Stacey Alvarez, LMFT (101176)
I believe that every person has a right to live a vibrant, empowered existence, and that staying connected to your values can strengthen you at the core and build vitality. You are vibrant, vital, and unbroken. Even if you don’t see it now, I can.
Everything you do and have done makes sense when viewed through the window of your experiences. I can teach you to accept that and move on toward wholeness and away from suffering and stuck-ness.
I am your ally, a collaborator in building your happiness, no matter what stage of the journey you are on. I will join you in creativity and compassion and help you find the voice you may not know that you have.
My specialties are treating trauma and PTSD, domestic violence and emotional abuse, rape, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicidality, and relationship difficulties. I love working with teens, adults, and couples.
My main approach to therapy is a mindfulness-based approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT. I also am one of the co-facilitators of our DBT program, which is another mindfulness-based approach which works well with ACT.
I have a masters degree in clinical counseling and psychology, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and religious studies.
