"Stacy is so well read, she is always sharing wisdom I would not get otherwise. It is like having someone filtering much of the good information that is out there and selecting the thought, book, [or] idea that is just right for me. … She has helped me to sift through the clutter of my life and my thoughts and root me in what is important. The end result is a peace and calm that I really need to keep navigating life." -- C.A.
FROM WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS
"I attend many lectures and workshops around the city that address different concerns and interests. I do not know when I have attended a lecture as meaningful and useful to me personally and professionally as this one. Stacy's presentation was informative, interactive, and explorative. Her wise and approachable presence was a pleasure to experience."
"(Stacy's) talk really resonated with me, as she was able to pinpoint the causes – and suggest solutions. Stacy has unique insights that she supports with strong academic research. Stacy was able to sum up in one hour what I’ve learned in 20 years of therapy. What a bargain."
