About Me

Stacie Sears, MSW, LCSW

I enjoy hiking and biking in the Wasatch Mountains. My musical interests include classic rock, R&B, and electronic music. I have spent my adult life wondering whether my favorite classical composer is Rachmaninoff or Chopin. I also enjoy time with family and friends.


“Our relationship lives in the space between us –

it doesn’t live in me or in you or even in the dialogue between the two of us –

it lives in the space we live together and that space is sacred space.” 

– Martin Buber

About My Practice

My practice includes individual and relationship therapy. I draw on both research-based and humanistic approaches. My experience includes working with people distressed in family, partner, and work relationships. Common concerns for coming to therapy include feelings of fear, loss, self-doubt, feelings of numbness, and spiritual concerns.

The Gottman Method

For most couples, some areas of their relationship work well, while other areas are challenging. Many couples share a hope of adopting kinder ways of dealing with each other. I usually start with The Gottman Method—which I then personalize and adapt to your situation, with its own unique mix of hopes and fears. I use booklets developed by The Gottman Institute, which you can then take home, at no additional cost to you.
