126 – It’s Not What I Do, It’s Who I Am Re-Release – Lisa Lackey

As part of our “Archival August,” we are re-releasing episodes from the past that have held specific significance for me recently, as I take some time for personal healing.

Lisa Lackey, is one of the premier therapists in Chicago. And it’s funny, I knew Lisa from afar for a really long time and kind of had put her on a pedestal. Early on, when we were starting to talk, I remember feeling honored that she was interested in connecting with me.

And now she’s somebody who I know that I can go to with absolutely anything and she’s one of the most generous clinicians. I mean, I know a lot of generous clinicians, but for somebody of Lisa’s caliber to be so generous is just truly exceptional.

Lisa identifies as a black woman and she’s been doing a lot of work in the anti-racism realm lately. And we don’t really talk a lot about that in this episode, but the way that she’s combining anti-racism work with empathy and compassion is I think truly what needs to happen in this country overall right now.


Lisa Lackey has worked in the field of addiction and trauma since 1994. She’s driven by the passion to support persons as they journey toward resolution from the inside out. Her clinical expertise is in the treatment of sexual addiction, trauma, and other addictions. She’s worked as a pastor, leadership development consultant, and public speaker in a variety of venues.

She loves learning and teaching what she learns. Her passion for what she does makes her a dynamic and compassionate therapist and an engaging speaker who connects as easily with individuals as she does with large audiences.

Lisa’s podcast is Insideout Conversations.
