About Me

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 fantastic. She helps me see things from a different perspective when I am unable to break free of unproductive thought patterns. I remember things that she says and I carry them with me long after the sessions are over.

Lauren is the best. She is always there for me and very supportive. She understands when I get too busy to talk and is always willing to pick back up where we left off. Don’t know where I’d be without her!

I’ve only spoken with Ms. Laich for 45 minutes and she seemed very knowledgeable. This is my first time ever talking to a counselor. I’m very happy this service exists.

Written by M.O. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling with Lauren for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Lauren is a wonderful counselor. She really takes time to listen to you and understand what's going on, and then challenge you to think of solutions. At first, I was a little frustrated because I just wanted her to give me answers, but then I really realized the value of her trying to counsel and coach me to work on continuing to figure things out myself with gentle questions and nudges from her to help along the way.
