About me

Hello, my name is Lauren Barr, and I'm so glad that you have reached out for help. It can be difficult to seek out therapy, and it is the first step in making positive changes in your life. I hope that I can help you during this difficult time.

I have been a therapist for four years. I have worked with teenagers, families, and individuals to set them up for success. I combine DBT, CBT, Mindfulness and Motivational practices to help people identify skill sets that help them overcome issues that may be stalling them from things they want. How can I help you? I work from a strength's based perspective; what skills or talents do you have that might lend themselves to overcoming issues in your everyday life. I then help you identify new or rusty coping skills as a practical approach to getting what you want. Most of all, I am here to listen to you, and help you in anyway I can.

I hope that I might be a good fit for you. I believe that together, we can set you up for success and a new found confidence.

Talking to Lauren is like talking to my best friend I can laugh or cry with her and know she has my back . I have never connected with a therapist the way I connect with her .

Written on Jul 08, 2024 after therapy with Lauren for 2 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, and self esteem

So far Lauren has been very helpful and caring about my concerns. She has given me tips on mindfulness and ways to have a better night's sleep with a clear head. Our conversations feel like I'm talking to a friend and not a counselor or therapist. Appreciate our talks and her help.

She is very down to earth and I feel completely comfortable opening up to her and knowing she won't judge me. She makes me feel like it's ok to be me
