As a licensed Mental Health Counselor, my focus is on getting to know each of my clients and their specific goals and/or challenges, in order to develop individualized plans to help them thrive. My personal life experiences have steered me towards the Therapy Specialties listed above. As a former Division 1 NCAA tennis athlete, I have first-hand insight into the challenges and pressures that come along with competing at the highest levels of sport . Likewise, my experience of losing a parent to cancer as an adolescent has left me with a passion for helping others that are experiencing and trying to process their own grief. Last but not least, my primary day job- counseling adolescents who are often dealing with the earliest stages of behavioral health challenges- leaves me well-suited to help teenagers and young adults with the sometimes scary task of working on their mental health. I too as an adolescent dealt with anxiety and with the help of a therapist, was able to find ways to cope as an adult. If you think that you could benefit from speaking with a counselor with any of these areas of expertise, I would be honored to work with you!

As my wife and I were splitting up, the emotional toll on my daughter was difficult and intense. Lauren has offered a feeling of safety during a tough time. Without knowing details of their sessions, my daughter is visibly relieved afterward. I appreciate that.
Lauren has been an excellent help, I have recommended her through teen counseling to my friends who contemplate going to therapy!
Lauren has been supportive from the moment I reached out, and I've thoroughly enjoyed all the help I've received from her!
