Lauren is a Licensed Professional Counselor who is specialized in working with trauma and PTSD. As research of recent decades has shown, trauma--both relational and shock traumas--can be held in the body causing symptoms of distress for years after the incident. These symptoms can include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, panic attacks, chronic pain, dissociation, emotional regulation challenges, and relationship issues. Lauren helps to heal these wounds in a safe relationship with her clients to help restore feelings of safety and connection to themselves and the world. Lauren works to find what works best for each client to reach their goals for healing, including somatic/sensorimotor techniques, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), and systems work. Lauren will work with each client individually in the context of their identity and lives to address their concerns and goals and find a path towards healing in collaboration with them.
