Stephanie LaCount, MFT
Stephanie West LaCount LMFT has been a licensed psychotherapist for nearly 30 years. She works with individuals who are going through challenges in their lives. She primarily uses a combination of psycho-education, cognitive behavioral, and psychodynamic approaches; including stress management and mindfulness meditation. She believes we can do much to heal ourselves when we learn to access the tools we already have within us.
As a clinical educator, Stephanie developed and presented several continuing education seminars around the country in the area of clinical practice and behavioral health.
Stephanie also teaches intercultural awareness to Americans moving abroad on foreign assignment, and to foreign nationals living/working in the U.S. She is a consultant to clinicians who work with immigrants and international clients. This work developed out of Stephanie’s own profound experience with culture shock while living abroad, and a deep commitment to promoting understanding between cultures of the world.
In addition to her degrees from U.C. Berkeley (Psychology B.A.) and California State University East Bay (Counseling M.S.); she holds a Community College teaching credential; and is on faculty at JFK University in Psychology Continuing Education.
