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. Please check my website for my most up-to-date rates (www.claritycompassion.com). 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.
