Lauren has her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Austin Peay State University and is currently completing her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
She has experience at the Sexual Assault Center and is recently completed work at the community mental health agency, Centersone, as a school counselor. She also works with the non-profit student organization, Active Minds, supporting mental health awareness and education for students through education, research, advocacy and a focus on students and young adults.
She is currently also the primary assistant at the Counseling Lab in the Department of Psychological Science and Counseling at Austin Peay State University.
Why Work With Lauren?
Lauren connects well with clients who come from multi-cultural/multi-ethnic families. She also has a passion in working with individuals who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community and those who have loved ones who are a part of the community.
Her volunteer work with the Sexual Assault Center, Active Minds, Feminists Majority Leadership Alliance and Gender & Sexuality Alliance has lead to her growing passion in working with clients who have experienced trauma (whether old of new) and to be a part of their healing process. While Lauren has a passion for trauma, she also enjoys working with and treating clients dealing with anxiety, depression, self-worth, relationship difficulties, divorce, grief and more.
Regardless of what you bring to the therapy room, when working with Lauren, her goal is always to provide a safe space and to meet you where you are.
Lauren’s approach is tied to her way of being in how she views mindfulness and the power of active listening in session with a client. She uses Narrative and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with the clients, but believes tailoring her approach for specific populations is important. She also sees the value and strength in going past traditional talk therapy and adapting this to her therapeutic approach.
