Lauren Hawkins

7 years of experience

Hello! My name is Lauren and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in Texas. I earned my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Sam Houston State University. I have over 5 years of experience in working with mental health and substance use concerns. I have worked with individuals ages four to adult with a variety of mental health/behavioral presenting issues such as: addictions, anxiety, depression, trauma, phase-of-life problems, relationship and family issues, career challenges, and many more. I have also worked with many clients who have experienced physical trauma, psychological or emotional abuse. My experience is varied and across a wide array of settings, as I have provided individual and group therapy in community mental health agencies, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health hospitals, transitional living programs, and schools. I have provided crisis intervention services in the community setting as part of a crisis intervention response team. Prior to my work as a therapist, I was a teacher and coach. Mental health is a journey, and while you may feel lost now, that is not an indication of how your life will continue. It takes courage to identify that there may be steps to take in order to strive for a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and encourage you. Wherever you're at on your journey, I am willing to meet you there and support you in reaching your desired destination. I look forward to working with you!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we will start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you are facing. This will help us create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

One of my biggest strengths is being able to meet clients where they are in their mental health journey. I wholeheartedly believe that counseling is a process and I enjoy working with clients on their journey to reach their counseling goals. Through the process, counseling goals may change, and I believe it is imperative to walk alongside clients down their path to achieving their goals. I believe in helping clients hold themselves accountable to work towards and reach their goals.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I believe that clients can achieve their full potential once they are able to connect their thought processes with their behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows clients to assess any flawed, distorted, or negative thinking about themselves or their lives, and determine how their behavior is affected by this way of thinking. Together we can work through ways to change this way of thinking and behaving.
