Stacey Haynes, PhD
"In my work with children and families experiencing chronic medical conditions, I have been in constant awe of the resiliency and perseverance of the families I have had the privilege to work with. With this in mind, my experiences guide my scientific curiosity about the fact that some children recover and persevere when faced with significant stressors while others struggle and regress. This theme of risk and resiliency remains evident in my research and clinical approach. Conceptually, I adhere to an integrative theoretical orientation that emphasizes evidence-based practices in psychology (EBPP) in conjunction with a humanistic perspective that values the process and exploration of an individuals unique potential in relation to their cultural milieu. A primary objective of my integrative perspective is to not only understand problems and negative reactions to stressors, but also to appreciate adaptation, positive emotion, coping, resiliency, and wellbeing as a developmental process. I believe that it is also important to attend to the relationships and systems to which a child belongs. In addition to my clinical work, I continue to pursue research opportunities, focusing on both pediatric psychology and mental health services for underserved populations. These interests have heretofore involved health disparities, health service utilization, medical mistrust, and the development of culturally-sensitive screening assessment for children with sickle cell disease and other hematological/oncological concerns."
Stacey Haynes has worked extensively with children and their families, focusing both on pediatrics and the culturally-sensitive application of evidence-based practices in psychology. She has accumulated experience in addressing a wide range of pediatric concerns, from neurocognitive assessment to cognitive behavior therapy with exposure and response prevention for anxiety. Stacey has extensive clinical training with many pediatric populations, including oncology, hematology, diabetes, transplant, HIV, bariatrics, the NICU, craniofacial concerns, and primary care. Throughout her various trainings and clinical work she has maintained a serious commitment to meeting the mental health needs of culturally diverse families.
Stacey received her undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri, St. Louis and went on to receive a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Jackson State University, a historically black university (HBCU) and American Psychology Association (APA)-accredited program. She completed an APA-accredited clinical internship at the Baylor College of Medicine through Texas Childrens Hospital and trained as a postdoctoral fellowship in pediatrics at Childrens National Health System and the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She currently serves as a clinical psychologist at Seattle Children's Hospital through the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic.
