Our Wellness Team Leader

Lacey J. Rentschler

Letters after my name:

MSW (Masters in Social Work), LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker)

Education:

Masters in Social Work (2008), Bachelors in Social Work (2005); both from Indiana University

Favorite thing about my job:

Everything! I know so many people who are less than satisfied with their job, and I can honestly say that I love what I do at Sunstone Health & Wellness! It is such a privilege to be able to interact with people every single day, to walk this road of wellness with them, and to help influence change in the world.

Best health advice:

Progress, not perfection. Big change doesn’t happen overnight. It starts with small change. All of those little changes, over time, add up to big change.

Motivation for health:

Children. I want so much for children to grow up with healthy attitudes about themselves, other people, food, and the world. But someone has to show them how.

Favorite healthy food:

Fresh juice. It’s so easy, because you can just throw whatever produce you have in your juicer and voila! You’ve got juice! It’s such a convenient way to boost your consumption of fruits and veggies. Plus, it’s a good way to get the nutrition from vegetables that you might not normally choose to eat (kale, anyone?).

Letters after my name:

M.A. in Counseling: Art Therapy

Education:

Masters in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Art Therapy from Adler University (2015), Bachelors of Arts in Psychology, Franklin College 2013

Favorite thing about my job:

Adding to the variety of resources in the Indianapolis area. I am so excited to bring a different modality of mental health services to Indiana.

Best health advice:

Flexibility – so many things in our lives do not turn out the way we planned. What is important is the ability to roll with the punches and our attitude we have about the bumps in the road. But also to seek help when we are stuck in those potholes or thrown off course by the bumps.

Motivation for health:

Imagine that day where you can finally say, “I did it!”, When you can say, “I never gave up! I never quit!” Where the moments of pain turn into memories for that goal you wanted to obtain. It might take long to reach that goal, but as soon as you get there you will thank yourself for the rest of your life. My motivation for health is to reach those goals that allow me to have lasting gratitude and love for myself.

Favorite healthy food:

Avocado. Plain, in guacamole, or to spruce up a salad – I just love them!

Letters after my name:

MSW (Masters in Social Work), LCSW (Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor), LCAC (Licenses Clinical Addictions Counselor)

Education:

Masters in Social Work from Indiana University (2006), Bachelors in Education/Special Education from Butler University (1983)

Favorite thing about my job:

Meeting a diverse group of people. I often say that I learn something every day from my clients and I am so proud to walk their healing path with them.

Best health advice:

Find an activity that you love doing and do it for the enjoyment you receive – the health benefits will then come. We can’t expect to be our best selves overnight – start slowly with small goals and celebrate your small victories. Even the smallest of successes can be hugely motivating!

Motivation for health:

My grandchildren. I want to be able to engage and be active with them long into their adulthood. By showing them that I can be active and enjoy it, they will see that they can too!

Favorite healthy food:

Smoothies – I make them everyday as a way to get protein (yogurt) and fruits in a fast and filling way.
