Dr. S has helped me work through a difficult situation. She offers insight on behavior modifications that can help me cope with my anxiety. I was hopeless and a couple weeks later I feel like I am coping. Great way to get help remotely.

Lauren hears everything you have to say and asks you questions in return. For those who enjoy and appreciate a back and fourth conversation as if you were talking to a supportive friend that has your back, you will enjoy building with Lauren.
