ABOUT
ABOUT ME

My name is Stacia Marcellin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am passionate and serious about Women's Mental Health. As a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, I care about the well-being of our families and our community.  As well, I am an advocate for holistic well-being. 

 

I am also a wife to a wonderful husband and mother to three  wonderful human beings and two parakeets. I also enjoy the creative arts, including music and poetry. I also have a lot of other interests. I am confident, we probably have more than one in common. 

EXPERIENCE

You should also know that I am a teacher turned clinician or licensed clinical social worker. The idea to help the parents of my students in a more tangible way, hit me a few years into my teaching career. I wanted to help the families that I worked with, but as a teacher I was limited. I became a Clinical Social Worker in 2005, following my studies at Smith College School for Social Work. Since that time, I have worked in a variety of settings to include: family centers, schools, hospitals, clinics, and in homes. I have worked with students, therapeutic foster care families, veterans and their families, those in recovery,  those in the military, caregivers, and more. For the last eleven years, I have worked primarily in outpatient settings and in schools working with both individuals, groups, and couples. I have received specialized training in Maternal Health at Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins Medical School,  Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress, Life Skills/Life Story, Seeking Safety, and Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Advanced Perinatal Mental Health from Postpartum Support International.

I take a holistic approach to my work with my clients, knowing that we are not one-dimensional human beings. Using a psychodynamic approach, I enjoy incorporating a variety of therapeutic interventions  including the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Music, and Art. I work to help you meet your goals in the context of recovery, reconnection, and resiliency...towards a resilient life.

ABOUT THE PRACTICE-Resilient Living

Working with women has always been my passion, from my days of helping to start a women's student organization on my college campus to my most recent work with female veterans and legally involved individuals.  Resilient Living Counseling and Consulting takes into consideration the  complexity and nuances of our lives as women and the unique experiences we have across the life span, from adolescence to menopause.  Most importantly, this practice takes into account the importance of the therapeutic relationship, the most important relational dynamic that it takes to create a optimium healing  space.  In my practice, I offer you a place and the tools for you to reconnect, recover, and be resilient.
