I've worked with Lauren now about 2+ months and can highly recommend her. I was going through a big transitional shift in my life and really needed some guidance. She continuously reminded me that releasing emotions during the sessions was healthy and she allowed me to be vulnerable. She has made me realize how caring and taking care of myself can really help me show up in a better way for my friends, family, and partner. Every session I have had with her has been extremely insightful. I feel that a lot of the changes/shifts I made during my time with Lauren were not that difficult/stressful to implement. Changing some thought patterns and habits felt easy with Lauren's guidance. I am so grateful for Lauren and I'd highly recommend her to anyone else seeking help!

Lauren is a patient and compassionate listener. She excels at helping her clients address root causes of the challenges they face. I felt that it was easy to be honest with Lauren when discussing my challenges and stressors, and that no issue I brought up would be deemed too small.
