Jessica LaCount, MFTI - Program Director
Jessica LaCount began working at Avalon Malibu because she cares about making a difference to those with substance abuse, mental health, and dual diagnosis disorders. She has over four years’ experience working in the field of mental health, having found it as her calling after graduating from college. Her own experience with family members suffering from mental health and substance abuse disorders led her to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from Missouri Southern State University. After working at Avalon for a year, she achieved the position of Administrative Care Coordinator for Avalon Malibu Integrative, a position she sought to further her goal of providing personalized, professional care to all those who need it. She has since transitioned to Avalon Malibu Residential as Program Director. As the Program Director, Jessica applies her years of experience to ensure that Avalon is a safe, healthy, and happy place for both clients and staff alike. Jessica hopes to continue to learn and grow alongside her clients, as she believes we can learn as much from them as they can from us.
