About Kristin Lauer
Are You Ready To Take The First Step?
Confidentiality is an incredibly important component of what makes counseling effective, ethical, and legal. I am bound by a code of ethics, my own commitment to the profession, and a legal responsibility to keep what we discuss private. Except for a few extenuating circumstances, involving duty to warn or mandatory reporting in cases of suspected abuse, what we discuss in my office will stay in my office. I will cover the limits to confidentiality more in depth upon our first appointment.
It is my commitment to my clients that I continue to stay informed and educated about the latest research and modalities. I tailor my interventions and techniques based on my client's needs. Often, I utilize an eclectic combination of CBT, DBT, and Person-Centered therapy. In addition, I am an EMDR trained therapist and stay abreast of the latest research and techniques. Counseling is an ever changing and growing field, and I enjoy the creativity required to meet each client where they are.
As Fred Rogers said "anything that is human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable is more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary." I meet each and every client where they are, creating a safe and compassionate space.
Acceptance is an integral part of our nature as human beings. We are social creatures, who have a deep need for belonging. Sometimes, we are wounded in relationships. What is often overlooked is that we also heal in relationship with one another. I believe that a good therapeutic relationship with a trusted counselor can help heal even the oldest of wounds.
