About me

Hello everyone, my name is Dr. Lauren Turner. Me and my business partner Meeko (therapy dog extraordinaire) are so excited to meet you!

My therapeutic philosophy is that in order to treat mental health, it is not enough to simply treat the mind alone. We are dynamic and multidimensional beings, and it is my belief that we cannot treat the mind without also considering the body and spirit as well. Aside from being a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I am also a 500 hour registered yoga teacher and reiki master, and tend to use a holistic approach to treatment. I may suggest yoga therapy techniques, meditation practices, or reiki energy healing as part of treatment, and have a strong focus on the mind-body connection.

I specialize in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, yoga therapy, bariatric evals, LGBTQ concerns, adjustment disorders, as well as testing and assessment (ADHD and PTSD Screenings, neuropsychological and psychological/personality testing with report).

As an expert in trauma and PTSD, I am an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Certified Clinician. I completed my training and supervision through the EMDR Institute, and became certified in 2015.

My Philosophy of Care

I became a psychologist because I love connecting and listening to people, and helping them navigate areas in which they currently feel stuck or trapped. I became a yoga teacher because I love helping people feel good in their bodies and to develop a better relationship with their bodies. I became a reiki master because as a trauma specialist, I quickly learned that traumatic experiences often leave energetic wounds on the body. I love being able to offer clients a one stop shop where they can get all their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs met.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Warm, relaxed and casual. I try to be authentic and genuine with clients. I am a "real" person, and have gotten the feedback that I am someone who is easy to connect with and to feel comfortable with. Also, most people feel their new appointment anxiety lift immediately once they meet Meeko, my 105lb lapdog who will want to cuddle up and/or try to sit on you. :-)

My Inspiration

I'll be honest, this is a very intense trauma treatment. I often use the analogy of this ripping the roots out, rather than trimming the tree, but..... I've never had it not work. I've seen amazing breakthroughs in people who have felt stuck in their trauma for years. I will work with you prior to processing trauma memories to make sure that you are feeling emotionally prepared and have coping skills on hand if needed. It is something I recommend to almost all my clients, as I have seen it work wonders. Ask me more about this! :-)

Dr. Lauren really helped me overcome my trauma with EMDR. I wasn't even able to be in a relationship prior to seeing her. She is very friendly and knowledgable, and she has the best therapy dog of all time, Dr. Meeko!
