About the Therapist: TeamMember

Lauren M. Pluchino, MSW, LCSW

I am a New Jersey Licensed Clinical Social Worker (also known as a "psychotherapist") with ten years experience helping clients move towards emotional and mental health and well-being. Working with adults and older adults in individual therapy, I use an integrative approach designed to suit the specific needs of each of my clients. My holistic, person-centered approach to therapy has helped numerous clients successfully navigate and overcome issues including, but not limited to:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Relationship issues

  • Work-life imbalances

  • Eating Disorders/emotional eating

  • Life transition issues

  • LGBTQ+ issues

  • Chronic or terminal health issues

  • Grief and loss (miscarriage, pregnancy, death of a loved one, and anticipatory grief)

  • Spiritual Concerns

I believe that by incorporating the right therapeutic approach, a holistic view of overall wellness, and genuine support and empathy, I empower my clients to succeed on each of their own personal paths to emotional peace and wellness.
