Hi there! My name is Lauren and I am an LPC-A and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). Both my educational background and my personal life have well-equipped me to work with people with disabilities and therefore tend to work from a Feminist Theory viewpoint as it emphasizes diversity and self-empowerment. I was born with Muscular Dystrophy and have used a power chair since the age of 3, but I like to say I live my life on wheels! My life’s mission has always been to become a therapist with a disability for people with disabilities, as well as for anyone seeking a therapist who will meet them where they are and grow together.

"I believe the difficulties in managing chronic illness are more than most of us can manage alone. Example: diabetes is managed best when an involved/informed patient works with doctors, adjunct professionals, & has family support. In my view, the similarities in treating the difficult diseases of diabetes and addiction are remarkable; few of us can go it alone. My experience has taught me that with informed patient motivation & support from family, peers & professionals, the "dis-ease" of addiction can be treated successfully. Recovery can lead to greater joy, serenity, & intimacy than anyone in the grip of active addiction might imagine."

The truth is that there is nothing wrong with you. The truth is that you have been hurt and still have wounds that have never been properly addressed with nurturing and love. I can help you learn to love wisely. My clients find that my compassionate, gentle, and direct conversational style helps them feel safe and at ease.

Being a human can be extremely overwhelming. In today’s world there is a lot being thrown at us during all times of the day. In such a fast-paced environment it can be difficult to really slow down and understand ourselves for who we truly are and what brings us joy. I’m a big believer in tiny moments that can shape us, whether that shaping is good or bad. From a very young age I always knew counseling is what I wanted to do with my life and I find it a true privilege to walk alongside others during their most tender and vulnerable times. My philosophy is to leave people and things better than how I found them.

I believe that we humans are intended to lead fulfilling lives, and that inside each of us is a "wise counselor", access to which is often blocked by obscured wounds. I believe that symptoms of those wounds show up in our lives as addictions, eating disorders, co-dependency, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and/or a sense of "restricted" living. I believe that my own "journey" is useful in helping people find clarity around their wounds, and discover new and increasing levels of personal choice and freedom of expression.

Growing up as an only child in two culturally different households was tough. It feels like you’re always shape shifting to make everyone else more comfortable. Never getting a chance to relax into yourself. This left me on high alert, constantly second guessing all of my decisions. I didn’t know who I was, I was stuck feeling depleted and anxious to make any moves for fear I would seem foolish, or worse, fail. I became a therapist to help people who feel lost, whip those nagging voices in their head into shape. I'll help you challenge the unhealthy patterns you’ve gotten into because of doubt, shame, and believing the haters.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
