Lacey Meehan LMFT
Lacey earned her Master of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University in Honolulu HI and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Education, Philosophy, and Psychology from the University of Portland in Portland OR. Lacey is licensed in the state of Washington and was previously licensed in the state of Hawaii. Prior to earning her Master's Degree, Lacey was in the Air Force. While completing her degree, Lacey worked with children and adolescents - and their families - on the autism spectrum. In her internship she had the opportunity to spend a year working with individuals diagnosed with HIV or AIDS. Lacey has worked in various settings since obtaining her degree, including working in schools, on military bases (with adults and with children) both in the U.S. and overseas, and working at a non-profit agency with children and families.
I work with individuals, couples, and families, including adults, adolescents, and children. I provide individual therapy but also strongly encourage the inclusion of family members in the therapy process in order to enhance therapeutic progress and change. I offer therapeutic support to clients of any age. Though my primary experience is in working with children and adolescents, I also enjoy working with adults who are dealing with stage of life changes or struggles related to family dynamics.
I view therapy as a journey that I travel with my clients in the process of improving their lives, moving in the direction that they choose. I practice in a very client-centered manner, meaning that I will assist clients in identifying their own goals and then help them in reaching these goals. My approach to therapy is influenced by Virginia Satir's Transformational Systemic Therapy and draws from a number of theoretical orientations, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing.
In addition to the Vancouver location, Lacey provides integrated services at Evergreen Pediatric Clinic
I enjoy travel, cooking, music, and spending time with my family.
