Stephanie Byrd, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist and Clinical Director

My name is Dr. Stephanie Byrd, I’m a licensed Clinical Psychologist and the Owner / Clinical Director of bareWell, a group therapy practice located in San Diego, California. With over 20 years of experience behind me, I still find myself curious to learn more about my clients and the amazing resilience and strength they possess. I am passionate about removing the stigma behind seeking help and committed to reducing the barriers to mental health care. I know firsthand how challenging it can be to start the journey toward healing and growth and I am always honored and grateful to be part of the courageous journey of those whom I serve.

Over the course of my clinical training and career, I have had the privilege to work with a wide variety of clients and in many different settings. I have the training and specialized experience in working with members of the law enforcement community, forensics/corrections, athletes, Special Forces military personnel, service members who are struggling with combat trauma as well as victims of childhood trauma. Additionally, I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy and have done extensive work with couples over the years. 

During my own journey of personal growth, healing, and discovery I learned that exercise and physical health are crucial for my own psychological and emotional well-being.  I played soccer competitively for over 15 years, including collegiate soccer at Florida State University. Go Noles! My experience as a competitive athlete allowed me the opportunity to understand the power of physical health with respect to mental balance, resilience, and overall wellness. My passion is helping those with who I work also achieve a sense of balance and well-being in life.  I truly believe in the value of therapy,  the power of the therapeutic relationship, and the healing we can do together.
