About Me

Hi! My name is Lauren. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Human Sexuality Educator based in Pennsylvania with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, medical case manager, and sex educator. I have worked with clients from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds managing a wide variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, chronic health issues, immigration/acculturation, grief/bereavement, sexuality, intimacy concerns, along with other specialties listed below.

My counseling style is warm, direct, and interactive. I don't believe that stigmatizing labels are helpful and like to just get to know you and your whole person.

I am also a professional Astrologer and believe that Astrology is a useful tool that can enhance the therapy experience. You can let me know if this is something that you would like to incorporate into our work together - I won't bring it into our space unless you ask first.

It takes courage to seek support from a therapist to begin or continue addressing the challenges that keep you from living a happier life. Congratulations on achieving the first step of your journey to health. I look forward to working with you! :)

Written by E.N. on Aug 10, 2021 after therapy with Lauren for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning self esteem, and career difficulties

She has been amazing to take down the wall that I have build around me, myself. Her approach is warm and she somehow always manages to say the right things, which in turn helps me to understand myself better.

Lauren communicates with a wonderful balance of kindness and toughness. She’s kind enough to listen and ask the right questions, but also tough enough to push back and challenge assumptions. I appreciate her skill and helping me clarify my thinking and concerns.

Lauren has been extremely helpful to me. She is a wonderful listener and has offered me excellent feedback to concerns and or issues I am dealing with. She uses worksheets and surveys to gain insight into certain concerns which I feel very enlightening and have learned from. Lauren responds timely to my messages and I do not feel as alone in working through issues. Highly recommend Lauren as a counselor.

So far my experience with Lauren has been very helpful and had made the last week or so easier and it’s good to have someone to talk to about everything

So far Lauren has been great! I tend to get distracted from my main focus often, just simply because I am dealing with several stressors at once, but she does an amazing job not only juggling through it but keeping me focused as well!

Lauren is a very experienced and enlightening counselor. She actively listens and offers true guidance that allows you to come to your own conclusions. She helped me manage my sleep issues that have been plaguing me since I was a child. Highly recommend her and wish we could have had more time together! So thank you very much for everything.

Lauren is so intelligent, insightful, and genuinely helpful. She understands all of the layers and complexities that I share with her and really gets my dichotomies in ways that other therapists have not. She is always easy to talk to and I would absolutely recommend her.

I’ve tried several therapists over the past few years and Lauren is the first one I’ve decided to stick it out with. She really cares, is genuine, caring, insightful, intelligent and challenges me. She doesn’t make assumptions and listens carefully. She responds every day and sends material for me to complete that is difficult yet extremely helpful. I feel hopeful for my future.

Written by I.S. on Oct 19, 2019 after therapy with Lauren for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Lauren quickly acknowledged my concerns at very first session and gave practical assignments to understand my problems. She is very honest in her approach and suggestions. Responses are quick and responsibly inform you about her absence. Honest assessment and practical solutions are her best traits.

Lauren has been a refreshing and clarifying force ever since I began using Better Help and I am grateful for her expertise.
