As a therapist, my commitment lies in creating a secure and non-judgmental environment where individuals can delve into their thoughts, process trauma, navigate through grief, and foster personal growth. I actively encourage people to unearth their inner creativity and nurture that vibrant spark within. Recognizing that creativity and self-expression are integral to my approach, I believe in harnessing creative coping mechanisms that are accessible in our day-to-day lives.
My practice involves guiding individuals to reflect, process, and reintegrate by employing a blend of both verbal communication and art therapy techniques. I find fulfillment in assisting people facing diverse challenges. My focus frequently centers around clients dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, PTSD, and CPTSD.
In acknowledging the distinctiveness of every individual, I strive to connect with them at their current stage. My goal is to help them establish new paths for the future, facilitating their journey to embrace the present rather than being confined by the past. I am dedicated to empowering them to make informed decisions as they move forward.

Lauren is always a bright light in the storm. She always puts her client's best interests first and gives them the space they need to grow and heal. I have worked beside her as my co-leader and she was truly a blessing and had a lot to bring to the group.
