My name is Lauren Fawley, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters degree in community counseling. Prior to becoming an online counselor, I worked as an outpatient therapist for five years in the diverse city of Phoenix, AZ. I'm happy that while I no longer live in a major city, online counseling provides me the opportunity to continue to work with people from all backgrounds.
My experience comes from working with adults with gentle mental health, addiction, family concerns, and other relationship problems. I've had the experience to work with people in the short-term, for instance to support them through a major life event or difficult relationship situation. I've also worked with people in the long-term to help manage and recover from depression, anxiety, addiction, grief, and trauma and abuse.
I strongly believe in every person's potential to grow and change his or her life for the better, whatever that may look like for you! Our therapy will be directed by you, meaning we will work together on your unique and specific needs.
I am trained in motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. If you have never heard of any of that, please know that all you need to know when entering into therapy is that you will be treated with respect and that what you say will be keep in confidence. I am really grateful that I get to listen to people's stories for a living; above all, I will work to understand and empower you!
I sincerely hope to hear from you.

I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

I feel very comfortable with my counselor. I have had difficulty in the past opening up to people, and feeling heard in the issues I have presented. Lauren not only listens, but shows true understanding in what I am experiencing. I feel that she listens to, understands, and provides solid feedback on every detail of what I say. She asks probing questions when necessary, and I feel that she really cares about me. I look forward to each session we have, which has not always been the case when I have gone to therapy in the past. Thank you Lauren.
Lauren is an amazing and very effective counselor.
She is great - really understanding and extremely helpful.
You know, we are still in the midst of our sessions but I can say that I don't trust many people. It is something that is earned rather than given and I think Lauren is an outstanding therapist and does her absolute best to keep people focused on how problems develop, and how to endure or navigate those problems. She does not beat around the bush; if you ask for a straight answer, that's what you should expect. I would recommend her to anyone with family problems especially in circumstances that involve parent and child reunification.
Lauren is amazing!
Lauren has been great - very understanding and patient with me as I'm going through a tumultuous period in my life.
