Lauren Bauer, LSW
I am a Licensed Social Worker with experience in a variety of settings such as outpatient counseling, hospice, and schools. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Lehigh University and two Master’s Degrees: one in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago and one in Special Education from Northeastern Illinois University.
I have experience working with adults and adolescents. I have healped adults struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety and grief. My specialty is working with adolescents and helping parents navigate Special Education Services and Individualized Education Plans. I have experience with a wide range of adolescent issues such as: depression, anxiety, family dysfunction, suicidal ideation, self-injury, eating disorders, and bullying.
My approach to psychotherapy is a combination of creating a warm, safe, and supportive atmosphere while utilizing proven therapy techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. I feel passionately about helping clients problem solve and coming up with solutions together to help them get back to enjoying life. I feel psychotherapy is a meaningful way to gain new insights into yourself and your life.
