Journey Home West, a transitional living program for young women ages 16-21, is excited to welcome Lacey King as Primary Therapist.
Prior to starting at Journey Home West, Lacey worked at Solstice West RTC for seven years as a mentor, team lead, and then as a team director. During this time, she experienced what it takes as a staff and manager to create a positive culture where health and healing can flourish for students and their families. Some of Lacey’s favorite memories range from attending camping trips, being a dance coach for a summer at Solstice, and helping lead the Women & Sobriety group on campus.
Being a part of the journey for others is what inspired her to work with the therapists at Solstice West, through her graduate education and then out in the community as a member of the Crisis Team for the Davis County School District for the past two years. Lacey’s experience of the stresses in high school aged kids allowed her to advance her knowledge on what parents face in trying to maintain supportive positive mental health around a growing and some time out-of-control environment that can be seen in public education and in adolescent social trends. From being a member of the Solstice family from the beginning, gaining insight and experience as to what teens face in high school, to now being able to work with the Journey Home West clients, she is able to help support their growing desire to be out in the world and gaining independence.
Lacey received her Master’s degree from the University of Phoenix. She specializes in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse issues, low self-esteem, and grief and loss. She believes in empowering girls to develop a positive sense of self-worth and identity. Lacey is married and has a two-year-old son. She loves connecting with friends and family and she loves camping, boating, rock climbing, and hiking.
