Lauren Vilar, LCSW, LCAS
I was deeply impacted by the pain and suffering that accompany mental health and substance use disorders. I have an innate passion for helping others that continued to grow once I learned the science. My goal is to help my clients feel compassion, empathy, and accountability.
The supervisors I had while in my internships and associate licensure period were critical to my career. I was held to a high standard of ethics and boundaries while also encouraged to develop my own flavor of therapy.
My hope is to help develop and hone the skills of other clinical social workers. I believe that with more social workers, many of the societal issues we see today could be diminished. I hope they take their knowledge and share with others.
