Lauren relocated from the Midwest to Scottsdale in 2016. She has been with North Scottsdale Pediatrics since 2018 and is the Director of Behavioral Health Services for the practice. Lauren specializes in working with adolescents, young adults, and their families. She enjoys helping adolescents modify problematic behavior, strengthen family bonds, and make healthy choices that will benefit them long-term. She is also passionate about her work with college aged youth and helping them navigate the transition to early adulthood.

Lauren’s primary modality of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The cognitive model supposes that a person’s perception of a situation influences how they feel and behave. For example, when someone is experiencing anxiety or depressed mood symptoms; their perceptions are often distorted. These thoughts cause dysfunction in the person’s life and can be extremely unhelpful.

Teaching teens to ‘be their own therapist’ by learning to identify and evaluate their thoughts is Lauren’s greatest joy. The skills learned in therapy can be used in a variety of real-life situations and will serve patients long after their last session has ended.

Lauren’s areas of expertise include:

  • Academic Support
  • Adolescence
  • Anxiety
  • Behavior Modification
  • Depression
  • Parent Support
  • Transitioning to Adulthood

When Lauren is not working with our families, she may be found at the P-A-R-K with her fur babies, Chico and Chloe. She is recently engaged to her fiancé, Michael, who works in finance. Chico and Chloe approve!
