“I am most grateful that Stacy came into my daughter’s life! Stacy gave her the essential life skills and strategies to manage the situation we were living in, and would need to continue to live with. Stacy generously displayed compassion and empathy for our families struggles amidst her professional responsibilities. Her talent was evident in the various techniques she used to address my daughters specific needs. Stacy gently leads with both her heart and mind. I highly recommend Stacy for any counseling needs for children, teens, and families!” – A thankful Mom
“Mentoring at risk teens, I frequently find myself looking in the faces of parents and kids who need more than what my organization offers. They need professional counseling from a trustworthy, engaging clinician who doesn’t sit behind the pretense of a desk or condescendingly above a reclined chair. Stacy uses humor as well as her wonderful knowledge of kids to meet them where they are. Because of her excellence, she is on a very short list of practices I refer my families to.” – Zach Kreeger, Young Life Area Director
“Stacy has been seeing my kids since the loss of their mother a few years ago. Her connection with my kids has allowed them to open up and express many harbored emotions. Stacy’s experience with her own loss has given her the understanding of how others feel when faced with a similar situation, and this has given my kids tremendous benefit. My kids also love the pleasurable and engaging environment in her office. I highly recommend her to anyone in similar circumstances.” – A father of 3
“As a hospice chaplain, I encounter many families who are dealing with various kinds of grief and loss, and often children and youth not only are grappling with the decline or loss of the loved one, but also other issues and/or family dynamics which invariably get stirred up when families go through such an intense experience. When I have referred families to Stacy I have always received very positive feedback! She is someone I can refer to with total confidence.” – Aram Haroutunian, Hospice Chaplain
“My three year old daughter was struggling with PTSD symptoms after a mudslide hit our home in September. She lost her confidence and joy in doing the things that she loved. After four sessions with Stacy, she found the confidence to verbalize her fears, and has made a quick and full recovery. We are so thankful to Stacy! Stacy has a playfulness that makes children feel at ease and the skill set to deliver effective treatment results. “ – Grateful Mom
“Stacy really connects with children, she unlike any other counselor, because her approach is so relatable and creative for children. Both of my children were traumatized in a horrible situation, it effected my eldest daughter the worst. My oldest daughter was scared of noises and was in fear everywhere we went, however, when I brought her to meet Stacy, she seemed to be at ease. Stacy really gave her the comfort of talking to someone she could trust and kept it fun to distract her and helped her work through her issues. It was amazing to see that final point where she broke through and Stacy guided her the whole way. I’m happy to say that now my daughter is a very healthy, happy kid and no longer afraid of everything. I would recommend Stacy to anyone who has children having issues, whether they are having trauma or just need someone to talk to. Stacy will be able to help them.” – A very happy mom of an 11 and 8 year old.
“Stacy combines clinical expertise with emotional availability. Her playfulness and insight, coupled with professionalism and compassion, make Stacy approachable and safe in the therapy relationship. She is able to join with children and relate to parents in a way that creates an optimal environment for healing.” – Karen Anderson Fagan, LPC
“For my two daughters, sessions with Stacy became a highlight of their week. Her passion and commitment are obvious and I knew that my daughter’s souls were in good hands. Having a 12 and 14 year old adjust so confidently to the divorce of their parents is the essence of Stacy’s therapy and an eternal testimony of her professionalism and effectiveness as a therapist. I unequivocally recommend Stacy. My life, and most importantly my daughter’s lives, have been enriched as a result of her work. I remain available to anyone who would care to speak to me directly about her services. God has blessed us with a very special soul in Stacy Schaffer.” – Father of two.
“My family has had the pleasure of Stacy’s professionalism and expertise in working with our son. She formed a bond with him that will last a lifetime and helped him acquire the skills necessary in not only dealing with trauma, but everyday life. She has really gone the extra mile in being his voice and providing a place that he calls “safe”. Stacy has helped him heal and I cannot express my gratitude enough. Anyone that comes across Stacy is blessed to have her in their life and the life of their child.”
