Meet the Counselor
About Stacey Cherry, LCPC
Stacey Cherry, licensed professional clinical counselor, is the mental health counselor in the Counseling Center at UMM. 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 UMM 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.
