LAUREN STOKES, MA, LPC, MFTC
Create Connectivity Counseling
Please contact Beth Barnes if you're interested in starting counseling at this time. Lauren will not be starting therapy with any new clients until April 2018.
I've always had a deep curiosity about the human psyche. What brings meaning to people's lives? How can people let their light shine and live joyfully despite the challenges they have and will face? Throughout my life I've found myself searching for ways to ease the pain or challenges faced by those around me. This basic desire to help others find wellness and healing is why my life is so enriched by the client's who share their experiences with me. I'm inspired by the desire to explore how to find more meaning and fulfillment in life through exploring the relationships we have with self, others, and the world around us.
It is this curiosity and love for human growth and healing that led me to complete a Master of Arts in Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. I chose an emphasis in couple and family counseling because I believe that even as individuals, our world is shaped by our most precious (and often challenging!) relationships - love and family. My thirst for integrative, meaningful, and unique approaches to counseling led me to complete a number of supplemental certifications, workshops, and trainings to create more depth and diversity in the approach and perspective I offer my clients.
