Hello! I'm Lauren and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist in North Carolina. I have been providing individual counseling for 4 years, working with concerns that include: depression, anxiety, substance use, relationship issues, life changes, low self-esteem, and various forms of trauma. My counseling style is client-centered and genuine because I believe each individual deserves to heal and grow in a space that is safe, authentic, and free of judgment. I am dedicated to working with you through challenges, exploring your strengths, and helping you learn healthy and effective coping skills. I utilize a counseling approach that includes cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused and mindfulness-based therapies. We all reach out to supports for different reasons and I understand the importance of finding a counselor you truly connect with. I look forward to speaking with you about how we can individualize your counseling experience and achieve your goals!

The best part of every week is getting to talk with Lauren. She provides such a safe, comforting environment to be vulnerable in without ever feeling judged.
I have only had one session with Lauren so far but I felt a comfortable connection in our short time together. I think she is a great fit for what I need and am looking forward to the rest of our sessions.
Lauren is one of the most attentive, caring, and insightful therapists I've ever come across. I sought help immediately after a traumatic event within my personal life and Lauren has been nothing short of incredible in helping me climb out of a place of grief, catalyze greater control in my own life, and feel optimistic about my future.
What stands out about Lauren is her unique ability to both listen and guide a conversation via video chat. In a post-C19 world, communication interactions can be stressed/less effective when facilitated on video platforms. She's mastered this - as well as the art of conversational guidance - in a way that's instilling and enabling a sense of empowerment and healing within.
She's a 10/10 human and therapist. I strongly recommend Lauren's expertise and service.
Lauren is understanding and offers compassion. She listens to me and offers encouragement. She makes me see the value in myself.
Lauren is a great listener! She really validates my feelings, digs gently into my past to understand current behaviors and gives me tools to move forward. I feel very blessed to have been matched with her.
She's great! She really listens and offers real solutions to my issues.
After just a few sessions with Lauren, I am already feeling a bit of relief from the problems I’ve been struggling with. Lauren is a great listener and she creates a comfortable space to share, but she also responds with extremely helpful questions and actions. I look forward to all of my sessions with her!
