In promoting overall wellness and quality of life, mental health therapy plays a crucial role in a client’s journey towards recovery. Those individuals who are affected by a serious illness or chronic condition often face emotional and psychological distress on top of physical symptoms. Mental health therapy can provide essential support and coping strategies for both clients and their relatives, while addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Lauren provides a comprehensive collaborative approach to care that caters to the physical and mental health needs of her clients and their families. Her priority is to guide clients in developing skills to manage their personal situations, within a secure environment of trust and non-judgment. Her approach takes into account both mind-body connection and community and environmental factors.

Grieving the loss of a loved one can be an incredibly difficult and painful process, and it's not uncommon for individuals to struggle with their mental wellbeing during this challenging time. Providing mental health therapy for grief can be a vital source of support for those who are navigating this difficult journey. Working with a skilled and compassionate therapist can help individuals process their emotions, develop coping strategies, and ultimately move towards a place of healing and acceptance. Through carefully tailored interventions and evidence-based techniques, mental health professionals can support individuals in cultivating resilience and finding meaning in the wake of a devastating loss.

Understanding that no two people are the same, Lauren takes a unique and personalized approach to every client she works with. She empowers her clients to share their deepest emotions and work towards healing. Lauren has extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced significant loss or trauma, including the loss of a loved one or recent diagnosis of a serious illness.
