GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS:
Stacey reported that her personal goal is open her own psychology practice which will promote resiliency and assist people in their recovery from mental health, substance abuse, behavioral and emotional disorders. The focus or mission of the practice would be to incorporate faith-based practices to preserve the promise of good quality of life for all people, and to help clients identify and work on behaviors, feelings or attitudes which may be destructive, negative or harmful, in an effort to promote positive adjustment in community as well as progress forward in life with purpose and direction.
Stacey is an ambitions, goal oriented, focused and determined young women who has made a significant contribution to our society and our community through her work, as well as her willingness and ability to help other people. I canâ€™t think of a person more deserving of the honor of being inducted on to the Wissahickon Wall of Fame.
