Lauren Scott, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #118504

I provide a uniquely customized therapeutic experience utilizing holistic assessments, detailed treatment plans, and interventions tailored to encourage exploration, growth, and resolution.  

I work with couples who experience a variety of relational distress including divorce, separation, and interfamilial trauma to improve communication skills, conflict management techniques, and build attachment behaviors.

I incorporate a variety of techniques and interventions to address concerns ranging from adverse behaviors to emotional distress. I utilize play therapy techniques as well as art therapy and family-based therapies.

I work with families to identify and address problematic relational and behavioral patterns that contribute to familial strain, fracturing, enmeshment, and conflict.

Therapy looks different for different people...

I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a collaborative, authentic relationship. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, expressing, connecting, and relating. I specialize in working with anxiety and work from a holistic, integral model of therapy, supporting the innate human capacity to heal within the safety of the therapeutic relationship. I incorporate a psychoeducational approach into my practice, offering an individualized collection of resources and interventions. I am passionate about facilitating client insight and well-being. I provide my clients with a sense of warmth and compassion through my intuitive nature, humor and interactive therapeutic style. I believe it is my privilege to be welcomed into your world and to become a partner in your healing.
