Welcome! My name is Lauren Woolley. I am a licensed psychologist who works with compassionate, hard-working women and men who recently had their lives turned upside down by a distressing event. My goal is to help you feel better.

I believe . . .
* growth can emerge through overcoming a painful event
* you deserve to feel safe and have relief from your pain
* therapy works best when you experience an authentic and validating connection with your therapist
* you can change your story

I received my doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University (accredited by the American Psychological Association) and my master’s degree in School Psychology from Trinity University (accredited by the National Association of School Psychologists). I completed a postdoctoral residency at the University of California San Diego Counseling and Psychological Services and a predoctoral internship at the University of San Diego Counseling Center. I have worked in public education, university, and community health settings over the past 17 years.

Please feel welcome to explore the rest of my website. If you have any questions or would like to discuss scheduling an appointment, please visit my contact page.

Warm regards,
