About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of North Carolina, where I have been practicing for over 12 years. I have worked with clients with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, life changes, and family interactions.

My counseling style is supportive and encouraging, I believe is meeting my clients where they are with what they want to work on and having them lead. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and strengths based. Each person is an individual and the treatment should be reflective of that.

Everyone should be leading the life that they want to lead and I am here to assist you with getting there. I look forward to working with you.

Lauren has been great so far! We’ve only had a couple sessions, but she is a great listener and offers sound advice. She’s been very helpful so far in getting me to think about things differently! I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Lauren.

Lauren is always very supportive of me, and my struggles and helps me develop a better perspective on situations and things.

Lauren was quickly able to identify issues that I was struggling with and validate my struggles with some issues, while helping me see that others were issues that were easy to resolve by thinking about things from other angles. Lauren made realistic suggestions that fit my personality and communication style to help me better communicate with my spouse. Lauren is kind and relatable and I enjoy speaking with her.

I can’t say enough good things about Lauren. She’s a perfect fit for me. She validated my feelings while also helping me see things from different perspectives, she’s encouraging without being pushy, she seems genuinely invested in getting to know me as a person so that she can provide the best type of support & she’s super down to earth & relatable. She also provides a lot of flexibility with her schedule. I definitely didn’t expect to find a therapist here that I connect with so well, but I’m so glad I did! 10/10 would recommend.

I think Lauren is a very good listener. I am a novice to any type of counseling and her responses have put me at ease in thinking about working on becoming a better me. My journey seems one more of curiosity and her responses have helped confirm that. I think having someone who listens without judgment has been helpful in paying more attention to my emotional health. She has been helpful and supportive in this short but significant journey so far.

Lauren has been very helpful and I appreciate her approach. She has the structure I need but a relaxed vibe that helps me open up.
