Lauren Donley, LPC
"I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona. I began working in the field of counseling in 2003. Starting in 2005, I provided intensive in-home family counseling through Multi-Systemic Treatment (MST), an evidence-based program for high-risk adolescents and families for 6 years. I currently work with ages 5 and older and specialize in working with adolescents, families, and individuals to overcome issues of family relational problems, life stress issues, childhood abuse and trauma-related issues, behavioral problems, ADHD, and mood-related concerns.
My primary modality is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, but I also utilize Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral therapy in my practice. I am currently a Certified EMDR Therapist and an EMDR International Association Approved Consultant.
I use a goal and action-oriented treatment approach, focusing and building on the strengths of my clients to help them achieve their desired goals. I seek to help my clients establish skills to manage future problems for long-term and sustainable success. My overall goal is to be effective in helping my clients through a caring therapeutic relationship that treats them with the highest level of respect. "
