My Approach to Helping
Lauren is a highly skilled Mental Health Counselor (Limited Permit) who obtained a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from New York University and a Masters of Business Administration from Johns Hopkins. Lauren approaches her work with warmth, compassion, and a results driven style.
Lauren helps clients to become more empowered, build a stronger sense of identity, enhance their self-awareness, and to feel more confident in their decisions. Lauren’s style is open, collaborative, and empathic while maintaining a therapeutic process that is always tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual, couple, and family.
At the core of Lauren’s therapeutic process is her belief that the journey to finding one’s purpose is key to living a more fulfilling life and that it is only when we recognize how our earlier experiences influence the development of our thoughts, beliefs, and relationships that we can begin to make intentional change. Lauren empowers clients to exercise agency over their lives while reinforcing their existing strengths. She encourages clients to feel more comfortable being introspective and to develop a sense of curiosity about their own thoughts and feelings.
Lauren empowers clients to exercise agency over their lives while reinforcing their existing strengths and with this approach she has had great success in helping her clients foster a deeper understanding of themselves, cultivate insight into their current struggles, reduce emotional distress, and enhance their relationships.
