Janie Lacy (LMHC,NCC)
Are you worried about your relationship? Did you have an affair? Did you catch your spouse viewing pornography? I want you to know that you are not alone. I have a passion to reach out and help you grow and mature through difficult life situations. I have a relational approach and a unique ability to connect with individuals. Drawing upon my broad range of experience in private practice, not-for-profit organizations, hospitality and the medical industry, I have helped countless people in many arenas of life. I offer keen insight on all aspects of relationships including marriage, parenting, & dating.
I bring a unique approach with my experience as a communicator and a counselor. I have been sought out for my treatment approach to anger management, sexual addictions, and relationship counseling to name a few.
Hi! My name is Janie Lacy and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist who specializes in relationship difficulties, sex addiction, and anger management. My greatest passion is helping others heal from those deep hurts that have caused shame, fear, doubts and behaviors that have been damaging and destructive in their life. I take a very relational approach and I do this through therapeutic treatments addressing the physical, mental, social/emotional, and spiritual aspects of the individual.
To share a little bit about my preparation and education, I have received extensive training through my graduate work at Palm Beach Atlantic University where I obtained my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. Currently, I am working on my doctorate degree with California Southern University. Also, to create a well-rounded education that allows me to relate with many of my clients, I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida, specializing in management. In that Sex Addiction is one of the areas I specialize in, I have further received specialized training in sexual addiction treatment through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals and the International Association of Certified Sexual Addiction Specialists (IACSAS).
My view of counseling is that it is all about the individual. The plan has to be one that they will own, that is specific to them and that lets them know they are understood based on what they have walked through in life. No matter if it is low self-esteem, anger management, sexual addiction, codependency, anxiety, or depression, my desire is to partner with each of my clients, whether it is an individual (children, teens or adults), couples, or family to be their advocate, to hear their story and to build a foundation of healing that gives their journey hope going forward. As a relationship expert, I also have a specialized approach with couples that range from pre-marital, to marital, to those on the verge of divorce that will teach them how to truly hear each other, communicate in a way that both are valued and affirmed and give practical, yet effective, tools to use in everyday life.
One of my passions is public speaking which has opened the door to be a guest speaker for numerous organizations with topics included Hooking Up Mentality, Taming the Inner Hulk, Protecting Your Asset: Invest In Your Marriage, and How To Stay Connected At The Speed of Life to name a few.
I also enjoy leading anger management workshops and relationship intensives that shed new light on why we respond the way we do and helping you develop unique approaches in handling these vital areas going forward.
My experience opens the door to not only work in the counseling realm, but to offer coaching to businesses, effect change in teams that break down walls and build purpose, and to grow leaders that will impact their companies and their families.
My relationship advice has been sought out by the media with numerous appearances on WOFL Fox 35, National Syndicated Daily Buzz Show, WESH Channel 2 NBC Affiliate, WKMG Local 6, Ivanhoe Broadcast News, and Central Florida News 13, I am truly in my element when I am connecting one-one-one with individuals that are looking for a new path in life and to help them believe that healing and hope can come. Let's connect through my COMPLIMENTARY Relationship and Marriage Advice newsletters!
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
For me, it is all about the uniqueness of the individual or couple I am working with and seeing them face the challenges that they believed would hold them back in their life. Personally, I have had to face some of the very hurt, pain and hard work that I am asking my clients to go through and that connection brings effective resolution that would not be possible otherwise. My desire is to use my God-given giftedness with my clients and walk with them on their journey of hope and healing!
