Lauren Sawyer



Lauren is a Licensed Professional Counselor who is a board eligible National Certified Counselor. She also is certified in Civil and Family Mediation through the Center for Dispute Resolution at Missouri State University. In counseling, Lauren uses play therapy and other creative methods to work with children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, social skills, relationship difficulties, traumas, and other behavioral issues. As a mediator, Lauren acts as a neutral third party to provide an environment in which individuals in conflict are allowed to reach resolutions amenable to each participating entity.

At Counseling Solutions, my goal is to provide an accepting environment in which clients are comfortable to express their feelings and are encouraged to participate in activities that will lead to personal growth and conflict resolution. When working with children and adolescents, I believe it is essential to integrate the family and/or support system into therapy in order to increase the likelihood of achieving a positive outcome. As each client is different, I will adapt my counseling style to meet the needs of individual clients.
