lacy’s Philosophy and Approach: “Teach Them How to Fish”

In her Own Words

“I believe long term healing, low recidivism rates, decreased substance abuse, and an increase in overall life satisfaction depends on one’s ability to get real with themselves about their lives, about their choices, about their thought patterns, and about their conditioned selves. Once one can take a radical look at the truth of who they have been, they can embark on a path of who they are becoming.”

Lacy’s Coach Approach to Reentry provides an innovative new perspective to facilitating and empowering long term change for men and women transitioning from prison back into society.

The ancient proverb, “Teach a Man to Fish,” can be applied to many aspects of life. However, I find it most pertinent and profound when it comes to helping men and women transition back into their everyday lives after being incarcerated or in the military. We live in a quick-fix, fast-paced society where we perceive there is no time for deeper processing, finding meaning, or long-term healing. We are quick to put a band-aid on the wound, use external methods of coping to get by, or simply accept that we are a victim of circumstance. Unfortunately, this way of walking through the world will inevitably lead to repeated crises and the feeling that we will never truly be healed or whole. By investing in a coach approach to reentry, people and organizations are investing in teaching and empowering returning citizens to heal the past and create their future. Men and women are coached to identify and utilize their own internal resources to not just cope or survive, but to thrive.

I have had the privilege to witness profound transformation over and over again as my clients commit to facing their fears, observe and accept their faults, and embrace their vulnerabilities.

I look forward to walking alongside you on a journey of self-awareness, compassion and desire to serve others while serving your better self.
