Meet our founder, Lexy Spett


While a teenager, Lexy benefited greatly from therapy and boarding school, which profoundly transformed her life.

Inspired by this experience, she dedicated herself to helping others. Later, she found her calling as a bridge between families and therapeutic placements, bringing her journey full circle.

Lexy has been a Therapeutic Placement Consultant since 2003, focused exclusively on therapeutic placements, providing crisis intervention and treatment planning for thousands of families experiencing various issues. Additionally, she is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (CA 37465).

Lexy specializes in providing unbiased, highly clinical assessments of your child’s or young adult’s mental health needs. She is a creative problem-solver who works to create individualized treatment plans that include highly vetted therapeutic programs, assist in strategic decision-making, and provide continuous care coordination that aligns with her clients’ needs. She offers thorough and compassionate support at every step of the plan, fiercely advocating for her clients as they navigate situations they never expected to face.

Lexy credits her effectiveness as a Therapeutic Consultant to her clinical training in Family Systems. She believes families can truly heal if each member engages in their own therapeutic process and together as a family.

She regularly travels nationally and internationally to remain current and knowledgeable about specialty schools and programs.

Lexy has a Bachelor’s Degree from Bennington College in Vermont and earned a Master’s Degree in Applied Psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles.

She is a proud member of the Therapeutic Consulting Association, having served on the Board from 2019 through 2022.

Spett Therapeutic Consulting is based in California and serves families nationwide and internationally.

“Lexy helped my family when we were in crisis mode. I cannot imagine how we would have gotten through this time without her loving guidance and firm support. She is so incredibly knowledgeable in this field and often times she was the voice of reason when we were in despair. My son started off in a wilderness program and then transitioned to a therapeutic boarding school. I can honestly say that I have hope today that the seeds that were planted are starting to grow.”
