Why Dr. Lauren is passionate about helping moms:
Being a mother is the hardest job I’ve ever had! As a licensed psychologist, I have taught, counseled, and supported many mothers and their children, but when I became a mother, everything changed, and I found myself needing just as much help as the mothers I’ve worked with over the years. My new perspective on motherhood and child-rearing has allowed me to successfully specialize in working with parents and young children through therapy, testing, and parenting support programs. I also teach happiest baby on the block classes to new and expectant moms so that they can benefit from the amazing techniques to soothe a crying baby and help their babies sleep longer! I love sharing my knowledge and experience with moms and helping moms and kids grow and thrive!
