 My story 

Everyone has a unique voice, and I want to help you find yours amongst the noise that often drowns it out, making you feel unheard and invisible. If you think you are “too much” for a therapist to handle or that “it’s too late” for anything to work, I want to tell you that you are not too much, and it is not too late.

Hi there! My name is Lauren Abbott, and I am a California registered associate marriage and family therapist (AMFT #142381) practicing under the supervision of Ashley Hudson (LMFT #83507).

Where it all began...

People are complex, but at their core, everyone wants to feel happiness and a sense of balance. When you have experienced an interruption in figuring out who you are, you cannot fully embrace who you want to be. Therapy is a place where people can uncover the strengths and abilities they have lost sight of along the way. It’s an opportunity to rediscover your true self, heal from past wounds, and build a more fulfilling and authentic life. Through therapy, you can gain insight, develop resilience, and create lasting positive changes.

My goal as your therapist is to assist you in deepening your understanding of who you are and what you desire, empowering the strengths you already have, and giving you the tools to battle your deepest anxieties and fears. I use a collaborative style that is unique and tailored to you. This individualized approach will allow you to be front and center, creating the path for yourself on your own terms.

 

While completing a Masters from Azusa Pacific University, I realized my strong desire to advocate for people struggling with their mental health and to help others feel empowered to overcome life’s most difficult challenges. I enjoy helping teens, young adults, and adults navigate unresolved emotional pain and unaddressed hurtful events that have kept them stuck in the past, wishing they could go back to when things were easier and happier. 

 

Throughout my childhood and adolescent years, I played multiple sports, including soccer and volleyball. In addition, I excelled in karate, where I had the opportunity to teach children and teens. This experience helped me develop a strong understanding of sports psychology and the struggles athletes face with performance, perfectionism, and the constant demand to meet goals and expectations. I am deeply passionate about working with teens and young adults who have suffered from trauma, abuse, anxiety, self-doubt, and identity crises.

 

In the therapy room, I will focus on meeting you where you are and creating a safe, non-judgmental space where you can feel empowered to share your story. It takes courage to seek help, and I recognize the strength and vulnerability required to share your deepest pain and insecurities with a stranger.

 

If this sounds like you, I welcome you with open arms. Contact me today, and let’s start working together.

HowI Help

OFFERING IN-PERSON & TELEHEALTH THERAPY

I understand that therapy can feel scary and uncomfortable at first, and I appreciate the courage it took to ask for help. My goal is to make my office in Yorba Linda a safe and welcoming space where you feel comfortable being open and vulnerable. In addition to offering in-person therapy in Orange County, I also provide online therapy throughout California. This allows you to attend sessions from the comfort of your own home, offering convenience and reducing the stress of traffic and scheduling. I aim to make the therapy experience as easy, stress-free, and comfortable as possible. Whether in person or remotely, I am here to support you.
