Lauren (she/her/hers) provides outpatient psychotherapy to a diverse range of clients with mild-severe mental health concerns using individual and couples modalities. She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Lauren strives to create genuine relationships with clients where they feel both heard and understood. To do so, she approaches clients with an open mind and aims to meet them where they are in their course of treatment. Lauren’s objective is to create safety with clients so that they may be their authentic selves and work towards change.
Lauren believes problems occur when one’s personal stories are dominated by the views of others or culture at large leaving no room for a person’s preferred story or stories that sufficiently capture or contradict important aspects of the person’s lived experience. In order to produce change, Lauren works collaboratively with clients to separate themselves from their problem-saturated stories. Together, they identify times when the problem was absent, moments of personal strength, protective factors, and resources. Through this process, clients can reduce the influence the problem has on their life, make room for their preferred stories, and rewrite their narratives.
Lauren’s professional interests include identity development and exploration, relationships with self and others, navigating significant life change, working with historically marginalized populations, race-based trauma, managing depression and anxiety, and clinical supervision and training. Lauren has had the opportunity to work in four college counseling centers with both traditional and non-traditional college students, and an outpatient private practice serving the LGBTQ population.

Luis Solis-Reyes (he/him/his) is a person-centered, empathetic, and enthusiastic therapist. He is bilingual (Spanish/English) and able to provide full and complete therapy services in both languages. As a first-generation immigrant, he cares deeply and is tuned in with individual, familial, societal, and cultural barriers and systems of oppression that can impact emotional wellbeing. He is passionate about working with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

 

Luis received his Master of Social Work degree from the University of Saint Thomas and his Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He takes an eclectic approach to psychotherapy, which is informed by person-centered, culturally responsive, anti-oppressive and trauma informed care, in addition to cognitive behavioral therapy. In therapy, he provides attuned and empathetic listening, helps explore feelings, creates a welcoming environment that will allow for self-discovery and self-growth, empowers individuals to challenge places where thinking gets stuck, helps build self-empathy and self-compassion skills, sets goals collaboratively, and uses a lot of humor and joy along the way.

 

Luis enjoys a number of activities in his free time, which include running, biking, playing boardgames, attending sporting events, and spending time with family and friends.

 

In Luis’s words: “Reaching out to connect with therapy is one of the bravest and most courageous decisions that you can make towards your self-healing and self-care. The therapy space that I create is warm, inviting, safe, and judgement-free. In therapy, I walk alongside you in sharing your story and empower you to share your experiences, examine the roles and challenges that you have had in your life, and freely and openly share about how you are doing emotionally. Along the way, we will learn new skills, take a look at narratives that others have placed on you or that you have struggled with within yourself, and give power to an authentic, whole and confident inner dialogue that will help you navigate your past, your present, and your future.”
