See if we should work together

Lauren Traitz

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT122047) who works with adults, couples, and families from diverse personal and cultural backgrounds.

I have an open, exploratory style that eases connection and brings awareness to your sensations, emotions, dreams, and complexities. Our work will create space for you to reimagine repetitive patterns and more fully embody the whole of who you are.

My integrative approach is grounded in psychoanalytic and Jungian traditions and weaves in Somatic Experiencing®, a body-centered method. These pieces blend uniquely for each person and we will collaborate to discover what works best for you. I also have training in spiritual and ecopsychology to support exploration of your relationship to culture, belief, legacy, and the natural world.

In addition to meeting in-person and via telehealth, I offer outdoor ecotherapy sessions in natural settings.

To schedule a free initial consultation with me or to just learn more, simply give me a call at (323) 208-9901. You can also use my online booking to schedule a convenient time to talk with me on the phone.

My education

  • MA Clinical Psychology
    Antioch University – Los Angeles, California
  • BA Philosophy & Political Science
    Tufts University – Medford, Massachusetts

My certifications

  • Ecopsychology Certificate - Pacifica Graduate Institute
    Ecopsychology is an interdisciplinary framework that includes the natural world and human-nature relationships into our understanding of psychology and personal and cultural wellbeing. Ecotherapy approaches attend to a person's connection to the natural world and can be supportive for those struggling with ecological anxiety or grief, as well as feelings of dislocation, disconnection, or burn-out.
  • Somatic Experiencing® (Advanced Level) - Somatic Experiencing International
    Anticipated Certification: September 2023 Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a body-oriented therapeutic modality that combines the wisdom of psychology, neuroscience, and physiology in healing the impacts of trauma. SE can facilitate the identification, mobilization, and completion of thwarted self-protective responses, encouraging the release of survival energy and renegotiating the imprints of trauma in the body.
  • Wilderness First Aid Certified - National Outdoor Leadership School

Who I work with

I have experience and enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds, including: artists, LGBTQ, young adults, second-generation folks, and nature-lovers. Individuals contending with ecological grief or distress regarding global issues, and those wishing to integrate transcendent experiences also tend to be a good match. I work inclusively with all relationship orientations, including non-monogamous.
