Lauren Diaz, LCSW

I am a therapist who actively listens, recognizes patterns, and will assist individuals with naming the things that may be creating barriers within their life. If you are open to exploring various techniques that may assist with managing life stressors in a healthier way, I am the right person for you. 


As an individual, I’ve always made it my goal to make a positive impact in people’s lives. Growing up in Texas, I enjoyed volunteering with various organizations while gathering resources for those in need. In 2014, I graduated from the University of North Texas in Denton with a major in social work and a minor in Spanish and chemical dependency. Then pursued a master’s degree in social work focusing on mental health at the University of Texas at Arlington.

While in Texas, I had the opportunity to work with people suffering from domestic violence, chemical dependency, major depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, and those who are experiencing antisocial behaviors. In 2019, I moved to Alabama, where I worked with those suffering from eating disorders while preparing for my first baby boy to arrive. When the pandemic hit, I became a stay-at-home mother, virtual personal trainer and continued my role as a therapist on the weekends until I was ready to return to work at a private practice full-time. It was then I found myself often working individuals struggling with ADHD, anxiety, and depression. By 2023, I had the opportunity to make my way back home to Texas to continue pursing a career that would allow me to integrate mental health and movement into a therapeutic setting. Therapeutic art, mindfulness, and movement are various techniques I may use during a session but vary from each individual. I believe the mental and physical state we are in plays a vital role in our overall health and wellbeing. I believe in quality over quantity care, in which I strive to empower, advocate, and educate everyone I meet.
