About Liz Lacy
I provide individual and couples psychotherapy in a supportive, client-centered, safe yet challenging environment.
My expertise is in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, such as chronic worrying, obsessions/ compulsions, trauma, panic, agoraphobia, social anxiety; addictions (sex, drugs/alcohol, spending) and personality disorders (Narcissism, Borderline). These may affect your relationships, job, school or your sense of being in the world. I also treat couples. I work primarily with adults and adolescents.
Emotional pain can be brought about because of many reasons. Sometimes something has happened in your life recently...too much stress, a new life transition, a loss, a new relationship, prolonged illness and the like. It can also be brought about by unresolved events from the past. Lastly, emotional pain can be brought about by biological reasons...sometimes it's a combination of causes. My assessment sees you as a whole person and we will look at all possiblilities so as to develop the most effective plan possible for you to achieve your life goals.
I practice Schema Therapy which is very effective for longer-standing and reoccurring life patterns and I use short-term CBT-based interventions (Exposure, Cognitive Restructuring, Mindfulness, Integrative Behavioral Couples and others) with a Humanistic approach. I have worked for more than 16 years with addictions, particularly sex/love. I have done my post-masters training at the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy (specializing in CBT), NY/NJ Institute for Schema Therapy, Beck Institute, and New York City Center for Emotion Focused (EFT) Couples Therapy. I continually attend specialized training in current evidence-based practices.
I have also served on Executive and Administrative Government and Private Boards, as an Executive Clinical Director for HVCS and as clinical consultant for several executive coaches over the last 16 years.
