DIR/Floortime Experience and Training

After her son's diagnosis in 2001, Stacy was fortunate to consult with and learn DIR/Floortime directly from Dr. Stanley Greenspan at his office. Dr. Greenspan was one of the nation's top child psychiatrists and the creator of DIR/Floortime.
She then went on to formally train and become a certified DIR/Floortime provider.  She received her Master’s degree from NYU and has been in private practice since 2007.

Psychotherapy for parents, siblings and caregivers

 As a special needs parent and mental health professional, Stacy understands that family members have their own unique needs. These needs are often overlooked, due to the immense time and focus placed on therapies prescribed for the “diagnosed” child.  In doing this therapeutic work, Stacy strives to address the many concerns which often come with having a special needs child.

 Stacy believes the challenges we face as individuals and families can at times be overwhelming to manage on our own.  Stacy’s goal in working with clients is to provide the empathy and support needed to feel understood and to help empower others to work with their own resilience and build support systems to face these challenges. Therapy should provide a safe and place for the expression of feelings that may not be easily shared with family and friends.

The entire staff of Bergen Pediatric Therapy's goal is to broaden the possibilities of all children and families they serve.
