About Stacey Blume Frankel, LMSW:
Stacey is a licensed therapist who specializes in ketamine assisted psychotherapy (preparation, intention setting, and integration sessions).
Stacey has a compassionate and nurturing style using a strengths based, holistic client centered approach to empower individuals with new tools for emotional recovery. She incorporates theories and techniques from CBT, Internal Family Systems, Somatic, Mindfulness/Meditation, and Psychodynamic Therapies including Jungian perspectives.
She believes that life is an evolving journey and thinks of the therapeutic alliance as a partnership to help clients achieve their goals. Clients are guided to uncover and realize meaningful insights from their own narratives in order to heal. Change is hard but working together in a safe, supportive space is an integral part of resolving issues. This is accomplished by exploring difficult experiences in order to transform, recognizing maladaptive coping mechanisms, identifying healthy alternatives and building upon strengths to embody lasting change.
Stacey’s ultimate goal is that the therapeutic process leads clients to personal healing, growth and greater life fulfillment.
