Hello! My name is Lauren Rodriguez and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I am a California native and lived there most of my life until recently. I obtained my Masters and Bachelors degrees in Psychology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. I am a woman who was brought up strong in faith and have utilized my faith in God not only through the good days of life, but also the more difficult days.
I commend you on making the decision to begin counseling. Life is a struggle for everyone at some point and every single person can benefit from therapy. It takes a great deal of strength to recognize those times when you may be needing some extra help. I also believe that having a strong faith is helpful and necessary during life's toughest times. My goal in treatment is to give you the support you need to face those challenging times and help you learn how to get through them in a healthy, positive, faith-based way that will lead to a more fulfilling life.
Every client will receive treatment that best suits their needs, but my therapeutic style tends to be cognitive-behavioral or solution focused. I enjoy working with clients to discover how negative patterns of thinking can lead to problematic behaviors and how changing the way we think can change behaviors. I also work with clients to identify their strengths and coping skills to assist them in managing everyday stress.
Being a therapist is my passion and is something I have always known I wanted to do. I have enjoyed a career working with adolescents, adults, and couples who are dealing with depression, anxiety, anger difficulties, ADHD, parenting issues, family conflicts, divorce, abuse, and the everyday stresses of life. I look forward to working with you and supporting you through any challenge that you may face.

I really enjoy speaking with Ms. Rodriguez. She always listens and gives me different perspectives to think about. She really listens and cares and even laughs at my foolishness (Laughing with me not at me) :). I look forward to talking with her each week. She recently helped me through some trauma that happened in my family, she always knows just the right thing to say or ask.
Lauren is by far the best therapist/counselor I’ve ever worked with. She goes beyond simply listening, although she is a great listener, she gives me a variety of things I can do to work through what I’ve been and am going through. There is nothing but support from her when I express my personal beliefs or doubts as I am moving forward with my own spiritual journey. I truly believe she can help me to start living, instead of just surviving. She is extremely talented at what she does and I feel incredibly blessed to have been matched with her.
Lauren has been my counselor for a relatively short period of time, but, in such a short time I notice improvements in myself. I think she’s a caring person before all.
Very kind and understanding. Very knowledgeable and I feel that she has already helped me in so many ways especially dealing with my dying mother. I look forward two more sessions with her.
She's a really great person to talk to. I've had times when I have had to cancel and she's been really helpful and sends me a time that's convenient for me. She is always very good about getting back to me when I need something. Definitely a great person to talk to.
Lauren Morff is awesome! She is an awesome listener and provides you with the tools to help sort out your thoughts and feelings. She helped me discover the answers I have been searching for. Lauren lets me move at my own pace and lets me take the time to realize my true thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams. She has the talent to make you feel like you are talking to a good friend that has the interest and knowledge to guide you to succeed and achieve your goals. I am very thankful that I found Faithful Counseling and that Faithful Counseling matched me up with Lauren Morff. Before Faithful Counseling, I felt lost, trapped, sad and angry. Now, because of Faithful Counseling and Lauren Morff help, I am no longer blind and can see! Thank you so much! You saved my life!
