I am an Allender Trained therapist working with clients who have significant stories of harm. My focus is in issues of trauma , addiction, grief, shame and relational issues for both men, women and couples. My training is in a narrative approach, helping people uncover their story, leading to pathways of healing. It is in relationships that we get wounded and it is in relationships that we find healing. We are storied people. Our stories include places of harm and trauma . I believe the work in healing and growth is uncovering our stories and bringing care to the places of harm.

My approach is client-centered and strengths-based, used along with evidence-based therapies and modalities like Trauma -Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) to help you achieve your goals.
Making the decision to seek help is the first and often hardest step, and I am so glad you have taken it. Our experiences shape who we are, how we live our lives, and how we view the world. When these experiences are too difficult or traumatic, life can seem overwhelming and unmanageable. You do not have to struggle alone; with support, you can work through these challenges.

These methods can be used to manage stress, crisis, trauma , overcome challenges and obstacles, and support healing.
Most people are experiencing normal reactions to unusual stress or situations in their lives, past or present. My approaches support working through issues, and building stronger skills for meeting any additional challenges. These can include traditional and mind-body-spirit techniques, including NLP, time-line therapy, rational thinking, meditative and relaxation methods, and overall support for the journey. I work with individuals, parent-child issues, couples, and blended family relationships. Working in areas of physical and mental wellness, we partner together to support mental and physical well-being and ongoing growth.

There is hope to navigate trauma and find healing and peace.
Trauma comes in many ways and brings with it many difficult symptoms. Fear, worry, sadness, and a feeling that you can't cope are just a few. Others don't always understand you or know how to help. This is especially true for parents who want to help their children navigate traumatic experiences but feel helpless to know where to start. There is nothing more frightening than having a child or teen who is struggling with anxiety, depression, and/or suicidal thoughts. Teenagers often feel unheard and parents can feel helpless.

Since 1995,I have worked with adolescents and adults, specifically in the areas of substance abuse, PTSD , trauma , adoption, family and relationship issues.
Sojourn means "to stay for a time in a place or to live temporarily". This is my view of our life on earth. It is a temporary stay, and our time here can be difficult, confusing and painful at times. Sometimes, we need help navigating. I believe that we each have a unique story and set of experiences that make us who we are. What we believe about ourselves and the world around us impacts how we feel and respond to life. I'd like to help you navigate life so that you may have the most abundant life possible.

Lauren specializes in trauma including grief with women, children and adolescents.
I believe in the power of helping clients change their thoughts in order to change their behaviors. Clients need ways to improve their lives and accomplish the things they want to do, and counseling/therapy achieves that. It is my goal as a clinician to allow clients to see and appreciate their progress instead of aiming for perfection.

In addition, I have a passion and experience working with a wide range of child, adolescent, and young adult needs including: ADHD, Anxiety Disorders, Behavioral Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Eating Disorders and Trauma Related Issues.
We all possess the tools needed for personal healing. Therapy can help you to develop the awareness needed to utilize these tools and put them into practice in daily life. Seeking therapy is brave and I consider the therapeutic relationship a truly meaningful privilege. We will walk through the process of personal discovery learning how to identify old patterns and self soothe through healthy coping. My work is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral interventions but I believe healing also happens in the telling of your personal narrative. My goal for this relationship is to help you foster the skills to become your own therapist.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a background in working with various ages and populations, as well as experience with processing and managing issues such as: Mental illness, depression, anxiety, trauma , grief, stress management, life transitions, and many others.
Engaging in therapy can be a decision that takes a lot of strength. It can often include the processing of what isn’t working in your life whether it is depression, traumatic experiences, or anxiety. However, this process can also include recognizing your strengths, purpose, and aspects of your life that may be working well. Knowing this is a journey you don’t have to travel alone and because each person is unique and every therapeutic relationship is different, I incorporate a variety of evidence-based counseling approaches to establish a plan to navigate challenges and work toward your goals.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
