About Lisa Lackey

I have worked in the field of addiction and trauma since 1994. My husband, Steve, and I co-founded Insideout Living, Inc. in 1999 and incorporated in 2008. We envisioned a clinical practice that would help people make sense of parts of their lives that were confusing, overwhelming, and painful. We believe that trauma healing comes from finally completing an emotional experience that may have only been completed as a physical experience long ago.

Through compassion, cutting-edge treatment modalities, and a great team, we believed and continue to believe that life can change. We knew if we could help people understand their own backstory and how it currently informs the present, they inadvertently trapped parts of their life experience, they could begin to see their patterns, why they were formed and taught new patterns, they could begin to make small shifts, that would lead to bigger changes. This process gives access to pain and trauma that are stuck and supportive others, where the feelings can be released. “Limbic re-visioning” is about rewiring the neural structure of a person who has suffered trauma or emotional neglect. For this to occur, an external example must be present for the limbic brain to mimic. Deep, respectful, contemplative, and heart based listening based on acceptance creates an optimal model for the traumatized limbic system to mimic as it is restructuring.

A passion drives me to support persons as they journey toward resolution from the inside out. My clinical expertise is in the treatment of sexual addiction, trauma, other addictions. Other areas of expertise include codependency, depression, and anxiety. While my passion is working with couples, I also work with individuals and groups. I have two Master’s Degrees, one in Education from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary at Northwestern University and the other in Counseling from National-Louis University; I’ve worked as a pastor, leadership development consultant, and public speaker in a variety of venues. I love learning and teaching what I learn. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) Certified Multiple Addictions Therapist (CMAT), I have some training in Somatic Transformation, and I am a Level II EMDR therapist. My passion for what I do makes me a dynamic and compassionate therapist and an engaging speaker who connects as easily with an individual as I do with a large audience.

About the Workshop

As the world begins to open up again, America is “getting back to normal.” But after a year of multiple pandemics (aka “the triple threat”) that heavily and disproportionately impacted BIPOC communities both in rates of COVID transmission and in the socioeconomic fallout, Black women are already shouldering incredible levels of stress and trauma. And the “normal” that America is getting back to is a normal that we live in fear of - Black children being gunned down by police, cops “accidentally” discharging their firearm and murdering a young unarmed Black man. It is disorienting and scary to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, back into the world where we are burdened by the disease of racism and state-sponsored terror daily. Black women carry this world of fear on our shoulders in a way that nobody else does.

How can we survive or try to thrive in a world where we carry this level of
chronic stress?

From the educator's personal and professional experience as a Black woman, wellbeing consultant, entrepreneur, speaker, and trauma therapist: there has never been a more critical time for us to examine what stress is, how it presents in our lives and culture, its problematic physical and psychological impacts, how we can cope with crisis-level stress, and how we can prepare ourselves and take care of ourselves so that we can recognize and address the symptoms of stress overload and burnout to prevent premature death. Not only does this course offer a basic healing guide for you to follow as we return to America’s dangerous “normal” - a “normal” composed of toxic hustle culture, racism, and violence, but as a lifestyle. This course will give you the tools you need to carve out your space, protect yourself from burnout from the inside out, and thrive emotionally, physically, and spiritually.


Learning Objectives:

  • List two different kinds of stress.
  • Describe two specific physical, emotional and spiritual impacts of stress.
  • Identify at least two compassionate ways to decrease the current triggers impacted by past unprocessed chronic stress and burnout.
  • Create a plan for self-advocacy to decrease your chronic stress resulting from racism or a plan to advocate for the health of Black women as an ally.
