Licensed Professional Counselor
Lauren’s approach centers upon building an honest and trusting relationship without judgment in order for you to begin healing and exploration. She uses a variety of therapy techniques while providing emotional support to you and helping you to observe your thoughts and how they influence your daily life in your relationships, decisions, and moods. Lauren believes successful results are built upon the strength of the relationship between the therapist and the individual, as well as your own willingness to be open about your feelings and receiving help. She feels that positive and negative experiences present opportunities for learning and growth when a person puts forth the energy to process and explore and feel accepted. Humor and homework are two techniques used to sort out thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Lauren determines where you are in your readiness to change and helping to meet your goals in your journey.
She has experience counseling in several settings including outpatient private practice, in home family counseling and institutions. Lauren has worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Individuals that are battling drug and alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues or grief are welcomed for help.
Lauren has acquired her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from West Chester University and a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College.
