Lacy Doyle, M.A.
My name is Lacy Doyle, and I am a temporary Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (tLMFT). My goal as a therapist is to help individuals, couples, and families by creating an accepting and non-judgmental environment in therapy. I believe that each person’s experience is unique to them, and that experience is to be respected and validated. Feeling safe to open up about one’s greatest struggles and fears is a courageous journey that I am honored to be a part of. My passion and drive as a therapist is the ability to be a part of that experience and providing you the support you need to heal and change in positive ways through your strengths.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families of all ages and backgrounds. I am especially passionate about working with couples and families who are struggling with conflict, in whatever form that conflict takes. I have experience within areas of trauma, life transitions, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and other mental health struggles. My approach to therapy is an experiential one with integrated evidence-based treatments such as Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS).
I grew up in Monticello and am incredibly excited to be working in my hometown once again. I attended the University of Northern Iowa where earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Family Services. From there, I continued on my path to becoming a therapist at Mount Mercy University, and I have graduated with my Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy.
I believe everyone has a story and experiences that have led them to who they are today, as an individual as well as within the relationships they find themselves in. I look forward to learning more about your experiences that have made you who you are, and finding the strengths to foster growth, healing, and change.
