More about Lauren
Lauren graduated summa cum laude from Barnard College at Columbia University with a BA in Religion before completing her Masters in Social Work at NYU. Lauren focuses on the matrices that hold individuals, rejecting mainstream efforts to pathologize people as if their symptoms could be isolated from their environments.
Licensed as a clinical therapist in both New York and California, Lauren believes that life - and good psychotherapy - is psychedelic. She is trained by MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies), the Ketamine Training Center and in the shamanic realms. Lauren feels honored to partner with plant and compound allies in her work, but will always hold loving relationships as the most important medicine, and the only one we all really need.
Lauren’s biggest prayer is to wake people up to the magic of life and what they’re part of. Lauren understands that the highest form of personal healing contributes to collective liberation. She feels particularly excited to share her work publicly. Lauren is a frequent contributor on stages at psychedelic conferences such as Meet Delic, Wonderland and Trail Blazers. Her work has also been featured in magazines such as Double Blind, New York Magazine, Chacruna, the Guardian, and Forbes.
