Masters Level Student Intern from Friends University's Marriage & Family Therapy Program

Support Group


Hello, welcome to Willow Emotional and Relational Health! I am Lacey, and like many others I have had the privilege of being in many roles throughout my life. Some of these roles include foster mom to hundreds, homeschool mom to two, daughter, sister, friend, wife, Christian, and the most recent, Student Therapist here at Willow Emotional and Relational Health, LLC. As a student intern in the Master of Science in Family Therapy program at Friends University in Kansas City, I am working under the supervision of a licensed clinical faculty member who is a licensed marriage and family therapist and an AAMFT-approved supervisor. The lesson learned from each of these roles is that life is HARD! We all have our struggles and how we define those will be unique to each of us. I love helping people process the more trying times in their lives and regain power and control over them. 

I started down this therapeutic path many years ago serving our youth in foster care. I spent time with my kiddos and their families intensely listening and meeting them where they were. Helping them identify the sources of fear, pain, and concern, then assisting them find a way to tackle their challenges and prioritize next steps on their journey. The successes my families had inspired me to start down the path I’m on today.

One of the most important things about me is that I am passionate about people. I love to work with people that think and operate differently from me, as I learn from each of them. Helping individuals and family units, overcome experiences of heartbreak and despair, work toward self-discovery, & obtain new coping skills, is my calling. 

I am available for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help. Life is tough, but support is available. Having a professional therapist available to listen, process, and guide you through your specific struggles can be life changing. I look forward to speaking with you. 

Therapy Sessions with Lacey are a flat, out of pocket rate of $20.
