Ms. Lauren Scaglione, Therapist Intern
I am currently attending Aurora University working toward a masters degree in clinical social work. I graduated with my BS in criminal justice from the University of Phoenix in 2012. I have worked as a foster care caseworker for the last eight years. I completed my first internship as a behavioral health therapist where I worked with clients from the age of 8, adolescents, young adults and those in their senior years.
I respect those that are dealing with pain or other difficulties in their lives and consider it an honor to be able to help. I feel that the best course of treatment is the one that you and I design together, which meets your specific needs. I have the skills and you provide the direction. I love seeing the growth that can occur when people are given the right tools and how to implement them in their daily lives.
My therapeutic style is warm and inviting but direct in order to increase their awareness for change and meeting their goals. I have a strong concentration in women’s issues as it pertains to relationships, divorce, addictions, anxiety, depression and domestic violence. I enjoy building positive relationships with clients. My goal for all clients is that they develop new strategies for coping in their relationships with family, friends and work. I believe that “we all attempt to manage life’s daily struggles as best as we can.” Therapy can be a safe place to develop alternative ways of achieving our goals.
I am a mother of four children and a grandmother of five grandchildren. I have experienced life as a single parent who made the choice to obtain my degrees while working a full time job and raising children. My goal is to encourage others to live their best life and feel supported along the way.
