Lauren Anderson, MSW


Seeking therapy to better yourself and your life isn’t an easy decision, but it’s a brave one and shows incredible strength. When you enter my office, I (she/her) view you as the expert in the room. While it’s not unusual to feel lost, with some time and reflection, we can begin to understand ourselves better than anyone else possibly could. There are few guarantees in life and I am not one to promise you things I cannot guarantee. However, throughout my career I have consistently seen that when we invest time and energy in ourselves it only creates a positive ripple effect throughout our lived experiences and relationships. That said, we often need someone to walk alongside us on this journey of self-discovery. 

I’ll be alongside you on that journey, bringing more than a decade of experience as a clinical social worker. My style is best described as holistic and I always strive to create a tailor-made treatment plan to suit your needs. I earned my master’s degree in social work from Loyola University Chicago in 2010 and am also currently licensed in Illinois in addition to Michigan. I have a background as a certified alcohol and drug counselor and a certification in advanced psychotherapy. My areas of expertise and passions are in trauma informed therapy, CBT, somatic therapy, addiction, depression, anxiety, adjustment to illness as well as adjustment to life transitions and everyday stressors. I enjoy working with adults of all ages, and specialize in working with older adults and caregiver burnout.


The next step forward is for you to take a chance on the most important person you know; yourself. I promise to be authentic, listen, be present, throw in some humor, and offer a judgment free and safe environment. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or would be interested in a free 15 minute consultation.
