Stacy Outten, MA, MFT (MFC #46773)

About Me & My Practice
My therapeutic approach combines extensive clinical training with authenticity, creativity and excitement about the process of change. I firmly believe that we are all a work in progress, with each of us possessing the ability to grow through challenges and more fully into ourselves.

I bring to my work 13 years of experience working in schools, in home treatment with children 0-5, residential adolescent treatment & drug and alcohol treatment centers since 1995. This has allowed me the opportunity to work with people across the lifespan from birth to adulthood.

I hold a M.A. in Holistic Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy 
University, and have completed the two-year Comprehensive Training in the Hakomi Method for Body-Centered Psychotherapy.

My Work with Adults
I provide compassionate and focused counseling to individuals and couples dealing with, but not limited to: grief, trauma, adoption/foster care, relational problems, divorce, adult children of a parent with a mental illness, ACA, individuals and families in recovery from substance abuse and individuals and families struggling with medical illness.

I welcome to my practice people and families of all sexual identities gender identities and family constellations.

My work with adults is informed by developmental, family systems, somatic, narrative and attachment theories to facilitate the therapeutic process. Each of these modalities provides a way to study mind/body patterns and core beliefs through talk, mindfulness and creativity.

My Work with Children
I have a specialization in holistic and body oriented counseling which has included a focus on treating children and families while applying over 20 years of experience working with children 0-18 years of age.

I have found that therapy can be an extremely effective opportunity to help children and their families heal and strengthen when faced with life’s obstacles.

Some issues/obstacles that we can address in our work together include- parenting a special needs child, ADHD, separation or divorce of parents, school problems, physical or emotional trauma, foster care/ adoption, bereavement and behavioral concerns.

I use play therapy, expressive arts and skill building to support children to communicate in the language they know best- play. When given a free and protected space, children are often eager to engage in the therapeutic process.
