Stacy Jagger's mission is to help build stronger connections within today's modern family. A child and family therapist in private practice, Stacy created Music with Mommie as a new mother in 2007 and has been connecting mommies and babies ever since.
Born and raised in Music City Nashville, Stacy's background lies in the teaching arts, having earned her undergraduate degree from Belmont University School of Music and technical certificate in dance studio management. She spent several years teaching music and dance prior to entering the world of motherhood. Stacy created Music with Mommie in her local community to help remedy the disconnection she felt personally in this new exciting and challenging season of life. The first class in her own community (in 2006) just outside of Nashville grew from 8 to 30 moms in only three months. Some of those moms are her closest companions to this day.
After realizing the relational significance of what she had created, Stacy went on to study mom-child attachment in graduate school where she received her Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University. While studying there, Stacy wrote a research proposal on the effects of an early intervention mom-child bonding program on reducing maternal depression and increasing secure attachment behaviors in young children. She then had the privilege of studying expressive arts and play therapy under renowned child therapist Paris Goodyear-Brown, LCSW, RPT-S as a specialty. Stacy now works with women, children and families in her private play therapy practice, and writes on restoring healthy family interaction and the mom-child connection. After nine years of positive feedback from parents, children and colleagues, Stacy will soon be offering her facilitator training and curriculum to other mothers and professionals who have a big heart for the early years through Attachment Parenting International.
When at home, Stacy lives her life as a working mom and homeschooling family on a 10 acre "hobby farm", with her very hands-on and supportive husband of 17 years, and their four children, Rebekah, Luke, Della Rose and Dean Henry. She enjoys growing flowers in her fields, ballroom dancing and her family's many adventures in their 1978 vintage camper they call "Camp Bessie".
