Erin Marcus, LCSW, LCAS
Clinical Director of Admissions
“I am passionate about the pursuit of whole person health and wellness, both personally and professionally. The most powerful and sustainable healing takes place when one is willing and able to address their entire internal and external system simultaneously. It is not only possible but necessary to heal the mind, body, emotional and spiritual spheres in unison in order to make change portable outside of a structured healing community.”
