About

My name is Lauren Alvarez and I earned my Masters in Counselor Education with a focus in Clinical Mental Health at ECU; finishing in December of 2013. In early March of 2017, I became a fully Licensed Professional Counselor after about 3 years in the counseling field. I have worked in various settings from hospitals, child advocacy centers, domestic violence agencies and shelters, to agencies in community mental health with positions as an Advocate, Case Manager, Intensive In-Home Team Lead, Assessor, and Outpatient Therapist for the Spanish and English speaking populations.
I work with children, families, adults and LGBTQ+. My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, school/career dysfunctions, family dynamic issues, history of trauma including types of abuse, grief, substance use, and relationship issues. My approaches include cognitive behavioral, trauma focused, person centered, and structural family therapy, and others depending on the client's specific needs.
I have worked in the community with adults, children, and families most of my life. Helping others is a passion of mine. I make it my priority to help you along your journey by guiding and empowering you to pursue your dreams and improve your life.
