Congratulations on taking the first step toward a life change! It's not easy to ask for help and I applaud your decision to do something different in your life. I look forward to taking this journey with you.

I earned my Master's and Bachelor's Degrees in Counseling Psychology from Towson University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and a Licensed Addictions Counselor. My experience and training have been in addictions counseling, community mental health with adults and teens, and in school counseling with children and teens. I started my career working in the school system as an addictions prevention counselor. I have worked in outpatient, intensive outpatient, and residential/inpatient levels of care throughout my career.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. I also help many people who have experienced addictions.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is often called eclectic; I combine cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, gestalt and systems theory to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Absolutely phenomenal therapist. She knows how to ground me and bring my thoughts and fears back to reality without ever making me feel like I shouldn’t feel the way I do or worry about the things I do.

Great so far!!!

Stacy is absolutely wonderful at her job. She’s just the person I need when I get stressed or anxious about literally anything parenting related!! It’s so amazing to have someone who has been there and done it herself and also who has such a great perspective on the need to remember that each child is an individual and they just may need something different than what worked for other kids.

Stacy has been exactly what I need! Perfect match for me.

A.M.·Jul 10, 2021


Stacy is very kind and reassuring. A lot of times I dont want to be kind to myself but I appreciate that she doesnt allow me to do that but is not snarky or rude, just gives me suggestions or even lets me figure some of the things out on my own. She's awesome!

D.A.·Jun 22, 2021


Stacy has been wonderful to talk to and has a great way of asking questions to show a different perspective. Would definitely recommend.

K.E.·Dec 07, 2020


Really helpful during these crazy times. Helps me by giving me constructive advice to navigate personal and professional situations without judgment. Supportive and kind. 10/10

Stacy is incredibly insightful. She listens intently, challenges me to digest the issues in my life and I have become a more aware and confident person since beginning sessions with her. Highly recommend!!

I'm so glad Better Help matched me with Stacy Fruhling as my counselor. She's easy to talk to, she asks great questions, and she pushes me to develop new insights about my feelings and actions. She gives me "homework" at the end of every live chat, and I am finding these assignments extremely productive. MY work with her has been more goal-oriented than simply about expressing my feelings, and that's exactly what I needed right now.

L.I.·Aug 06, 2020


She is best at what she does.

I couldn’t be more satisfied with the responsiveness and quality of consultation that I’ve received from Stacy Fruhling. The app is great. It allows so many ways to share information and Stacy is very quick at responding back. It’s powerful to know you’re not alone in dealing with tough issues. Stacy has encouraged me to journal which I have just started doing. I have already recommended the service to several people. I might even add a second account for marriage counseling.

M.O.·May 24, 2020


Stacy is one of the best people I have spoken to. I have a different therapist on here who wasn’t so great but changing to Stacy was the best choice I have ever mad. She’s amazing and makes it so personal to you

A.M.·May 05, 2020


I've been with Stacy for over a year, and she's amazing! I had gone through a couple therapists before her and learned what I needed and didn't need. I told Stacy, "ok, here's what I need from a counselor" and ever since then, she has been just that for me. Stacy is constructive, compassionate, professional, and calls me out when I need it - but also lets me feel everything I need to get through it. It can be really tough to find medical professionals that match your needs, but Stacy fits like a glove! Much love to all mental health professionals out there for keeping us above water, and to BetterHelp for making counseling affordable and simple!

K.A.·Apr 30, 2020


I've only been talking to her for a little over a week now, but I already feel such a great deal of relief. It's like I have this tangled ball of yarn in my head that she's helping me untwist and rewind neatly, if that makes sense. She's wonderful and I feel that it's a great match.

A.U.·Apr 14, 2020


She responds in great time, gives great advice and is very kind.

B.R.·Feb 21, 2020


Stacy is great! She helped me through a lot of issues that I was going through with anxiety/depression. In addition to helping me with personal issues, she really helped me to work on my own professional development. After working with Stacy, I'm in a much better place mentally, personally, and professionally. She is a great listener and offers a lot of helpful feedback/tips to help you work through your issues.

S.E.·Dec 06, 2019


Stacy is really a great counselor. She helped me a lot.

D.E.·Jul 24, 2019


Stacy is the best therapist ever. I am very lucky and grateful she is on this platform.

R.O.·Jun 29, 2019


No words can describe how good she is. You’ll need to experience it for yourself.

G.R.·Jun 06, 2019


Stacy has been empathetic, compassionate, and understanding of my situation. She has helped me come to terms with aspects of my situation I wasn’t aware of. I would strongly recommend her to those needing someone to talk to.

G.A.·Apr 19, 2019


Stacy is the best therapist I've ever had. It can be tough looking for a therapist that understands everything that is going on inside your head. Stacy has shown not only compassion but skillfulness in handling just about anything I throw at her. I can say with absolute certainty I would not be as stable as I am now without her expertise and commitment.

S.A.·Mar 22, 2019


Stacy has gone above and beyond to help.

L.E.·Feb 02, 2019


Stacy is great to work with and provides excellent feedback and follow up. Stacy is also friendly and works on areas with me that I had requested. Overall have thoroughly enjoyed working with Stacy.

M.E.·Jan 14, 2019


Stacy is attentive and allows you to express your feelings and thoughts without judgement. She is very insightful and guides you through suggestion, it is very easy to apply her advice. I would recommend Stacy Fruhling for any one who is working through a tough time or needs direction or support during life's changing circumstances.

M.A.·Jan 11, 2019


I was skeptical about online counseling, but now I think I find it more beneficial to be able to message my therapist at what ever time of what ever day. I find it more helpful to be able to reach out and type what is on my mind at any given time.

M.E.·Dec 27, 2018


Stacy is a great therapist. She listens to your every need, and when there is something going on she can tell right away. If you are willing to work through things, Stacy is willing to listen and provide knowledge on your situation without being intimidating.

J.A.·Dec 19, 2018


Stacy is kind and focused on the individuality of myself! She listens well and learns what works best for me personally before throwing coping skills that have work on others. We're only a couple of weeks in together, but I'm enjoying our sessions so far!

K.A.·Dec 12, 2018


She completely understands the situation and give her best advice to help. She is concerned enough and very helpful. I love the way she take things and read every detail. I completely agree with her and love her counseling.
