Dr. Stacy Hunt, Owner and Clinical Director at Bucks Support Services, is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Sport Psychologist in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from New York University and a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia, as well as from California State University at Dominguez Hills.
Dr. Hunt specializes in working with children, teens and adults with a variety of concerns including eating disorders from a HAES (Health at Every Size) and Body Neutral approach, substance use disorders, ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders, and relationship issues. Dr. Hunt enjoys working with the LGBTQ population and has a particular interest in supporting families’ understanding the benefits of Gender-Affirming Parenting. Her clinical and lived experience in this area allow her to create a safe space for parents to process and learn about the positive mental health benefits and protective factors they can affect in their children’s lives.
Dr. Hunt has presented on and specializes in working with children and young adults diagnosed with PANS/PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections), and specifically the impact of PANS/PANDAS on eating and disordered eating, which can present as ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) in children.
Dr. Hunt is trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, ego psychology, interpersonal therapy and relational therapy. The particular treatment modality, frequency of sessions and length of treatment depend on the difficulties that the individual experiences, the severity of the symptoms, the level of current functioning, as well as the age of the client. Adding mindfulness and meditation to her work with people of all ages has proven very effective in treatment of an array of challenges.
Dr. Hunt is also a certified Sport Psychologist, and works with athletes of all levels, genders and ages. Her experience with mental health issues, particularly with eating disorders and addictions, gives her a specialized awareness when working with athletes and athletes with disordered eating, including RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency). Dr. Hunt is a former ballet dancer at the School of American Ballet and triathlete, and holds a certification in Indoor Cycling instruction, giving her a personal connection to the world of sports and mental health.
In addition to training and supervising other providers on these topics, she has numerous publications and presents nationally. Several of her academic research papers and chapters have been published in peer-reviewed professional journals and textbooks on various topics in psychology. (see her Vitae below)
Hi! In addition to being a psychologist in the office, I really enjoy traveling and speaking with my colleagues and attending community events near and far! I am married to a hard-working guy, who copilots our businesses and family life with me. We have five amazing children, from teen to young adult age, some of whom identify in the LBGTQ community. They are performers, learners, athletes and amazing humans above all. We love to travel together, to our relatives in Greece, or anywhere else we can learn about other cultures and traditions.
