Therapy Practicum: Working towards her Master’s in Marriage & Family Therapy
If you’re ready to shake things up, Staci is the therapist for you. She is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Lipscomb University with a specialization in Conflict Management. But she’s not just any old therapist. Staci has already completed an undergraduate degree in Entrepreneurship and then earned her Master’s Degree in Business Administration (Belmont University). She’s no stranger to problem-solving and has real-world skills to help just about anyone.
Staci loves working on what she calls “change management.” Seeing people feel good about themselves and face the fear of change head-on is what gets her out of bed in the morning. She is interested in working with a variety of clients, including adolescents, adults, couples, and families and has the energy and heart it takes to do so.
In her free time, Staci enjoys traveling, trying new Nashville restaurants, teaching group fitness classes, and conducting personal fitness training sessions. Being the best she can be, and helping others do so, as well, is her thing! But don’t be fooled… Staci isn’t all work and no play. She will pretty much binge-watch anything… and then re-watch it again. Her current obsessions are Billions and Game of Thrones.
Therapy Practicum: Ph.D. Track
Francisco is a guy who will surprise you. While he appears to be “straightlaced” and formal, he is actually most comfortable with epic therapy challenges. Having previously worked in a variety of places, including a prison and other forensic settings, he can handle just about anything...and loves it. He completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Chicago, which was a bit too cold for his liking. Having sworn to himself he was done with the snow and -50 F° days, so he headed south to Nashville and got his Master’s in Psychology from Vanderbilt, and is currently working on his Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Psychology.
Francisco enjoys working with all types of clients and not much surprises him. Additionally, having grown up in Argentina, Francisco is fully bilingual and capable of working with Spanish-speaking clients in their own language.
