Stacy Liegel, LCSW
I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, providing a safe and judgment free space to explore any of the challenges you may be facing. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person centered, and strengths-based therapy. My work is guided by psychosocial theory, systems theory, and attachment theory. While these forms of therapy are my preferences, I am also able to make adjustments in order to establish the most comfortable therapeutic space for you. Together we will determine the best treatment plan in order to meet your specific needs.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New Jersey with over 12 years of social service and more than 4 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I received my bachelor’s and master’s degree from Rutgers University and am currently working on my doctorate in social work at Walden University. I also have a minor in criminal justice and a specialized focus in child development. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, self-harm, suicidal ideations, and severe mental illnesses. I aim to be honest and direct with my clients throughout their time with me and appreciate the feedback given. I have a long history of working with the mentally ill, developmental disabilities, and those in crisis who are often experiencing suicidal ideations. For the last 4+ years I have been working in a psychiatric emergency room, assisting people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, going to the beach, and engaging in my hobbies.
It takes a lot of bravery to seek out help and I congratulate you on making it this far. If you are ready to get to work and feel that I am the appropriate therapist for you I look forward to having the opportunity to accompany you through your journey.
