Before I started seeing Lauren, I didn’t know what to think about therapy. I think I mainly thought of it more in a negative way vs a positive thing. While working with Lauren, I felt my self-confidence grow and I believe I was able to become a better version of myself.
I came to Lauren in October of 2016 after I lost my mom. I was 16 years old and was very hesitant about going to therapy. I use the skills that she has given me daily and even recommend them to my loved ones.
My favorite aspect of going to her sessions was that she wouldn't let me stay in the same rut. I felt that every session I made progress and that was very important for me. In addition, she is also very caring and open with her schedule and that made me feel that I was more than just a client.
For the past three years, Lauren has aided me in making unbelievable progress. She has helped me process the events in my life in a healthy manner, and identify goals for myself. When I look back on the place I was at when I first met Lauren, I am completely stunned by the progress I've made.
Lauren is an incredibly respectful therapist, regardless of your background or identity. Lauren saw me as a whole individual and helped me work on my fears of opening up to the other people while respecting and validating my identity as a part of me, rather than a symptom.
Lauren is a wonderful person and does her job well. It was very easy for me to get comfortable with her as she possesses a very friendly and inviting aura.
