About The Teacher
Stacy is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in private practice in Santa Barbara, CA. She is also a Certified Divorce Mediator and Collaborative Divorce Practitioner working as a divorce coach, parent educator, co-parenting specialist and peacemaker, and serving on the board of the Santa Barbara Collaborative Practice Group. She has been assisting families in transition to improve their communication, maintain healthy boundaries and reduce conflict for the past fifteen years.
Born and raised in Southern California, Stacy began her career in 1997 with UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute, providing vocational coaching to clients as part of a clinical research study. She spent the next several years working as a dedicated public servant for Santa Barbara County, with a passion for social justice issues. Determined to affect real systemic change, she moved her way up by successfully exercising her collaborative coaching and leadership skills, ultimately providing oversight and development of multiple clinical programs across the county. Stacy also spent time in leadership for a local non-profit before opting to pursue private practice full-time and develop TwoCan Retreats.
Married for 25 years, mom, step-mom, and grandma, Stacy is a firm believer in the power of community and genuine connectedness. She believes genuine confidence comes from embracing our innate need to belong to something greater than ourselves, while maintaining a sense of meaning and purpose — and then sharing it with others. No doubt, her family and friends would tell you she works hard and loves with all her heart.Source: twocanretreats.secure.retreat.guru
