My Approach to Helping
Welcome to the Land of Healing! My name is Lauren, and I'm excited to be your tour guide.
I want to help you find your place in the world, so you can take up the space you deserve! A lot of us have gotten into the habit of shrinking ourselves and letting our light be dimmed, but things don't always have to feel so dark. Life doesn't have to be something that just happens to us–we can turn it into something we are proud to be a part of instead. We may not always be in control of how the world treats us, but we can work to reclaim our power and put better energy out into the universe. I want you to come out of therapy having a better view on yourself, your relationships, and everything life has to offer.

First and foremost, all Black lives matter here! Racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and other forms of hate are not welcome. With that said, there's likely some unlearning we all can benefit from regarding our views of self and others. We live in a deeply Anti-Black, misogynistic, cis-gendered, heterosexual-centered, fatphobic, money-hungry society. We've all been exposed to some harmful ideas throughout our lives, and chances are we may have unintentionally adopted some of these beliefs. I firmly believe that capitalism and our intensely individualistic society has had adverse impacts on our overall functioning, so let's unpack how it may be affecting you. No judgment here though, I'm still unlearning some things myself. It's okay to still be figuring things out. We should all strive to be lifelong learners.
