Lauren has been amazing with helping me look at my self honestly and proactively. she helps me understand my history and my patterns, and is very helpful and encourages me to think, evaluate situations, and come to conclusions with her help as to what the root causes of my issues are. With each session I leave with many things to think about ….she is helping me grow in such a positive way. I am so thankful.

Lauren, has the balance of challenging me, being firm and being empathic. She understands this field and she has really helped me already. I was hesitant being in therapy (especially since I am a therapist myself) however, she doesn't hold that against me, but helps me use that as a strength to work on the things I am working on. I would recommend her to anyone who is wanting help :)
