Stacie Sears, MSW, LCSW
I enjoy hiking and biking in the Wasatch Mountain Range, as well as exploring the canyons of Escalante. My musical interests include classic rock, R&B, and electronic music. I have spent most of my adult life wondering whether my favorite composer is Rachmaninoff or Chopin. I also enjoy time with family and friends.
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 feeling fear, loss, self-doubt, feelings of numbness, spiritual concerns, as well as people distressed in relationships. Some of my practice involves helping people dealing with cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The Gottman Method
For most couples, some areas of their relationship work well, while other areas are challenging. Many couples share a hope, not always recognized, to adopt 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.
