Hi, my name is Lauren and I am a Mental Health Therapist at Quest Clackamas. As a Social Worker, I value the therapeutic alliance I am able to create with clients. I have studied and consistently utilize strengths based counseling techniques and strive to be a voice of hope for others in both my personal and professional life. I began my path to Social Work in 2012 and earned my MSW at The University of Kansas.
Since moving to Portland, I have had the honor of working with numerous agencies and client populations. My experience includes mental health therapy in both individual and group settings, substance use treatment, Intensive Case Management, community based non-profits, and advocating for justice in legal settings.
I understand how difficult it can be to begin therapy and share your experience. I am honored to hold space and provide empathy and validation to every individual I work with on their journey to personal wellness.
