Areas of Exploration — Counseling & Consultation

Counseling Services

In private practice as a mental health counselor (counseling psychologist), Lawrence specializes in person-centered, existential therapeutic approaches for clients. This means, the client guides and discovers purpose in the process of therapy. Lawrence offers services for adults, adolescents, or children.

One of the biggest challenges for leaders is not a lack of knowledge, commitment, vision or other common leadership qualities; it’s a lack of emotional intelligence. In particular, it’s an inability to understand how one’s past or present unprocessed emotional experiences can influence one’s personal growth and interpersonal relationships. This can unintentionally contribute to pain and hurt for the people leaders serve. It is something that leaders often forget to consider, but it’s a blind spot that can change as a leader starts noticing.
