From an early age Stacee knew that she wanted to work with children in some capacity. While studying psychology at the University of South Dakota she obtained a job working as a direct care staff in a psychiatric residential treatment facility for children and fell in love with the world of children's mental health. Over the next 15 years she went on to work in several different treatment facilities for children and adolescents as a direct care staff and eventually as a therapist. This work gave her a wealth of experience treating children and adolescents with histories of abuse and trauma, helping parents learn new skills, and providing family therapy. In 2015 Stacee made the decision to leave residential care and took a job in rural southwestern Minnesota at a community mental health agency. Through this opportunity she provided both traditional outpatient therapy services as well as intensive family based services to children and adolescents in the community. She quickly realized that she preferred being on the proactive side of keeping kids out of care as opposed to the reactive side of treating them once they were there. Stacee joined us here at Journey Therapy and Consulting in March of 2021.
