Lauren Garchow

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I’m happy you’re here. Deciding whether to pursue therapy is hard, and finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with can be even harder. In sessions, my goal is to create a space of safety through authentic and honest human connection. My practice is rooted in the belief that this connection is transformative, and we all possess a remarkable capacity for healing.

  • Chronic Pain

  • Anxiety and Stress

  • Trauma (Including Intergenerational Trauma)

  • Sadness and Depression

  • Relationship Issues

  • Interpersonal Violence

  • High-Sensitivity

  • Women’s Issues

  • Human Trafficking

  • Identity Exploration

  • Life Transitions

  • Self-Esteem and Body Image

There are endless factors that affect how we each uniquely relate to the world, our relationships, and our own minds and bodies. Individual, family, community, and societal systems each intersect to affect our physical and emotional well-being. We also have our own temperaments and sensitivities that cause us to experience the world differently. Exploring what is happening in our own body, our own mind, and the connection between the two, can be empowering. The first step to this self-exploration and healing is self-compassion. I will meet you where you are to help you learn new tools so that you can begin feeling at home in yourself.


My strategies are holistic and vary based on the unique needs of each client. I am certified in pain reprocessing therapy (PRT). I integrate approaches such as somatic-based, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, and emotion-focused therapy. Some of the topics we can focus on together include:
