Hi, I'm Lauren!

Clinical Director at Peaceful Living Mental Health Counseling

Child & Teen Behavior Therapist in Westchester, NY

EMDR Certified Therapist for Kids & Adults

My bottom line is to help your child succeed in the real world, while making your home life more peaceful. 

  • Do you have a sense that your child is struggling more than others?

  • Is your parental instinct telling you that your child or teen needs help?

  • Are difficult behaviors or constant stress impacting your entire family?

  • Are you tortured by your history of trauma or anxiety and you need help?


I help clients (kids and adults) develop healthy communication skills, learn to manage stress, and develop insightful decision making skills. 


I use a variety of therapies, including:


I specialize in helping children and adolescents, as well as adults struggling with:

  • intense emotions

  • challenging behaviors

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • trauma 

  • autism spectrum disorders

  • developmental disorders

  • ADHD

Family counseling sessions are also provided and recommended to ensure the behavior goals are maintained. My office is a safe, warm, and nonjudgmental environment so therapy is a comfortable and enjoyable process.
