My name is Lauren, and I am a therapist under supervision at MyTherapist New York. In therapy, I utilize an integration of rational emotive behavior therapy and imago couples counseling. People are complex and often times the presented problem in therapy is just a small part of a much larger picture. As your therapist, I try to consider all aspects of your world and life including culture, family, tradition, health, barriers, economy, and so forth. In therapy I want to help you tap into mind, body, and spirit in order to gain a more rational outlook on how you see yourself and how you see the world. I strive to provide a warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment to work towards your mental well-being.
When we do not adhere to society’s expectations about how people are supposed to be, feel and act, we start to feel more and more conflicted. Therapy empowers you to rewrite your life to develop your own alternative and unique stories that you'll find work for you and not against. This isn't quick work, nor is it easy - but I look forward to working with you on this journey!
