Lauren Finch, MS Resident Therapist

Life brings so many challenges, and at times you can feel stuck. You may be feeling stuck in your relationship, or you may be feeling overwhelmed with all the changes life has thrown at you.  Therapy is a safe place to process your experiences and walk through your journey. I would be honored to work with you while you navigate these difficult situations and participate in your healing process.  My goal as a therapist is for you to feel seen, heard, and understood. There is hope in your journey and you are not alone!

I am a dedicated and empathetic therapist who values a safe place for people to process. I am passionate about individualized treatment for every client to meet them in their place of need. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I see people through the lens of their past, present, and future relationships with themselves and others.

I work with individuals and couples who are encountering relational issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. This is collaborative journey, and I look forward to working alongside you.

I work with couples and individuals navigating issues surrounding communication, connection, and intimacy.  By building trusting relationships with my clients, they feel comfortable to explore and disclose the barriers that prevent them from being able to connect with themselves and others.  We work together to identify those barriers and pursue change to create avenues for healthy and fulfilling relationships.  


I believe that everyone is capable of genuine change and growth, however, this process takes time, intentionality, and can feel confusing.  In the midst of this, I seek to hold compassion, grace, and patience for my clients.  I strive to challenge and support them while appproaching each session with gentle, unassuming care.


As a Christian, I have a deep value for restoration and believe the process of therapy and me as your therapist, are tools to be utlilized int he restoring of your relationship to yourself, your partner, and your family.

You feel lonely and worry no one truly knows you. Maybe you even feel lonely within your marriage while longing for intimacy. You are unsure what is missing and why but have an inner critic constantly reminding you of how you do not deserve affection. There is difficulty in putting words to your pain and isolation. Paralyzed by feeling numb and hopeless, you are ready to take a step forward into something new.   

There is hope for you and your relationships. Healing is possible. In collaborating together, I want you to find your voice and have intimacy in the relationships that mean the most to you. To be fully known and address the shame lurking beneath with compassion. 

I want you to know you are not alone. I work with individuals and couples struggling with relational difficulties, sexual addictions, grief, infidelity, trauma and more. Safety, compassion, and confidentiality are top priorities. Within the benefit of scheduling an appointment online, you can begin your therapeutic journey when you feel ready.

Families, relationships and connections with others impact your quality of life, mental health, and physical health. Relationships cause great joy and unfortunately can cause great pain when they are toxic or off track. Are past relationships haunting your current relationship or self-image? Do you have difficulty forming or maintaining relationships with friends or significant others? Suffered abuse or abandonment in a relationship? Experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one? Have you experienced infidelity in your marriage? These difficult experiences can feel like they define you and become overwhelming at times, but there is hope!

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in relationships and the impact of relationships on your health. I can walk with you as you turn this experience that seems to define you into a chapter of your story as you experience healing in your current and past relationships.

About me:  I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy.  I have been married for 15 years, and we have 3 beautiful children.  I love dogs, cats, traveling and the outdoors.  I am a Christian, but do not identify as a "Christian therapist".  I feel strongly that  it is important to meet everyone where they are.  My utmost goal in therapy is to create a safe place for you to show up and be yourself.
