My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with imposter syndrome, burnout, and low motivation in life? If you've ever thought to yourself, "I'd be just fine if I could get out of my own way" then I am the therapist for you. I specialize in helping high-achieving adults, including entrepreneurs, athletes, first responders, veterans, teachers, business leaders, and others overcome past trauma, anxiety, imposter syndrome, and burnout.
My clients identify their core values, their purpose, and understand the neuroscience of why they do the things they do. I use mindfulness, trauma therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients to overcome anxiety, reach their goals, and truly live their purpose.
If this sounds like something you need, reach out for a free 15-minute phone consultation!
More Info About My Practice
Stacy spent 17 years working with the Olympic and Paralympic movement in the United States and internationally. In her time working with elite-level athletes, she learned what it takes for people to reach the highest level of achievement; and that sometimes what stops people is more than just simple psychology. Always passionate about mental health, Stacy obtained a master's degree in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, and opened True Grit Performance Counseling so that she could support athletes, entrepreneurs, first-responders, military veterans, business leaders, teachers, and other high-functioning adults reach their highest goals.
Stacy is trained in EMDR, complex trauma, ACT, CBT, and other modalities that help people develop resilience and achieve their goals.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Most of my client struggle with feeling like an imposter, as though they wake up every day and cosplay as a person who has it together even though they are struggling. Often this stems from anxiety and sometimes even from difficult events in childhood. I specialize in helping people recover from abuse, overcome anxiety, and live their purpose.
My Role as a Therapist
My role is to teach you about how humans work; neurobiology, development, and psychology; as well as to help you discover your core values and who you really are. My clients are always in the driver's seat, and my role is to help them navigate, avoid pitfalls, and keep them on the road to their destination.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
I've been there, and it's awful. And I know that a bad therapy experience can make you leery of working with someone again. My goal is to have everyone I work with feel seen, heard, and validated. Whether we work together for a few sessions or a few years, my main objective is ensuring that you feel safe, accepted, and heard. Clients are always welcome to give me feedback (in fact, it's encouraged) and I strive to ensure that the therapy process is as positive as it can be.
