Who We Are


StacyLPC-S, Director


Stacy founded Griffin Therapy Center in 2012 looking to ignite a change within the Denton County community. The past several years have been highlighted by a passion to provide affordable, quality care to the community. This vision has led a solid team growing together to form our current clinical and clerical group at GTC. As a result, Stacy recently took the leap to fully transition to a Director's role for our office. Her focus continues to be growing a team of whole-hearted clinicians who provide the quality services you have come to expect at Griffin Therapy Center.

Stacy has expanded and is taking on more Hardship Waiver - Immigration Evaluations than ever. She will travel anywhere in Texas to you to ensure you get the evaluation representation needed for your case. Her reports are thorough, reliable and turnaround is speedy. We invite you or your lawyer to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Stacy is always seeking new adventures and thrill, which is why in her spare time she is either traveling to remote locations across the globe or renovating a 1971 Airstream with a dream to scoot around the country full-time. Both travel and the Airstream are perfect reminders that anything worth having is not always easy.
