Get to know Lauren

Lauren Mai, LMHC works with clients from all walks of life, but is especially passionate about working with children to help them better their life and strengthen their relationships.

Creating a meaningful life

Lauren is motivated by her desire to help others create a life that is fulfilling for them. As a new mother who experienced a lot of her exciting “firsts” during a global pandemic, she is well aware of the challenges many are facing.

Despite the anxiety, stress, and isolation many of us have experienced, or will experience, it’s important to continue finding the meaning in our lives. It can be especially difficult for individuals who are navigating life changes or things out of their control to identify, especially when we are IN it. It’s always more challenging to see the larger picture when we are on the ground level of something.

Relatable and upbeat

In session, Lauren is a bubbly and personable therapist. She is relatable, especially for women or new parents, as she is going through those adjustments firsthand.

Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and doing various projects. Organizing things and creating lists are coping skills that she utilizes to stay sane! In addition, she enjoys watching wrestling, both collegiate and Olympic, and getting a round of golf in when the weather allows.

Get direction for your life!

Emotions are stupid

Most of our poor decisions and behaviors that we wish we could re-do are driven by our feelings. In most cases we are probably reacting from an emotion and not even really thinking!

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.

Connecting With Your Teen

Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
