Lauren Kurstin

(MS, LMFT)

About Me

Are you dealing with relationship issues? Life transitions? Coping/stress management difficulties? Marital conflict? Generally overwhelmed? You've come to the right place! My name is Lauren Kurstin and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I obtained my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of Miami in 2012 and have been seeing clients ever since!

I always aim to provide a warm, confidential, and inviting atmosphere where you can express yourself freely while working towards your goals. I believe you already have the resources you need to be your greatest self, individually as well as relationally. I want to help you break free from old habits, develop healthy coping skills, and find effective ways to respond to life’s challenging situations. Change is possible!

My expertise and true passion surround working with individuals struggling with relationship/marital conflict and/or those going through difficult life transitions. I implement mindfulness techniques, cognitive behavioral tools, and solution-focused methods within my practice.

I know that opening your soul to a stranger requires a great leap of faith. My number one priority is to make you feel safe and heard throughout the process. It is essential to me that we build a genuine connection based on absolute comfort, partnership, and trust! Sometimes it's necessary to laugh :) There is no judgment or bias coming from my end... just pure empathy, warmth, and a calming voice to help you uncover your strengths, and guide you to reach each one of your goals. I know it takes great courage to reach out for that extra support...way to go! I am here for you! :)

Lauren is so lovely and non-judgmental but also firm when she needs to be, wise and gives amazing guidance. I don't know what I would do without her.

Lauren Kurstin has helped council me for a few weeks now and her positive attitude and willingness to listen have helped me deal with my problems. I highly recommend her services to anyone that needs them.

In the short time, we have been speaking Lauren has been a great help to me. She is considerate and engaged in the key things I want to discuss. This is my first counselling experience and Lauren has shown me the value in having a professional voice help steer my thinking on some of the issues I face. I will be continuing to speak with Lauren upon my return from holiday.

Lauren is an excellent councillor and she makes you feel supported and like you have someone cheering you on. She always replies in a timely fashion even if she's busy on her end. She's helped and is helping me to build self esteem and confidence. I always leave our sessions with a much clearer mind and an idea what steps I need to take next. I would recommend Lauren to anyone looking to improve their relationship with others and themselves.

I like Lauren, she's patient. Even on her vacation she took time to respond and help me set goals. It's so freeing knowing that I have a sounding board.
