Lauren Harris, LMHC, PMH-C
Owner, Licensed Clinician
Services Offered: Individual therapy, Family therapy
My therapeutic approach uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Psychoeducation. I have experience and extensive training in helping women struggling with infertility, medically complicated pregnancies, postpartum mood and physical complications as well as parenting challenges. I offer a supportive and empathetic perspective so that the individuals I work with feel safe enough to share and heal in a non-judgmental environment.
In maternal mental health, it takes a highly skilled clinician to decipher the differences in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD) and fully address the root cause of the emotional distress. I believe when a mother is suffering, her whole family does also and I am committed to help families heal through addressing the mental health needs of mothers and women. You are not alone, you are not to blame and with help, you will be well.
