Michael Lassoff is a practicing psychotherapist in Houston, Texas. He manages the young adult IOP for the Pathos Program at the Lovett Center. He is also training to become a Diamond Approach teacher, a spiritual group that incorporates meditative practices as well as psychoanalytic theory.

Michael shares his journey from Sikhism to 12-Steps to Buddhism to being a social worker who has little desire to help people. (Just listen…it’ll make sense once you hear Michael’s incredible sense of humor.)
