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.

Additionally, she is available as a consultant to provide thoughtful, tailored advice to organizations and small business related to retaining talent, supporting parents, encouraging diversity and inclusion, and enhancing mentorship and morale.
