Lauren is originally from Napa, California and began working in treatment shortly after embarking on her own personal recovery journey a number of years ago. Lauren joined the Muir Wood admissions team bringing years of experience after working as a SUD treatment counselor at a variety of treatment facilities. Her skills and knowledge are obtained from not only her personal recovery journey, but her professional journey as well. Currently, Lauren is working on her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with the hope to carry it out further and become a LMFT. Lauren feels her calling is to work with adolescents and help the families feel supported and understood while going through the admissions process here at Muir Wood.
“I find the greatest sense of joy and gratitude when being able to assist families and their children in the initial steps of the treatment process.” In Lauren’s free time she enjoys spending time with her recovery circle, her family, and her cat Silas.
Music and friendship are high on the list as well.
