Years of experience

Chat with me

Hello! My name is Lauren Passoff, LCSW. I have over 14 years of experience working with clients ranging from early childhood, adolescence, children/families, adults, and end of life care. I have always viewed my professional career to learn as much as possible and be able to impact the largest number of people in need of support, counseling, therapy, and a safe space. I have worked both in educational settings, healthcare settings, and clinical settings. I was born and raised in Southern California and have enjoyed also living in San Francisco, and New York City, with as much frequent travel a possible. I love people, learning about people, what their passions are, their pain, their goals, and support the process of each teen discovering the best version of themselves! I am outgoing, easy to talk to, and passionate for helping teens find support during times they are confronted with challenges. I am here to remind you that you are human and doing the best you can. There is help if you want it, and that is what I am here for! I currently reside in Los Angles, enjoy dance, long hikes, walks, the ocean, and family and friends.
