I'm Lauren Todd, a Licensed Professional Counselor and the Owner of Comprehensive Wellness! Sometimes writing 'About Me' sections can be tedious to both read and write, so I'll do my best to make it bearable for us both!
For those who need it, I received my Masters Degree from Mount Mary College (now University). My Bachelors was obtained initially at Xavier University of Louisiana and concluded at Mount Mary after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but that's a story for another day. As a therapist, I have worked in diverse settings including Correctional Facilities (with both youth and adults), Vocational Counseling with individuals who have a disability needing employment, and in individuals with disabilities' homes. My approach to each person who chooses to work with me is one of collaboration. I am here to help YOU on YOUR journey! I will use practical solutions, appropriate humor and active listening during sessions.
Comprehensive Wellness was birthed by my personal realization that wellness has many variables! If a part of us isn't well, it can transfer to other areas without us being aware! We then can know "something is off" but not be able to pinpoint it-or we wrongly diagnose ourselves! It is important that we address all aspects of our lives in order to be considered well.
Whoops! Back to me, right?! I am happiest around family (both biological and those chosen), when using my creativity, being by bodies of water, eating good food and custard (It's a Wisconsin thing!) and when live music is being played!
See. That's it! You made it to the end! I am grateful that you are here!
