Lauren’s therapeutic philosophy centers around empathy, understanding, and the firm belief that all individuals have the innate strength to overcome challenges and lead fulfilling lives. Lauren enjoys using DBT skill building, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy in her therapeutic approach. When Lauren is not working, she enjoys all things exercise and has been a passionate vegan since 2014!
