Staff Spotlight, Lauren Mast

Tell us about yourself!

My name is Lauren Mast, and I use she/her pronouns. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and have been with The Emily Program for about four and a half years. I am an outpatient and co-lead therapist for virtual CARE IOP for binge eating at our St. Paul, MN Outpatient site. I completed my master’s program at Adler University in Chicago, Illinois, in 2016. I moved back home to Minnesota in 2018, where I began my search for new opportunities to grow and enhance my learning. The Emily Program perfectly aligns with my values around food and body image, and I feel honored to have the opportunity every day to help people heal their relationship with food, body, and themselves.

Staff Spotlight, Becca Clay

Tell us about yourself!

I’m Becca Clay, a therapist (Licensed Professional Counselor) at our Columbus Adolescent Residential site. I started at The Emily Program in January 2022 as part of the site’s opening team.

What does a typical day look like for you at The Emily Program?

There’s never a dull moment in residential care. My typical day includes individual and family therapy appointments, consultation with the treatment team and my colleagues, and tracking and documenting my clients’ progress. On any given day, I might also lead a group, meal coach, or case manage so my clients can appropriately continue care after they are discharged.
