Hi! I’m Lauren, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, mother, expert listener, and realist. I provide online telehealth services to women throughout the states of Virginia and West Virginia. My clients are looking to take better care of themselves, navigate life transitions, cope with anxiety and depression symptoms before/during pregnancy and postpartum, and get back to feeling like themselves again.
For over ten years, I have been working with women in an array of settings to help them address their emotional and behavioral struggles with the goal of getting them back to the life they want to live. Throughout my work in outpatient therapy, residential substance abuse treatment, emergency department, OB/GYN, and primary care settings, I have been able to see the benefit women receive when they have a therapist in their corner who understands just what it’s like to struggle with women specific issues. I firmly believe that emotionally and mentally healthy women are the future of a healthier world.
When I’m not working, you can find me browsing thrift shops, working in my garden, and spending time with my husband, our daughter, and our sweet German Shorthaired Pointer. I find spending time in nature, traveling to new places, and laughing with my friends and family, are some of my most favorite places to be.
