Thank you so much for considering LMV Counseling!
The choice to attend counseling can be a challenging one. You may have tried receiving support from friends or family and it doesn’t seem to be enough. You may feel uncomfortable disclosing your true thoughts and feelings to them. This is where counseling can be helpful. In counseling, you will be treated with respect and the therapy room becomes a safe place to explore answers to overcome your struggles. Counseling is a joint process in which Lauren will foster the development of strengths, help you find solutions, and instill hope. Counseling should be meaningful and focused.
Below are some reasons people find Lauren a good therapeutic fit for individual therapy:
Struggling with drug and alcohol use:
Maybe you have tried to cut down or stop on your own. Maybe you’re confused about whether or not your use is a problem. Whether you’re looking to change your behaviors around drug and alcohol use, cut down on your use, or enter into recovery; Lauren Moser Vilar is a trained clinical addictions specialist and can help you.
Affected by trauma:
You may have experienced some life-threatening or terrifying event. You may have learned about something awful happening to a loved one. Other people may suggest that you should “move on” but you can’t quite seem to let it go. Lauren Moser Vilar is a trained trauma clinician and specializes in treatment of PTSD.
Frustrated, anxious, or exhausted family members:
Addiction and trauma affect the whole family. Often times, you and/or other family members find themselves having anxiety, feeling easily overwhelmed, or sucked up in the chaos that trauma or addiction can create. Lauren Moser Vilar can help you prioritize self-care and set appropriate and healthy boundaries.
