Lacy is an international best-selling author, women's recovery coach, and proud Mom of four amazing sons. She first entered 12-Step recovery in late 1999, seeking relief from anorexia nervosa. It has been over 12 years since her last anorexic episode.
In High School (1991-1995) Lacy spent a great deal of time watching anime, crossing into the world of Hentai (pornographic anime, usually involving an older male "senpai" and young woman). After years of obsession with being thin, objectified and flirty, Lacy realized the damage these behaviors were causing in most areas of her life. She sought out support and began to de-construct the damaging messages of Hentai, "bubble gum" anime, and teen partying. The journey was not easy.
Now, 20 years later, Lacy shares what she has learned about breaking the cycles of self-exploitation, socially acceptable self-harm, and fantasy-based emotional affairs. She has led dozens of other women out of the secrecy of pornography (a "man's problem") and fantasy-driven emotional affairs.
Lacy is currently working on her second book, "Beyond the 12-Steps"(TM) building an online community for women in recovery, and re-launching her podcast series, REAL Love Recovery.
