My name is Lauren Ludlow and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW #95632) practicing in California. I'm so glad that you found me on Therapy for Black Girls!
I believe that you have strengths and wisdom that we can build on together to help you live a more fulfilling life. Challenges like anxiety, depression, trauma-related issues, or stress can make it really difficult for us to engage in relationships, enjoy our experiences, or reach our goals. I will work with you to get clear on what you value, what matters to you, and what support or skills you need to choices that line up with your best life.
Racism, sexism, gender identity and expression-based discrimination, and heterosexism all have a real impact on mental health. I provide a space to process these experiences, support you in developing self-care practices, and help you respond in ways that align with your values.
I use approaches like Acceptance and Community Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and Solution Focused Therapy. I only provide therapy via telehealth at this time. I provide therapy in partnership with the Broome Family Foundation to make therapy more accessible and my rates range from $15-$35 per session. I generally provide short-term therapy meaning 3-6 months of meeting weekly but that timeline really depends on the needs of my clients. I am only licensed to serve clients in the state of California.
I am not currently accepting new clients at this time but I anticipate having opening in December 2020/ January 2021. You can reach out to me at email@example.com to join my wait list and I will reach out to you as soon as I have availability.
