Hello! I'm Lauren and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been providing individual counseling for 5 years, working with concerns that include: depression, anxiety, substance use, relationship issues, life changes, low self-esteem, and various forms of trauma.

We all reach out to supports for different reasons and I understand the importance of finding a counselor you truly connect with. I look forward to speaking with you about how we can individualize your counseling experience and achieve your goals!

Lauren has been an incredible support system over the last nearly year and a half. Through struggles with major life changes (moving, diagnosis of a chronic illness, etc.), grief, relationship struggles, anxiety, depression, and just generally learning how to allow myself grace, she has been not only a friendly face with kind words but can also tell you how it really is by reframing the situation in a way you may have never thought of. I cannot begin to convey how much her time each week has meant. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for support who is unsure where to start. Thank you, Lauren!

This is my first time in therapy and I wasn’t very open to it/comfortable with it until I got signed up with Lauren Camacho. She is an amazing therapist and has helped me make a lot of progress in things I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

I've only worked with Lauren for a few sessions, but she's been so great so far. She has a calm and empathetic presence and does a great job of directing our sessions and introducing new concepts.

Lauren is amazing!! From the very first session I felt completely respected and understood. She has an incredible ability to respond to concerns in a non-judgmental, genuine, and helpful way. Lauren has helped me grow as a person and was there for me every step of the way during our time together. Her emotional IQ is very high and I can confidently recommend her to anyone in need of help.
