Lauren Kern, MS, LMHC

Lauren Kern is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). She believes that every path is courageous and provides clients with a safe space with patience and compassion. Her goal in the therapeutic process is to guide clients to insights and to recognize their own strengths while working toward their identified goals.


Lauren’s approach to therapy is collaborative and individualized to meet each person's unique needs. She provides individual therapy to clients who are adolescents, teens, and adults with a special interest for young adults. Common experiences that bring people to her office might include trauma, grief, stress, life transitions, relationship issues, anxiety, and depression. Lauren uses a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal theory, mindfulness, and other modalities.


In her free time, Lauren enjoys relaxing at home with her spouse and two dogs. She loves spending time outdoors whether in the backyard garden, hiking in state parks, or exploring National Parks. She nurtures her nerdy side with books, video games, and Dungeons and Dragons.
