Stacey M. Hurst, LCPC, GL-CMA
Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist
Stacey M. Hurst is a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). Since 1996, Stacey has worked with adolescents and adults on issues related to mood disorders, disordered eating, trauma, emotional regulation, body image, life transitions, and relationship challenges. Stacey also enjoys supporting couples in their journey towards intimate connection. The couple’s dynamics are explored both verbally and non-verbally to gain greater understanding, compassion and communication within the self and partnership.
Stacey strongly believes that our bodies hold answers, wisdom, and healing abilities, and she works with clients to draw from those powerful mechanisms. Stacey’s clients note that she is a collaborative, engaged therapist who gently guides them through difficult areas of awareness. Stacey works within a safe, accepting environment where she helps clients to move calmly and confidently in their daily lives, discover healthier ways to relate to themselves and others, and synthesize the body, mind and spirit—fully integrating the “self” to support optimal health and well-being.
