Stacie Garcia, LPC Associate, NCC
Supervised by Dr. Rebecca Downing, LPC-S and Josh Hawkins, RPT-S, CCPT-S
MEd, MS, LPC Associate
One of our greatest assets at TrueNorth Therapy PLLC is that in addition to years of formal mental health training, certifications, and work with children and adolescents within an inpatient mental health setting, our founder, Stacie Garcia, spent 22 years working in the field of public school special education. During that time, Stacie served as a classroom teacher, a homebound teacher, implemented counseling programs, and served as a diagnostician helping to develop effective school-based/home-based behavior interventions. This knowledge and experience serves to fill the gap that parents often face when encountering a teacher with limited mental health experience, or a therapist with limited knowledge on the modifications that need to be made to effectively facilitate a therapy program for clients experiencing developmental diversities.
