Lacey is a graduate of the University of Montana where she holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work; and received her Master of Social Work Degree from Walla Walla University. Lacey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Montana and has experience in working with youth, adults, and families: specializing in areas of depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief and loss. Lacey’s aim as a Clinician is to utilize integrative counseling approaches that encompass someone as a whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
Her focus is to see someone journey from feeling like they are just surviving in life–to a place where they feel like they are flourishing. Lacey views each individual and their experiences as unique; and aims to identify and enhance their strengths rather than dwelling on the challenges. Her training includes interventions based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, as well as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. Lacey knows that therapy is best tailored to the individual; and efforts to equip each person she works with to develop the confidence, tools, and skills that can aid them in feeling empowered with a renewed sense of hope.
Lacey has lived in multiple communities of Montana for the past thirteen years and is eager to put down roots and call Bozeman her home. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, lake days, kayaking, reading, and spending time with her family. Lacey is excited to join Providence Mental Health and be a partner that supports generational change within a family.
