Lauren Saint LMFT
General Office Hours
In Eastern Time
I work from a culturally-affirming, holistic, and trauma-informed lens. In short, this means I will hold space for all the parts of you and your story. I will always center your voice and your choice in our work. As we begin, you can expect to be met with compassion and my true desire to understand you, your challenges, your strengths, and hopes for your future. Whether it’s the lingering pain of a past trauma, loss, or current stressor, we’ll work collaboratively to identify what’s getting in the way of living the life you want to live, and then create goals to help you get there. Depending on your needs, I’ll offer expressive arts, mindfulness and somatic tools to support you in your journey.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, I also integrate expressive arts and somatic approaches: Expressive Arts (EXA)- combines visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster healing. The emphasis is on the creative process, not on the final product, so no previous background in the arts is needed. Tapping into the language of creativity can help us access and express our inner experience in a way that talking alone can not. Somatics- In this approach, client’s will learn how to better listen to their body and develop confidence in their capacity to regulate their sensations and emotions using body-based tools. As a body-centered therapist, I integrate a variety of somatic practices, such as EMDR, Trauma Resiliency Method and Trauma-Informed Yoga.
