She believes that the path to having productive and healthy relationships with others is to first have a productive and healthy relationship with yourself. Because of this, she uses an integrative approach to counseling, tailoring treatment to the individual based on their specific needs and goals. Lacy challenges cognitive distortions and negative thinking patterns that we can all get caught up in from time to time. She uses metaphors and psychoeducation with clients to help them better understand themselves, and approaches client issues using the Cognitive Behavioral model of counseling. This model focuses on how thinking affects behavior and how behavior affects daily life and relationships.

Above all else, Lacy is passionate about people and believes the key finding joy is the combination of hope and action.
