Hi, I'm Lauren .
I realized my calling to be a therapist when I was in my late twenties and unfulfilled in my job, my relationships, and my future. I experienced the global transformation that was possible when a therapist held space for me to look internally and evaluate my heart while simultaneously encouraging me to more closely align my life with my longings. I began to see how much I loved talking to friends and strangers about their lives, what they hoped for, what brought them meaning. I wanted to provide that service for others in the world.
I help women recognize patterns of codependency, people pleasing, and less than stellar relationships with their bodies. Together we work towards replacing these with empowered communication, fulfilling relationships, and pave the way for self-acceptance and love.
I offer a holistic and integrated approach with training in existentialism, cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness, ecotherapy, and relationship training from the Gottman Institute. For those of you who track these sorts of things, I am an Enneagram Type 2, an ENFJ, and a Gemini. I live in Olympia, WA with my husband, two children, and a dog.
It is essential to find a therapist with whom you connect and trust. I encourage you to reach out to explore if we are a good fit.
