Hi! My name is Lauren. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Human Sexuality Educator with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, medical case manager, and sex educator. My relational 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 connect best with adults who are looking to work through life transitions, past traumas (ACOAs), existential crises, spiritual concerns, emotional effects of chronic illness, grief and loss, immigration/acculturation, gender and sexual identity, and general relationship and familial challenges.
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! :)

Lauren is AMAZING. I feel so healthily challenged and cared for by her. I've been in therapy since I was 8yo, and I've had the most refreshing experience with Lauren. I can't believe how much work we've done in such a short time! Most healing I've ever done. She's respectful, thoughtful, attentive, and just really good at her job. Book her!!!

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.

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 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.

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.
