My Approach to Helping
Hi, I'm Lauren Shavers, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. I provide a caring and safe environment for children, teens, adults, and families who may be experiencing difficulties such as life transitions, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma, emotional/behavioral dysregulation, and relational issues.
I am well versed in marriage and family therapy systems interventions, Gottman Method couples therapy, child-parent psychotherapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), play therapy, story play, and Theraplay. I utilize a strength-based, person-centered approach.
I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for the clients I serve to promote a safe space for healing. My goal is to help each client find joy in life and to be able to approach hurdles with confidence.
