Hi there! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who truly enjoys working with people of all ages. My mission is to help individuals and their families make positive changes in their thoughts, attitude, and behavior to be better prepared for life transitions that can cause anxiety, depression, grief, and other emotional issues. I believe that healthy communication of feelings and needs is essential to happiness.
For adolescents and adults, I specialize in therapy involving cognitive and behavioral approaches, and often utilize the family as a great resource. I also have vast experience in brief, solution-focused therapy to help my clients reach quick, effective solutions for their issues. For parents dealing with younger children with behavioral issues, I typically utilize behavior modification strategies with parent engagement to assist in nipping these issues in the bud, while helping to equip parents with tools needed to problem solve effectively in the future.
I assist individuals and families by providing guidance, support, and encouragement in a nonjudgmental environment, while focusing on their strengths and empowering them to find solutions to their problems.
I look forward to working with you!

Lauren has been amazing at helping me work through some of my personal issues in a way that is comfortable for me. I tend to have trouble communicating my feelings; she asks me questions that I can respond to rather than having to find a way to launch into my problems myself.
Lauren has been very professional, attentive, and does her research about things she shows interest in learning more about. She gives me permission to get vulnerable and trust her with the process. Doing therapy with Lauren has been the outlet I needed for so long, and I am very appreciative of a different perspective to help me cope with the trying issues in my life. I recommend all of my friends to this site who are having a hard time so they can find some peace within themselves. Hopefully they are matched with someone as awesome as Lauren!
Lauren is great and BetterHelp is so convenient! It's like having a pen pal or a friend always rooting for you. I think this counseling format will work wonders for a variety of people.
Lauren has been great! She makes you feel comfortable off the bat and you never feel judgment coming from her. She is a life saver.
Lauren has been very understanding and kind. I appreciate her willingness to try and help me.
