I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Putnam County, New York with more than 20 years in the field. I am the mom of two young adult sons with special needs and specialize in working with people and families with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have a deep understanding of how difficult it can be to raise a child with special needs, and with issues related to advocating for a special needs child with a school district or with other government entities. I am very holistic, and enjoy looking at alternatives to medication whenever possible. In addition to my specialty in ASD, I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, substance abuse issues, and family issues. I have worked in Community Mental Health Centers, with incarcerated women, in a hospital detox unit, and in private practice. I enjoy helping couples work through relationship issues.
My counseling style is warm , supportive, positive and compassionate. I will help you to identify your strengths and find solutions to your problems. My approach is Client-Centered and Humanistic and employs Cognitive-Behavioral techniques. I really enjoy what I do!
I am so glad that you are considering seeking therapy through BetterHelp and am so grateful that Teletherapy has become so widely available now, as it makes therapy so much more accessible for everyone. I look forward to meeting you and starting our journey together!

Stacy has been working with my boyfriend and I on some relationship issues. Her personality is caring and compassionate. She is a great listener and has come up with actionable ways to improve our relationship. She has also explained why we have the issues we have and it has helped us to overcome the emotions behind them. We are seeing improvement after just 3 sessions. I would definitely recommend her.
