 Stacy Gilmore Cecchet

  Degree currently pursuing: Doctorate in Clinical Psychology

  On a recent trip to Haiti, Stacy (Gilmore) Cecchet had originally planned to work with psychologists on the mental health team, however, upon arrival she discovered that children made up more than half of the population seeking medical and mental health attention.  Stacy provided supportive therapy to children undergoing medical procedures without anesthesia as well as running a number of play therapy groups for children in surrounding orphanages and in the medical clinics.  One of Stacy's personal goals was to provide safety, support, and hope to the children of Haiti, even if it only lasted for the time she was there. Read more about Stacy's memorable trip to Haiti.

" I like working with clients because it allows you to clearly see the impact you can have on others' lives.  I think my ideal situation would be splitting my time between inpatient and community mental health settings."

“I am very interested in the emerging idea of maladaptive grief — how and why people get it — and how we as clinical psychologists can treat it.”
