Lauren Bauer, LSW
I am a Licensed Social Worker with experience in a variety of settings such as outpatient counseling, schools, and hospice. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago. I truly enjoy working with my clients and am passionate about what I do!
I have experience working with all age groups specializing in adolescents, young adults, and adults. I have helped adults struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, parenting, and relationship issues. In addition, I have experience with a wide range of adolescent/young adults issues such as: depression, anxiety, family dysfunction, suicidal ideation, self-injury, bullying, and self-exploration. Also, I really enjoy supporting special needs families too.
I take a more active approach to therapy. I like to be a partner in my client’s treatment and work as a team together to help them achieve their treatment goals. I am a skills based therapist and like to give my client’s resources and teach coping skills such as practicing mindfulness and learning grounding techniques to help them. I enjoy helping clients make sense of their past and present to help them gain more understanding of themselves and what they want in the future. Want homework? I’m your therapist! If not, that’s okay too. I like to take an individualized approach to each client.
