Lauren (she/her) works to nurture a warm and collaborative relationship with clients, bringing a trauma-informed and intersectional feminist approach to counselling. Lauren believes that the quality of our relationships impacts the quality of our lives, and she draws on attachment theory to help explore the ways in which our network of relationships shape us throughout life.
Lauren is passionate about supporting clients navigating relationships, sexuality, life transitions, and identity development. She actively tailors her therapeutic approach to meet the unique needs and goals of each person she works with, drawing on existential and experiential therapies in combination with practical cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness-based tools to support self-discovery, healing, and growth.
Lauren holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from UBC and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. She is also a registered provider with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) and is a Certified Complex Trauma Treatment Level II Professional (CCTP-II). Lauren’s clinical experience has led her to work in non-profit, educational, and community settings with adolescents, adults, and intimate relationships. When she’s not at Peak, Lauren works at a small non-profit supporting kids and families moving through the foster care system.
