Sometimes we all need a bit of extra support. Therapy can be the key to increasing insight into relationships you have with yourself and others. I provide an open, non-judgmental and safe space just for you to find peace, wellness and balance.
My areas of expertise include complex trauma and PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Eating Disorders, anxiety, depression, codependence, women's health and infertility, chronic pain, chronic illness, and the effects of nutritional deficiencies and gut dysbiosis on physical and mental health. I offer in-office visits in addition to telehealth services.
I take an integrative and functional approach to healing while utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities that encourage healing at the root level with self-nurturing, self-reliance, and finding the delicate balance between acceptance versus change.

Lauren Ampolos's Groups

DBT Skills Training Group

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral therapy that teaches behavioral skills including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. Dialectical is defined as "synthesis" or "integration of opposites." Sometimes it is necessary to find the balance between opposing forces, for example: acceptance versus change. In order to change, we first must accept that there is a problem; thus, there are two opposing truths that exist and must be integrated. DBT helps you to become aware of and balance these opposing forces in your life, while also teaching important skills to help you cope when challenges inevitably arise. New members always welcome.

More about this group

Creative Process

Creative Process is a type of experiential therapy, designed with the goal of bringing the subconscious process into the forefront. This healing modality helps to increase insight and awareness of self, reduce stress and vulnerability to uncomfortable emotions and improve self-esteem. We all have a creative part of ourselves, and there is no need to be a "good artist" in order to join the group. The group weaves together a creative art experiential, mindfulness and interpersonal therapy. Process time is non-judgmental, allows for feedback from therapists and peers, and encourages self-reflection. Art supplies are provided.
