Her work as a therapist combines the best aspects of her personality and skillset, allowing her to excel in a field that aligns with her strong values. In her 15+ years as a therapist, Lauren has shown herself to be patient, compassionate, and a tireless advocate for her client’s wellbeing.

She will push you to keep working, while ensuring you know you are safe with her.



In addition to her rigorous training as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Lauren is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She utilizes EMDR to help her clients overcome mental health challenges including the impacts of trauma, anxiety, depression, and loss. Lauren excels at guiding individuals and families through the process of healing from trauma. She has the therapeutic expertise needed to work through painful memories to achieve lasting healing, after even the most complex traumatic experiences.

In addition to being a highly skilled trauma therapist, Lauren is passionate about working with new and expectant parents. She supports new parents as they adjust to the joys and challenges of parenthood. Her areas of expertise include managing perinatal mood and anxiety issues, improving bonding and attachment with a new baby, and strengthening your couple relationship as you become parents. In 2014, Lauren expanded her tools for supporting new parents by becoming a certified infant massage instructor. In her work with new parents, Lauren can incorporate infant massage principles as she helps you learn to read baby’s cues, facilitates parent-child bonding, and improves your confidence as new parents.

Her variety of experience gives her a dynamic and well-rounded approach to the many challenges her clients face. In her work with individuals, Lauren is passionate about helping her clients navigate significant transitions in their lives including divorce, grief, loss, and end of life. She is also a tremendous parent coach, providing guidance and support for parents seeking better communication, connection, and balance in their family. Lauren is also part of our Eating Disorder Recovery team. 

Lauren is well regarded by clients and colleagues and has a magnetic presence that draws others to her. Her compassionate and empowering approach helps her clients achieve deep and lasting change.


Hear from Lauren

I have spent my whole life considering ways I can be of service to individuals, families, and communities. My deep passion for helping led me toward my calling as a therapist. My work allows me to use my values and personality to serve others’ needs. I appreciate the opportunity to hold space for clients enduring suffering of all types. My style as a therapist is highly collaborative and caring. I listen closely to my clients. I challenge them to become more aware, resourced, and effective problem solvers while ensuring they feel safe and deeply cared for in therapy.

My commitment to lifelong learning has pushed me to continue my therapeutic training far beyond graduate school. I am driven to master effective tools for healing including EMDR and infant massage. With the addition of EMDR training, I have become a more effective trauma therapist. I am confident in my ability to help my clients work through even the most challenging experiences. Infant massage has given me a vital tool to help parents learn more about their babies and deepen their connection. I find this to be crucial to optimizing infant development and helping families start off on the right foot.

Whether you are brand new to therapy or have done much personal work in the past, I will take the time to build a safe atmosphere where you can let your guard down and authentically reflect on your life. When we do not feel safe, we cannot grow. When we are not adequately challenged, we do not grow. I am committed to balancing support and challenge to ensure your experience in therapy positively impacts your life. I invite you to give yourself this chance to learn more about who you are and create deep and lasting change in your life.
