Dr. Stacy Bonds, PhD
Dr. Bonds accepts Aetna, Cigna, Lyra, Optum, Medicare Advantage, and UHC. She also sees folks as an out-of-network provider.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in delivering evidence-based treatment to individuals throughout all stages of their lives. I have a warm and compassionate approach to therapy, which encourages active collaboration. I have a passion for walking alongside people in the midst of struggle. When you come to therapy, it's like you are trying to climb a mountain. I am not at the top of your mountain but, rather, am on another mountain, offering a different perspective, pointing out potential dangers, and helping you find the most effective path along your journey.
I value working with clients facing all kinds of difficulties, but specialize in working with PTSD, anxiety, depression, body acceptance, relationship difficulties, Veterans, sexuality and gender issues.
I earned my PhD from the University of North Texas (UNT). Following my time at UNT, I completed an APA-accredited internship at VA Portland Healthcare System and an APA-accredited postdoctoral residency at the VA San Diego Healthcare System. My work is grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and I have advanced specializations in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.
