Get to Know Me
Hi, I'm Lauren, a Women's Psychotherapist and Wellness Consultant
My greatest joy is to help you break through what's in your way. I believe wholeheartedly that you deserve, and are capable of, emotional freedom and positive growth.
Our work together will help you get there.
What might it be like for you to work with me?
You can count on me to roll up my sleeves and do the hard work with you. I deliver honest feedback and won't shy away from the tough questions. I'll help you examine your "stuff", and stick with you when things get hard. We'll laugh often! I'm not afraid to talk about anything you need to talk about - no matter how awkward, humiliating, or taboo it might seem. This is your place to feel safe being 100% honest, so we can get in there, do the work, and make things better.
Commitment, creativity, and perseverance are the core values I bring to this work. I'm fully committed to the work we're doing together, and I'm thinking outside the box to use diverse resources, insights, and skills deliver the most comprehensive and effective care possible. I'll do whatever I can to get you closer to creating a better life out of your challenges.
These values also mean that I work best with clients who are equally committed to the process, are open to the work, and who are willing to get vulnerable with themselves and me in order to make progress. Only you can decide to make lasting change; and its my job to support and facilitate the process of getting you there.
As a clinician who is dedicated to doing women-centered work, I deeply understand and support the lens of women as they seek happiness and meaning in a world of conflicting messages and competing priorities.
Here are a few less personal, but still-relevant facts you may want to know: I am a fully licensed mental health clinician in the states of Connecticut, New York, and Pennsylvania. I received my graduate degree and training from The University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and my BA in psychology and creative writing from The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.
I am also a Certified Secondary School Counselor in the states of PA and CT, though I do not actively utilize this certification in my role at Lauren Drago Therapy. Rather, these certifications often help me approach common educational and familial road blocks with comprehensive understanding.
Above all, no matter what I'm doing or where I'm doing it,
at my core is a deep desire to empower you to move forward.
I help women to better manage and overcome their challenges so they can begin to live their best life.
