Lauren B. Yerkes, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist 

My Services

Individual Counseling - 

Adults and Adolescents  (15 and up)

 

I have extensive experience working with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, alcohol/substance use disorders, addictive behavior, self-esteem, borderline personality disorder, relationship difficulties, identity development, and the LGBT community.  




Dialectical Behavioral Therapy


I offer a weekly 2 hour Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group for those needing to learn new coping skills to manage their emotions.  This group is especially helpful for individuals who have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, however, everyone can benefit from learning and utilizing these skills. Please contact me for more information.


Expressive Arts Groups


I also offer several Expressive Arts Groups focused on trauma, body image, disordered eating, self-esteem, and self-discovery.  These groups provide a safe space for individuals to process their feelings and experiences and share with others.  Group members often find that it is easier to process their feelings and express themselves through art when words just aren't enough.  Please contact me for more information.

Outreach and Consultation


I regularly present or conduct workshops with students, community groups, businesses, and other organizations on a variety of topics related to mental health including communication, stress management, wellness, authenticity, and life improvement.  


I am also available for consultation as needed.       

Supervision


I provide supervision necessary for licensure to clinical psychologists in training. Please call for additional information.
