Stacey Hellman is a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Ellicott City, Maryland. She works with people ages 16+ 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 childhood abuse and neglect, addictions of all kinds, relationship conflicts, separation and divorce, 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 self-care 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 and other experiential modalities are very effective in helping achieve this goal. Stacey also uses yoga when appropriate especially when dealing with unresolved trauma. No yoga experience is necessary!
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).

Frequency of sessions this provider offers to see clients once you are an established client.
I offer electronic claim submission for clients using out of network benefits so there's no paperwork required or anything to mail in! Payment is due in full at the time of service and I submit the claim after each session. Payments go toward your deductible and once the deductible is met then your reimbursement is sent directly to you from your insurance company after each session. Some clients pay with an HSA/FSA card AND get some reimbursement through their insurance. Take the time to find out what your insurance benefits cover and what your options are! If you have serious financial concerns I would recommend staying in-network with your insurance company and doing a search directly on their website for a behavioral health/mental health provider.
