Stacie Dowler Silvas

Stacie Dowler Silvas, M.A., LPC

Stacie approaches counseling with the conviction that each person was created to thrive in life and relationships. Everyone encounters problems, pain, loss and many other challenges, but these do not need to determine one’s identity or future. Stacie’s therapeutic approach addresses the client’s mind, emotions, spirit, and body, creating a holistic approach to healing and growth. Her calm and quiet demeanor creates a safe atmosphere for clients to share openly and work towards their goals.

Stacie earned her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Wheaton College in 2005. Her areas of focus include recovery from abuse and trauma, anxiety related issues, developing healthy relationships and personal/spiritual growth. During the last nine years of practice, she has provided counseling for survivors of childhood abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence and rape as well as counseling for ex-offenders and their families. She has experience working with teens, couples, families, and individuals. Stacie has been a licensed minister since 2003, which provides her with insight in working with seminary students, pastors, and missionaries as they tackle the challenges unique to Christian ministry.

Cherie Thompson, LPC-S, LMSW, LCDC

Cherie is committed to helping minors and their families resolve complex family issues, issues which can lead children to run away from home, get suspended from school, use drugs or begin participating in “high risk” behaviors. She has a unique, compassionate, yet common sense approach to counseling, which makes her the ideal therapist to address adolescent behaviors that can lead to a disconnection from the family and make them likely candidates for physical and sexual exploitation by adult predators.

Cherie received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology​​ from Baylor University and a Master of Science in Counseling and Guidance​​ from Texas A&M University-Commerce. Her training as a supervising Licensed Professional Counselor has prepared her for addressing current legal and ethical issues that arise while working with youth who have been involved in high risk behaviors such as sex trafficking.
