Lauren completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at Deakin University in Melbourne. She is currently completing a Master of Psychology (Clinical) at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) and is registered with AHPRA as a Provisional Psychologist.
Most recently, Lauren completed practicum placements at the USC Psychology Clinic and at the Palmwoods State Primary School where she used Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as her primary treatment modality to assist clients with various presentations including depression, and anxiety, as well assisting clients with managing difficulties with regulating their emotions and with their interpersonal relationships. During her time at the USC Psychology Clinic, Lauren also conducted cognitive assessments and provided feedback sessions with clients to assist them to implement recommendations related to their specific cognitive profiles.
Lauren has experience supporting young people aged 16-25 years living with various conditions such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, personality disorders, childhood trauma, substance abuse and neurological conditions. Within this role, Lauren supported NDIS participants to develop daily living skills and facilitated group programs drawing on CBT, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Wilderness Therapy. This position was within a residential program (Youth Residential Rehabilitation) at EACH, where she also regularly conducted risk assessments and developed safety plans with clients when clinically indicated.
Additionally, Lauren also has experience working with people across the lifespan who are living with complex mental health issues when she worked as an outreach support worker in the Early Intervention Psychosocial Support Response (EIPSR) team at EACH. Within this role, she helped individuals access the community and assisted people who transitioned onto the NDIS.
Lauren is passionate about providing a safe space for clients, and uses an empathetic and client-centred approach to treatment. She enjoys working with clients across the lifespan and is comfortable working with different presentations.
