About Lauren McMillan

Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, AMFT

A native to Los Angeles I get it the constant hustle, traffic, the grind of working to pay for life not psychotherapy. I know you’ve got valid reasons for why this isn’t the best time for therapy, but I’m calling your bluff. You’re not too busy, too old, too Black, or too broken. This is “right time” because there will never be a right time to get well. This is your moment. I’m going to say you’ve slowed down just enough to feel running errands with tears streaming down your face. Hating your spouse, your kids, but hating yourself more because you’re still hurting, still invisible, still in your trauma.

I graduated from Antioch University Los Angeles with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology specializing in Child Studies. Antioch’s program prepared me for this field through a culturally sensitive and expansive lens, that honed in on the emotional and neurological development of children and teens specifically.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative focusing on strengths, with an emphasis on family structural therapy, Play therapy and attachment. Believing the relationship is paramount and can affect progress especially when treating children/teens. My “tool kit” brings in Play, Art, Music, Bibliotherapy, and Movement Therapy allowing for an authentic bond.
