Dr. Lauren Armstrong is a highly passionate licensed clinical psychologist and Clinical Director with a PsyD from Pepperdine University, and has been working with children and adolescents for the past ten years. She is an expert in working with challenging psychological presentations such as trauma, self harm, mood changes, aggression, and other unsafe or maladaptive coping mechanisms. Dr. Lauren always believes in her patients, even when everyone else has stopped believing in them. She never loses hope, and tirelessly works with patients and their families on improving their relationships, coping skills, and positive change.
If your child has depression, anxiety, self harm, suicidal ideation, or trans/identity issues please call us. OC Teen Center has a great track record of dealing with these specific issues. We currently have children enrolled who were suicidal just a few months ago and are now enjoying life while being heavily engaged in college preparation.
At OC Teen Center, we offer a tour and information session where you can meet the doctor and see our facility. This informational session is free and we will not bill your insurance. We also offer individual therapy for parents.
