Hello! My name is Lauren Adams and I love working with teens and adults. As a gifted individual, my teenage years were especially difficult as I tried to navigate heightened expectations and an overwhelming lack of systemic support. Now, as a clinician in training, I aspire to address these gaps and help other gifted teens improve their self advocacy and reach their full potential. I hope to foster a validating space that inspires clients to channel their inner strengths, challenge their self-defeating beliefs, and improve their overall life satisfaction using a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral, person-centered, and strengths-based techniques.
While I highly value the therapeutic relationship, I love to get to know my clients outside of their current struggles. I enjoy bringing my personality into counseling, and I encourage clients to fully express theirs.
I grew up in Prescott, Arizona and obtained my B.S in Psychology from Northern Arizona University. I’m a current Masters in Counseling student at Arizona State University, and am looking forward to working with you.
