She helped me through a bad time.
Polite and knowledgeable haven't started much yet into it but she is very welcoming
Lauren helped guide me through the right questions to help me assess my situation. She was very patient allowing me to express myself.
It has been a few days and I am impressed with the questions being asked as they have helped me rationalize my thoughts. Thank you. Hopefully I can update this as time comes. =]
I’ve been on the merry go round of therapy and the suggestions and tools are sort of broad based and not wholly effective. I feel Lauren is really breaking down the issues and trying to fix them from the source up. I really look forward to her insight every day.
