Lauren Wright Egleston, LPC, LCAS, Counselor in Matthews
Do you ever feel stressed or overwhelmed by others' expectations? Do you sometimes struggle to feel fully engaged with life? Battling with an addiction or eating disorder is a painful process that is driven by secrecy and control. My goal is to help break down these walls and bring what hides in the darkness into the light in a nonjudgmental, caring, and compassionate manner so you can begin to see a different way of living. I truly believe only when you feel enough support and safety are you able to begin making choices for health and recovery.
When working with clients, my primary goal is not to "get rid" of symptoms or painful thoughts and emotions. Instead, my passion lies in guiding the client towards committed action for a valued and meaningful life and letting recovery and symptom relief be the byproduct.
My training as a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist uniquely qualifies me to work with individuals and families struggling with addiction and other behavioral issues. I invite you to reach out to me for a free consultation to start your path towards wellness and recovery.
