Hi, I’m Lauren!

I'm an attachment based emotion-focused therapist licensed in New York and I specialize in working with adults and couples.

I help individuals and couples in their 20s through 40s find wholeness within their mind, body and spirit.

Credentials

underline-small
  • Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University.
  • Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Southern Connecticut State University

My approach is  holistic and collaborative.

My work is based on the individual and I bring a collaborative approach to our sessions and incorporate techniques from Ecosystemic Family therapy, Emotional Focus Therapy, and Mindfullness. I also have extensive experience working with the neurodiverse population.

I work to uncover patterns and to understand emotional reactions to better empower ourselves in the face of change or stress. In my couples work, I help couples find more connection, intimacy and joy.

finding peace and joy

In a constantly changing world it is hard to find the time to tap into our hearts and find peace and joy.

This can lead to feelings of sadness and hopelessness. Therapy is like a mirror that can help you rediscover you joy, peace and reconnect to yourself, loved ones and your life’s purpose.

In working together in therapy we rediscover your true self and develop a deeper understanding of how you can start new patterns by identifying old patterns you would like to change.

This is your invitation to find clarity in a safe space. Embracing your truth can help you transform your inner self and outer life.

I have deep trust in the unfolding process that will occur during therapy.

Join me in a safe space to unpack your life and find your authentic voice.
