Savannah Stanciel is an Associate Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice with Pacific Mental Health. She is currently licensed in both Arizona and Washington State. She received her Bachelor in Community Advocacy and Social Policy from Arizona State University and her Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan in 2021. Her passion is supporting adolescents and women-identifying individuals to discover their innate strengths and inner wisdom.
Growing up as a multiracial woman in a tiny town west of Seattle, Savannah’s unique subjective experience guides her clinical work. She pulls from her background working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors in an integrated women’s health shelter and strives to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can feel acceptance in expressing the most authentic parts of yourself fully. Her favorite modalities are Person-Centered, Rogerian, Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Strengths-based, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), pulling from her social work and trauma-informed background. Because of her preference for strengths-based work, she is non-directive and uses her positionality as a therapist to guide instead of direct. Savannah prefers to use a whole person approach to trauma, believing that complex systems such as family/intergenerational beliefs, institutions, and societal influences shape our internal world.
