Lauren is a prior military spouse and a mother of one very active toddler. She has lived all over Texas most of her life, with only a brief period stationed in Virginia. When it comes to Lauren’s practice, she believes that any therapeutic relationship requires the collaboration of both client and therapist as there is no better expert in a client’s life than him or herself. Lauren has particular interest and experience in couples counseling, anxiety, trauma, and depression through her work in inpatient/outpatient settings for the last 7 years. In addition, she specializes in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) treatment for those diagnosed with PTSD, which is a 12 session evidence-based protocol originally utilized by Veterans Affairs.
