About Me

Hello, my name is Lauren McCoy and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Nevada. I have been a practicing therapist for 7 years. I received my master's degree from The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I focus on relationship/couples work. I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, & families overcome obstacles and hardships that are throwing life off course. I believe that the most successful therapy occurs when you are truly ready for change and I applaud you for being brave enough to take the first steps towards that change. Therapy can seem scary , but the right connection with the right therapist will make it a rewarding experience. I offer nonjudgemental and safe therapy. I believe that trust between therapist and client is the foundation of a good therapeutic experience. I'm ready to take this journey with you.

I am specially trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Attachment Theory. I have a very collaborative style of therapy. I let the client be the expert of their own life. My job is to offer guidance and support and share the tools and knowledge I hold. My theoretical orientation is tailor made to fit specific clients issues and needs. I offer confidential counseling for a broad range of presenting needs.

I have experience with clients seeking therapy for:
-Couple/family counseling
-Infidelity
-Co-parenting
-Miscommunication
-Teens/children
-Grief
-Adjustment issues
-Stress/anxiety
-Depression
-Self esteem
-LGBTQIA issues

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Lauren is a compassionate and skilled therapist. She’s already helped me so much! I’d recommend her to anybody who is looking for a therapist.

Lauren is the best! She helps me through so much and I feel safe and heard when I talk to her. She is always telling me new things to try and change what is recurring that I've tried to change so many other times. Best therapist ever!

Lauren is amazing! My husband and I are in couples therapy with Lauren, and I think the thing we like most about her is that she listens to both sides and she respects your perspective and doesn’t pass judgment. I would recommend her to anyone!

Dr. McCoy is exactly what I needed in my life- a friendly, helpful therapist right in my pocket whenever I need. She is understanding, patient, helpful, and sets expectations for when she will be back with me.

Lauren was very helpful. I was surprised how quickly she helped me see what was at the core of my issues I have with my relationship with my wife. She also gave good insight on how to make positive changes. I highly recommend her.

Lauren has been really instrumental in helping me get through my divorce and dealing with my feelings of guilt, anxiety and sadness. I think more than anything I have needed someone to give me an objective perspective on my marriage and feedback on why I’m not the sole reason why I am going through this difficult process. I feel better knowing that I can look forward to discussing the week’s happenings with her and get help with coping strategies. She has been a true pillar of support during a time where I find myself in a place I’d never thought I’d be.

I like that Lauren is easy to talk to and is really hearing what I am trying to communicate. She’s warm and always offers hand outs and worksheets to help me clarify what I may be feeling.

I really feel a connection with Lauren. There's so many things going on in my life at this time. She helps me to focus on what I can work on for the week. She's great at talking with me and listening to me. Which has made me aware of some things in my life I didn't really pay a lot of attention to. She's a great counselor. I'm thankful for her and this online counseling. Thank you.

Lauren asks the right questions and will steer the conversation in the right direction. She is attentive and professional. You can expect her to be punctual, to take you seriously, and to be rather non-judgmental. You will be dealing with an intelligent individual. I didn't expect to stick with therapy beyond my free trial, but here I am and I'm enjoying it.

I have not been going to Lauren McCoy very long but so far she has been amazing! She is very understanding. She responds to my messages quickly. I feel very comfortable sharing with her because she has a very kind demeanor. I am glad that she is my counselor and highly recommend her!
