stress of life can curb sexual enthusiasm. If you are tired of struggling in your relationship we can collaborate to help each of you better communicate with your partner and express your needs in a loving manner.

My name is Dr. Stacy and I am a Certified Clinical Sexologist and Sex Coach. I work with individuals as well as couples of any sexual orientation or gender identity to help them reach their intimate and sexual goals as well as dating concerns. As a coach, we work together to see what you are wanting to gain from the session where we use communication, education and home assignments, to get you where you are happy with who are are intimately and sexually. I offer a complimentary 15 minute session to determine if sex coaching is right for you and then move forward from there to find the best action plan for you.

Private Intensive Outpatient & Inpatient Drug-Recovery Programs
The Beachcomber Intensive Outpatient Services is designed for those who cannot go to inpatient or residential treatment AND for those seeking aftercare for an inpatient program. The Beachcomber Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to expand on the thoughts and ideas, which allowed our inpatient or residential program, The Beachcomber Family Center for Addiction Recovery, to build over 38 years of successfully treating those afflicted with alcoholism and drug addiction. This includes an emphasis on structure, discipline, hope, self-esteem, fun and especially the tools to stay sober after the IOP experience is completed.
The stresses and strains of parenting, marriage, work, school, and life can be overwhelming and can affect your ability to cope. The aim of my practice is to help individuals, couples, and families gain relief from emotional pain and suffering. Whether it is for you, your teenager, your spouse, or your family, help is on the way!
I am a practical, interactive-SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPIST. I do not believe in suffering! My style is warm, engaging and direct. I like to get right to the issues. I strive to connect with each of my clients in a way that will make them feel comfortable and understood. Any issue that you have is an issue that I will be there to help guide you through. No issue is too small, I am here to validate you, not judge you.
In addition, I believe in psychodynamic psychotherapy, meaning that when the client comes to talk about their symptoms, I address the underlying issues that may be causing the symptoms. Understanding the underlying causes of the issue will lead to longer-term change, and away with those symptoms! My hopes are to help clients not only resolve their immediate issues, but to give them the tools and skills to carry through lifes challenges!
