My greatest reward is helping clients explore ways they can change their lives, allowing them to feel hopeful about their futures. I want to thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me, and my approach to counseling today. I have been in the counseling field for the last eight years and I have worked with many individuals during that time. I truly love what I do, and hope to continue to make a difference in the lives of others, everyday.
I have worked with many individuals struggling with different issues and concerns over the years. I have experience working within a variety of levels of care, as well, including inpatient hospital care, inpatient substance abuse rehab programming, in-home therapy, teletherapy, and in-person individual therapy. I truly believe that the variety of settings that I have worked in has given me the ability to work with many different individuals, regardless of the issues with which they are struggling.
I work from a person-centered perspective, allowing my clients to determine the pace and direction of therapy. I believe that the client should have autonomy and the ability to play a role in their therapy and treatment planning. In addition to this overall outlook on the work that I do with clients, I work from an eclectic perspective, utilizing techniques from a variety of theories and approached based on the needs of the individual client. These include, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and motivational interviewing depending on the needs of the individual.
I have extensive experience working with those suffering from depression, anxiety, OCD, addiction, trauma and self-esteem issues. I enjoy exploring ways to help clients improve their lives and become empowered to cope with and battle their symptoms. I look forward to hopefully working with you in the future, and starting on the path to recovery.

Lauren is kind, patient, caring and responsive. I trust that I can come to her with a variety of issues and receive advice without judgement. She keeps me regular by checking up on me, something I need and is greatly appreciated.
Lauren has been an incredible support. She is very supportive and offers feedback to all my issues. I feel very lucky to have her walk out this time of growth we me!
I have gotten so much out of messaging with Lauren and I really appreciate the questions she asks me and the observations she makes. She is clearly very knowledgeable and knows right where to focus while still letting me lead the session. Thumbs up all around.
She’s helped me quite a bit.
