Stacey Hellman is a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Ellicott City, Maryland. She works with adults ages 18+ from all walks of life including those in the LGBTQIA+ community. Many of Stacey Hellman's clients seek therapy when struggling with a variety of challenges such as unresolved trauma, addictions, self-harm behaviors, sexual orientation and gender identity struggles, life transitions, relationship conflicts, anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. Stacey Hellman is particularly passionate about serving anyone who is truly motivated and willing to make changes in their lives. She believes strongly in the power of the human spirit to go through challenges and to transform painful experiences into growth experiences.
Stacey Hellman uses an integrative approach which means looking all aspects of a person rather than just focusing on what seems "broken." It also means addressing important components such as exercise, sleep, and nutrition which significantly impact mood and overall wellness. In session, Stacey Hellman's primary approach is Internal Family Systems (also referred to as "parts work") which allows clients to access their own inner wisdom and compassion and provides a framework in which to understand their behaviors in a completely different way. Parts Work can be applied to virtually any challenge the client is facing. Stacey Hellman also focuses on where the client is still holding unprocessed emotions from past experiences and provides a safe space for emotional release. EMDR is very effective in helping achieve this goal.
Stacey Hellman is dedicated to providing a relationship that is non-judgmental, fully accepting of differences, and respectful of the client's boundaries. She practices trauma-informed care and has post-graduate specialized trauma training (acute and complex trauma).
In her personal life Stacey Hellman is a mother, yoga instructor, a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation.
