Lauren Wehner, LMSW

Trauma Therapist

Hello! I’m Lauren Wehner, and I’m here to join with you in developing a sanctuary amidst life’s challenges. Navigating the complexities of existence is no easy feat, and it takes great courage to seek help. I’m committed to guiding individuals like you on a transformative journey toward self-discovery and thriving. I understand the depths of depression, the grip of anxiety, and the haunting echoes of PTSD because I’ve faced them myself. I’ve known the darkness of sexual violence and emotional abuse. Working through that has made me stronger, more resilient, and more compassionate. I’m not just a therapist; I’m a testament to the fact that healing is possible and that we can overcome even the deepest wounds with work and an open mind.

My passion lies in helping those who have experienced sexual trauma, supporting them as they reclaim their sense of self and forge a new path toward connection and fulfillment. I am a
fervent advocate for sexual wellness and education, and I approach every interaction with open
arms and a non-judgmental heart. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ and gender-expansive
individuals, those navigating non-traditional relationships, and anyone intrigued by or exploring

With a background spanning outpatient mental health, substance use, hospitals, and crisis
intervention, I've honed the art of creating safe spaces where healing, vulnerability, and
personal growth can flourish. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including person-
centered and trauma-informed frameworks, EMDR, schema-focused therapy, attachment
theory, internal family systems (IFS), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and
emotionally focused therapy (EFT). Your healing is my priority, and I am committed to fostering
an environment where your voice is not just heard but truly understood.

Life can often feel overwhelming, and relationships, whether with yourself, your family, or
romantic partners, can seem challenging. It's okay to feel lost; we all do at times. I'm here to
listen, understand, and uplift you. Together, we can transform your romantic relationships, shift
family dynamics, and help you lead a serene, harmonious life despite past traumas. Embarking
on a healing journey can be daunting, but it also takes strength. You deserve to live a life that is
not dictated by your past, and I am here to support you every step of the way.

Take that vital step towards your healing process. Reach out, and let's start this transformative
journey together.
