Hey! I'm Lauren.
I'm a professional therapist, coach, and musician with a burning desire to help my fellow helpers, empaths, and creatives live more meaningful, joyful lives.
A lifelong musician, I've been singing since I could talk and playing instruments since age seven. I've tried a few different career paths - from managing editor of a medical journal to music teacher to graphic designer - but I didn't truly find my calling until I went to therapy myself. At that time I was in the midst of a divorce, feeling incredibly scared and lost. The relationship I had with my therapist helped me heal from the hurt I felt, make peace with my shortcomings, and truly begin to love and trust myself, just as I am.
One day my therapist said, "You know, you'd make a good shrink." That comment stuck with me. I thought about how I've always been trying to help other people, and how I've always been curious about what makes people who they are. So, after much deliberation, about a year later I applied to graduate school to become a therapist. While in graduate school, I was thrilled to find out about the existence of Creativity Coaching and learn that I could help motivate other creatives and dreamers clearly define and move toward their goals.
Now, I've got a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling. I'm a Licensed Graduate Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Maryland and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I'm also a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the International Association of Trauma Professionals.
