Hello! My name is Lauren Rodriguez and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I am a California native and lived there most of my life until recently. I obtained my Masters and Bachelors degrees in Psychology from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
I commend you both on making the decision to begin counseling. Marriage is a beautiful commitment, but at times it can be difficult and take some work. It takes a great deal of strength to recognize those times when you may be needing some extra help. My goal in treatment is to give you the support you need to face those challenging times and help you learn how to get through them in a healthy, positive way that will lead to a more fulfilling life.
Every couple will receive treatment that best suits their needs, but my therapeutic style tends to be cognitive-behavioral or solution focused. I enjoy working with couples to discover how negative patterns of thinking can lead to problematic behaviors and how changing the way we think can change behaviors. I also work with couples to identify their strengths and coping skills to assist them in managing everyday stress.
Being a therapist is my passion and is something I have always known I wanted to do. I have enjoyed a career working with adolescents, adults, and couples. Specifically, I have worked with couples in private practice, helping them learn how to communicate more effectively, build trust, and manage the challenges of life together and strengthen their relationship in the process. I look forward to working with you and supporting you through any challenge that you may face.
