As a teenager in a boarding school, Lexy was connected to therapy that turned her life around. After experiencing the immense benefits that come with the right help, she knew that she wanted to support others in the same way. Later in life, when she discovered that she could be the connecting point between families and treatment options, her life came full circle.
