LPC #3518 (Expires: 2022-08-31)


Written by M.I. on May 18, 2021 after counseling with Lauren for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Out of anyone who I have worked with before (both through BetterHelp and off of the platform), Lauren has really helped me make sense of the things I've been struggling with, has helped me gain perspective on several situations, and has helped me set and work towards reasonable goals by giving actionable advice during every session. The extra effort she continues to put in to listen and understand what I was trying to work through every week made it a lot easier to be able to build on previous conversations, instead of having to start from the beginning every time. Lauren makes you feel incredibly comfortable to open up and I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
