I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana with over 9 years of experience. I have met with clients with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts. I have worked with clients who have experienced trauma, including emotional and/or physical abuse. I have worked with children, teens, adults, and families with various backgrounds.
My counseling style is empathetic, spiritual and collaborative. Every client is treated with compassion and respect in a judgment-free enviornment. I believe that God wants you to live the best version of your life and pursue your purpose. My goal is to provide a positive therapeutic relationship to help you improve your life and reach that purpose. My approach combines client-centered and solution focused therapy. I am also trained in trauma-focused congnitive behavioral therapy. I believe each individual should have a therapeutic approach that best fits their goals and life situations.
It is challenging to reach out to someone for help, but I believe that you are making a brave step to improve your life. I would like to help you make steps towards change and living your best life.

Lauren is a perfect fit for me. I want immediate, practical things that I can do that will help me deal with my current circumstances and Lauren always has simple strategies that I can try. She is very empathetic and a great listener but, more importantly, she is able to then understand your key triggers and suggest work arounds. I love working with her and often find I feel a tremendous sense of relief after our sessions.
I was always scared to start counseling. Now I am so thankful I began. It’s nice to be able to get sound advice for what I am going through. It’s nice to know my counselor listens to me and has my best interest in mind when she provides feedback and advice. I’m excited to see how much better things will be as I continue therapy. Lauren is great!
Lauren has been very helpful. She has been on point with her thoughts about my situation and has great recommendations for helpful solutions!
