Lauren Chacón, LMSW

With a robust background in individual, family, and group therapy, I bring unique experience and cultural sensitivity to the mental health landscape. I have previously worked in a non-profit outpatient setting, where I navigated the complexities of providing therapy to individuals and families of various cultures and backgrounds. My expertise extends to working in a hospital-based intensive outpatient program where I provided mental health services to adolescents and their families, facilitating therapeutic interventions within a group context.

While adept in addressing a spectrum of ages, my passion lies in working with adolescents and young adults, guiding them through the complexities of this transformative life stage. Grounded in experiential therapy modalities, such as Emotion-Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems, I integrate empathy, cultural sensitivity, and experience-based techniques into my therapeutic approach, empowering clients to explore and heal from within.
