About Stacey Cherry, LCPC

Stacey Cherry, licensed professional clinical counselor, is the mental health counselor in the Counseling Center at UMaine Machias. A native of Washington County, she completed her undergraduate degree in behavioral science at the University of Maine at Machias in 2000.  She earned a master’s degree in psychosocial rehabilitation from the University of Southern Maine in 2007.  She had hoped to become a university counselor ever since she was a student at UMaine Machias and is pleased to serve in that capacity at her alma mater.

Stacey is passionate about working with the college population.  She views the “college experience” as a period of time when many life changes happen. It is a time for discovery and growth, and also a time when increased stress can cause one to develop a mental health condition.  She views her role as a guide, working collaboratively with students toward mental health wellness goals, and teaching skills to help students cope with whatever comes their way throughout their lifespan.
