Professional statement

Lauren Lowenthal is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Tukwila, WA who specializes in working with traditional and nontraditional college students and young adults in the following areas: depression, anxiety, trauma, including childhood trauma, loss and grief, and career challenges. Lauren also has experience working with adults across the lifespan.

When working with clients with a history of trauma, Lauren utilizes a combination of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to help her clients change their thought patterns and reduce the memories' lasting effects. She also helps clients gain a better understanding of the mind-body connection to reduce both their mental and physical symptoms.

Lauren spends time getting to know her clients before developing an effective individualized treatment plan. She utilizes a number of different treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, mindfulness practices, and Supportive Therapy. Knowing they are the expert in their lives, Lauren lets her clients drive the session.

Lauren will both challenge and support you on your journey towards healing and actively pursuing the life you want. She entered the counseling profession after spending over two decades working in corporate human resources and organizational consulting. She looks forward to meeting you.
