About Lauren

WAITLIST (daytime appointments only) -- JANUARY 2024 WELCOME Hi, I'm Lauren (she/her) and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist in Portland, OR. I've been fortunate to work in the field of mental health since 2011 and have maintained a private practice since 2015. Please explore this site to learn about my services, approach, specialties, and other information. If you think we might be a good fit, please feel free to contact me via email to set up a free initial consultation. I look forward to hearing from you! CLIENTS SERVED I provide individual therapy to young adults and adults in Oregon and New York. I am currently offering teletherapy sessions and some limited in-person sessions. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, trauma, significant life transitions, grief, pregnancy loss, relationship challenges, and burnout. HOW I APPROACH THERAPY I thoroughly enjoy getting to build strong connections with those I work with and offer a warm, collaborative approach to therapy. I work from a trauma-informed lens and recognize that you are the expert of your experience. I know that therapy is not "one-size fits all" and integrate a variety of treatment approaches designed to meet each person's needs and preferences. MY TRAINING I received my Masters in Social Work degree from Columbia University in 2011 with a speciality in clinical practice. I have completed certificate trainings in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Perinatal Mental Health and also incorporate psychodynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness techniques, and attachment theory in my work. FINANCES & INSURANCE I am in-network with the following insurance plans: Moda, Regence, and PacificSource. I also work with clients who pay out of pocket. I can provide statements for insurance reimbursement for those who have out-of-network behavioral health benefits. ADDITIONAL SERVICES In addition to therapy, I am approved to provide personal sessions for credit for Beginning and Intermediate level Somatic Experiencing students. I am also an approved supervisor for CSWAs in Oregon seeking clinical licensure. CONTACTING ME If you would like to schedule a brief initial consultation at no charge, please email me or use the "request an appointment" button on this page. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
