Stacie Shivers, PsyD
I am a clinical psychologist licensed in both New Jersey and New York, and a New Jersey certified school psychologist. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults presenting with a variety of emotional, behavioral, and social challenges. Common issues that I treat include anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger, OCD, interpersonal difficulties, and self-esteem issues. I use an integrative approach to treatment, with interventions drawn from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based skills, movement-based skills, and play therapy. I am also trained in psychodynamic therapy and family systems therapy.
I believe that therapeutic work is most productive when aligned with an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment. I tailor treatment to meet the unique and diverse needs of each person. I am passionate about supporting your efforts toward improving health and wellness, as well as offering guidance on ways to access intrinsic strengths in order to experience personal success.
I earned my Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) from Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. I completed an APA-accredited internship at Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care in Newark, NJ. I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community mental health centers, schools, and in private practice. These experiences have allowed me to learn to diversify my treatment approach to meet the specific needs of each individual. Additionally, my experience as a professional dancer and dance educator affords me the unique opportunity to incorporate my interest in the mind-body connection and movement to my approach to treatment. In addition to my clinical work as a psychologist, I hold a position as adjunct professor at Rutgers University’s Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP). I have also had the opportunity to teach master’s level counseling students at Caldwell University. I am an active member of New Jersey Psychological Association, with historical and present appointments to leadership roles within the organization.
