I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing with individuals, couples, families and groups in the state of Florida. I specialize in work with children, teens, adults and families who are struggling with issues negatively impacting their lives and relationships including anxiety, depression, self-harm, emotional/behavioral problems, school related hardship and other adjustment /mental health challenges. My counseling style is warm, interactive and based on Christian principles. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic , rational-emotive counseling and mindfulness. My approach is client-centered and will therefore be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Lauren did great work with me. Despite only having a few months together, we covered a lot of ground. I was not used to having a counselor who really heard me out. The first 3 or 4 sessions were not really what I was looking for because of this. I expected more immediate feedback. I realized she was taking time to understand me before commenting. Once I started to ask more point blank questions, she was full of good answers. If you are someone who has specific questions to problems you have, she can help. If you are someone who needs a listening ear, she can also help. She cares and she does her best to get back to you quickly. She is also more on the casual side. For a therapist, she is closer to a friend than a mentor. (While still remaining professional) If that is what you are looking for, you are in good hands.
Lauren is very compassionate and has a warmth about her that makes her easy to talk to. I can tell that in our sessions she is actually listening and empathizing instead of just waiting for her turn to talk. I always feel better when our session are over. It was hard for me to seek help, but after our first session I wished I had done it sooner. I highly recommend her.
