About Us

Hello! My name is Dr. Lauren Lawson,

CEO and Founder of HOPE Counseling Center. I am a licensed marriage, couple, and family counselor in CA and PA. I have a passion for helping people improve their overall mental health, symptoms of anxiety, and relationships.

At HOPE Counseling Center, we have a team of counselors who are dedicated to helping you live a more fulfilling and hopeful life. We provide several speciality services including working with teens and young adults, working with parents, couples, families, and working with people in LGBTQAI+ community. We treat symptoms such as feelings of anxiety, overhwelm, stress, work-life balance, parenting, life transitions, and communication through individual counseling, family therapy, couples counselling, and marriage counseling.

I also provide clinicial supervision to those who are Associate MFTs in California, those seeking licensure as an LMFT, LCSW, or LPC in Pennsylvania, and I am an AAMFT approved supervisor and mentor. I work from a collaborative approach utilizing the integrative developmental model of supervision and systemic supervision. In addition, I have a passion for organizational psychology and mentoring supervisees to reach their own goals as a clinician.

I received my Master’s from Drexel University, Psy.D. in MFT from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, I have a Non-Profit Transformational Leadership Certificate from the University of Notre Dame, and a certificate in Organizational Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I enjoy program development, growing teams, and growing new clinicians.
