Welcome to Clarity & Compassion Counseling & Coaching!
My name is Lauren Ludlow and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW #95632) providing therapy in California and Texas and life coaching across the US.
I specialize in supporting self-aware and motivated women who are feeling in stuck in anxiety, burnout, the same relationship patterns that just are not working. I help you to heal the trauma at the root of their patterns and build a life the is aligned with your core values, your joy, and deep connection.
Maybe you have found that the patterns, beliefs, and practices that got you to where you are today are no longer serving you. You have gotten used to being there for everyone all the time. Friends, colleagues, parents, partners, children all know that they can rely on you. You are reliable, kind, and love getting things done. But in the midst of all the roles, goals, responsibilities, and relationships you have lost yourself and gotten disconnected from your desires and needs.
You find it hard to say, "No."
You have a strong inner-critic that keeps you constantly doing.
Your life is more defined by commitment and obligation than freedom (sometimes it doesn't even feel like your life).
You know the changes you want to see to create that peaceful, connected, and thriving life but barriers life fear, trauma, and overwhelm keep getting in the way.
I provide a warm and affirming space for you to get clarity on what matters to you the most, uproot limiting beliefs, and discover how you can live in a way that aligns with thriving.
My approach is holistic. I use EMDR to help you reprocess and finally transform trauma, somatic therapy to give you new ways to respond in mind and body, and parts-work/ internal family systems therapy to better understand all the parts of you (from your inner child to your inner critic), how they show up in your current life and relationships and how we can free them to fulfill their roles in ways that are aligned and life-giving.
My practice is completely virtual and I see all my clients via a secure online portal.
As my client, you will also get access to meditation sessions, visualization sessions, journaling, classes and other online events that I host for clients as well as access to custom worksheets and guides.
