Her mission in practice is to provide the best mental healthcare to all of her clients, with the goal of improving their overall quality of life.

Stacia Crick-Brommel, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience providing evidence-based therapy to adolescents, children, and adults. In my work, I explore ways to find the best therapy for each individual that will help him/her return to an emotional balance enabling more enjoyment in life and improving all interpersonal relationships. I do my best to practice the tenets of empathy and unconditional positive regard while using an eclectic approach that informs my therapy including Humanistic, Family Systems, CBT, DBT, Solutions Focused, schematic therapy, reality, and relational therapy.

Almost everyone experiences stress from time to time and while a small amount of stress can motivate us, too much or prolonged stress can be damaging to both our physical and mental health. I help each person better manage their work/life by finding solutions and gaining a different perspective as well as learning coping skills to decrease distress.

My experience includes many years of treating personality disorders, such as Narcissistic and Borderline. Do you have a relationship with someone at work or in your personal life that seems really confusing or just plain exasperating? Or do you have difficulties emotionally connecting, and trusting your intimate partner without defensiveness or manipulation?

Managing Principal/Consultant

★★★★★
I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Debi Bell both in group and one on one settings for the past three years. I've found her to be an ardent and compassionate listener, one who is genuinely concerned about the growth and development of individuals. Dr. Bell's warm and inviting spirit is easily noticeable and carries throughout the counseling experience. The competencies she espouses allows her to effectively work with constituents across various backgrounds and experiences, including military backgrounds. Most noticeable in my interactions with Dr. Bell is that she is an indefatigable persister in helping clients achieve maximum results in the counseling experience.
