“Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg 

Clinical Therapy

Lauren utilizes an integrative approach to psychotherapy for individuals and couples based in New York. She specializes in anxiety issues and parental wellness. Using cognitive behavioral techniques within a feminist framework (noting the particular challenges that women encounter due to societal expectations), she helps clients reflect, grow, and make healthy relationship and professional choices. Through therapy, Lauren helps clients mindfully examine how their values, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are connected, develop coping strategies to improve their mental health, and engage in self-compassion.

Pursuant to NY Education Law Article 154, §7701, as a Licensed Master Social Worker (NY license #083186), Lauren is authorized to engage in counseling, consultations, client advocacy, and other services to address mental, social, emotional, and behavioral disorders, conditions, and more; clinical social work (which includes diagnoses, psychotherapy, and treatment planning) is practiced under supervision of a licensed clinician.

Lauren is not in-network with any insurance companies but can provide a superbill for out-of-network reimbursement if applicable. She offers sliding scale rates when needed.

Coaching & Consulting

Lauren coaches individuals, groups, and corporate clients on parenting and perinatal topics. She facilitates psychoeducational support groups for parents (new, working, aspiring, second-time, and other), coaching them on matters including sleep and overall well-being, work flexibility, gender equity, and building connections to reduce loneliness. She also provides resume review and career coaching to women seeking to re-enter the paid workforce or transition their careers.

Additionally, Lauren is available as a consultant to provide thoughtful, tailored advice to organizations related to retaining talent, supporting parents, encouraging diversity and inclusion, and enhancing mentorship and morale. As a provider with Veer, she helps employers including tech companies foster a supportive corporate culture via wellness coaching to working parents. As a Keep Company coach, she creates a community for lawyer parents and other caregivers in which she provides resources and support to help them navigate home, work, and beyond. As a certified facilitator in the Fair Play Method developed by Eve Rodsky, Lauren works with corporate and individual clients to understand the internalized messages causing women to take on the majority of unpaid labor and caregiving responsibilities, reframe boundaries and assert ambitions, and improve communication while reducing the mental load. 

Collaborations & Corporate Workshops

Lauren is passionate about building community connections, as often as possible with a charitable component. She frequently writes articles for blogs and speaks on podcasts and other platforms. Lauren has been featured on Learning Motherhood, Union Square Play’s Parenting+, Robyn, Hello Postpartum, and Westchester NY Moms, among other media.

Lauren is available for speaking engagements and corporate workshops. She has hosted events for brands including Veronica Beard. She enjoys supporting women-led initiatives and is enthusiastic about giving back whenever she can.
