Lauren Ellis, LMFT


Walnut Creek

Lauren (she/her) is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. She knows reaching out at times for support can feel daunting. Lauren considers herself a person-centered therapist. She believes one type of therapy does not fit all and collaborates with clients to help find what works for them. Lauren pulls from many therapy modalities such as: Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment (ACT), Narrative, and more.

Lauren has had the opportunity to work in many different settings providing therapy ranging from in-home, community centers, schools, and outpatient. She has worked with ages between 3-96 years old. These settings and age range have allowed her to work with individuals from all walks of life and with various life stressors. Lauren has provided support to clients regarding depression, anxiety, aging and dying, grief and loss, caregiving, codependency, chronic pain, trauma, LGBTQ+, post-op gastric bypass, relationship issues, work-life balance, etc.

Lauren’s philosophy when it comes to therapy is: I am a human first and therapist second. She sees herself as a fellow human coming to sessions to aid the process of healing and growing. Lauren values the relationship that she builds with a client to increase a sense of comfort and confidence in their strength. At the end of each session, Lauren hopes to have clients leave with skills, tools, and assurance that they have power and strength to grow, heal, and move forward.
