Lauren’s gentle, non-judgmental manner puts children and families at ease. Lauren is passionate about helping individuals and families to thrive, and feels privileged to share in the lives of her clients.
I have had the pleasure of working as a Licensed Professional Counselor for over 20 years.
I enjoy providing counseling for children, teens, adults and families.
When working with children I also offer support to parents. Children are more successful at creating lasting change when parents participate in the counseling process.
I work collaboratively with schools to support children and teens. When appropriate, I work with teachers, guidance counselors, school psychologists or social workers to help ensure we are all working towards achieving the same goals.
I have training in a number of different therapeutic techniques that enable me to connect with clients and customize therapy to best meet their needs.
Besides working as a therapist I am a wife and mom of two teens and two terriers named Ethel and Luigi. For fun I love teaching Barre and Yoga classes and look for opportunities to incorporate movement and therapy.
