At times, it is beneficial to have individual sessions to address personal issues which contribute to difficulties in a relationship. What pushes your buttons and why? What baggage did you bring to the relationship. Where did you formulate your ideas of what a couple should be and what role each person plays?
Though I firmly believe we can only change ourselves, I also strongly believe we can influence the behavior of those around us by changing how we react to their behavior. Therefore, couples counseling can still be successful with only one person! If your partner isn’t ready to invest in counseling yet you can still make positive changes to your relationship.
I look forward to meeting you and empowering you on life’s journey!

Lauren is very warm and understanding. She clearly defined things to work on and recommended material (audio book) as well as providing worksheets to work through. Lauren was flexible in contact method -- which was a big help as we were long distance and often in different time zones. She took the time to get to know myself and my partner so that she understood our viewpoints and could help us find a more middle ground. Would Highly Recommend
