Dr. Lauren Manning
Have your difficulties become so overwhelming that your mind no longer feels like a comfortable, safe place? Maybe you recognize yourself struggling to work through painful memories or feel trapped by past hurt? My clients often come to me after feeling stuck for so long which has left them feeling tired, hopeless, and at times, ashamed. I believe that within every person lies the ability to make positive changes and live in a meaningful way that aligns with their values and beliefs. I also know that, sometimes, this can be difficult because of barriers caused by difficult circumstances, unhelpful thought patterns, and distressing emotions.
As a licensed psychologist, I am trained in and experienced with utilizing evidence-based practices to help people overcome these barriers in a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental way. I listen closely to understand your unique context so that we can collaboratively identify a plan to help you feel better as quickly as possible. My areas of specialization include working with adults and adolescents who are struggling with life transitions, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues.
I have additional training and passion working with adult survivors of childhood emotional abuse and neglect. I also specialize in helping couples, including those who are struggling with moving past infidelity.
I believe that finding a good fit with a therapist is an essential part of any therapeutic process. If my approach feels like it could be what you are looking for, please contact me to learn more about how we can work together.
