Stacy Birney, MA, NCC

Stacy completed her M.A. degree in Mental Health Counseling with honors from Trinity International University. Stacy received her B.A. in Psychology from North Park University, and has a background in working with diverse populations in community social-service settings. She has obtained the National Counselor Certification (NCC) by the National Board of Certified Counselors, and maintains membership in both the American Counseling Association and the Illinois Mental Health Counseling Association. By employing a client-centered, integrative framework utilizing evidence-based practices for care, Stacy is able to help individuals and couples navigate family of origin issues, trauma, mood disorders, loss, grief, relational distress, life transitions, and stress management challenges. Using an interpersonal and trauma-informed approach, Stacy believes the key to quality therapeutic work is found within the safety and depth of relationship established between client and therapist. She emphasizes the power of humor and curiosity to loosen feelings of stuck patterns and uncover hope.

While out of the office, Stacy and her husband find themselves busy raising their brood of three rambunctious boys. For a recharge, you may find Stacy lost in a novel, near the water, or tinkering with plants indoors and out.

Each individual and couple has a sacred story to tell, and I would love the honor to hear yours as we unpack and rebuild in this journey together. Therapy doesn’t need to be a last resort for finding health. Instead, it can be a collaborative space for anyone feeling stuck—perhaps caught in destructive cycles, frustrated with relationships, battling loneliness, or wondering how to find your voice again. Though therapy isn’t a quick fix, it IS a place to engage in deep, rich, and holistic healing if you’re ready to put in the work. Life is hard enough as it is—let’s journey the path together.
