Emily Lacy

Sex and Relationship Therapist

Emily Lacy, a licensed professional clinical counselor and sex therapist, has made significant contributions to the field of sex and relationship therapy and education. Born in a small rural town in West Virginia, Emily grew up with an extremely conservative and fear-based education around sex and relationships which sparked her passion for helping others create an empowered and pleasurable sex life. Her early experiences of deconstructing shame-filled and fear-based messages shaped her academic and professional pursuits.
 
Emily's professional career began as an intern for a small private practice in northern Kentucky while completing her graduate degree at Liberty University. Her experiences working in a conservative environment while attending a faith-based university further fueled her interest in deconstructing harmful and inaccurate messages around sex and pleasure. Following graduation from her Master's program, Emily immediately enrolled as a doctoral student to embrace her love of research and growing the field of sex therapy. Her current research projects involve exploring the experiences of vulva owners who have sought treatment for genito-pelvic pain and the barriers that present along the way.
 
Emily is an active member of several professional organizations, including the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, and American Counseling Association. Outside of her academic and professional endeavors, Emily is passionate about volunteering and advocating for nonprofit organizations. In her leisure time, she enjoys traveling with her partner and two children, hiking, gardening, writing, and reading fantasy romance novels.
