Lauren Russell, M.A.

People experience pain and loss in a range of ways. After you experience something life-altering, it can be difficult to figure out how to engage in healthy relationships and enjoy your life again. However, there is always hope. There are effective, compassionate ways to heal hurt and confusion that I can explore with you.

I believe in the healing benefits of nature, mindfulness, and body-centered activities as therapy. When it is appropriate, I encourage the people I work with to take part in what they find beneficial in those areas. I also find importance in symbols and rituals when trying to make meaning of difficult life transitions and events.

The connections we have with our world and the people in it shape our stories. I have a decade of experience in the mental health and addiction field working with individuals from all walks of life. I work with people of all gender and sexual orientations in a safe environment that allows for the exploration of your individual path. In therapy, I want to build a relationship with you that provides relief from suffering, guides you to your own truth, and helps reveal the answers that reside inside you. 

CLINICAL SPECIALTIES: M therapeutic approach is a blend of approaches rooted in Mindfulness based interventions, Experiential therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral therapy, (DBT). I specialize in helping those with a history of depression, anxiety, life transitions, gender-related issues, sexuality, trauma, abuse, addiction and codependency.
