For most of my educational and professional career I have worked and counseled in a Christian organization and environment. I have seen personally the healing power and the peace that can be achieved through spiritual awakening, renewal, and faith. I don't claim to be a Biblical scholar, but I do know that finding or rediscovering purpose and meaning in life through spiritual strength can help bring perspective and healing to personal and relationship challenges. Prayer and spiritual exploration can help bring answers, acceptance, and peace. Biblical stories can bring life lessons into focus and help you to see a way forward.
In times of personal strife and sorrow, it is not unusual or wrong to doubt and question God, be angry with Him, or even to question if He exists. Somewhere along the way, you may have lost your sense of purpose and meaning in life. He understands those feelings, and so do I. Let's talk it over honestly and without judgement. Wherever you are in your relationship with God, there is a reason that brought you here. Trust that reason. I am here for you.
God already knows your heart, loves you, and forgives you. Approaching your personal, family, and relationship struggles in a partnership with Him can be a great source of strength and comfort in difficult times. Let's explore together all that God has put in your path.

Lauren is very insightful and she brings a great deal of expertise and professional experience to each session. She is an active listener, who shows both warmth and compassion. She is not timid when it comes to challenging you towards change and she is good at getting to the root of the issues that are causing continued life sabotaging behaviors. I am extremely grateful for her and the support that she has given me and I feel that anyone who has the opportunity to have her as a counselor will be immensely blessed!
I found Lauren to be an excellent listener who then developed an action plan that was relevant, practical, and effective. Should I feel the need is warranted for Lauren's excellent/objective input in the future, I will be sure to contact her again.
