About Lauren Mast

Hello! I am Lauren Mast (she/her), a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  I offer counseling to people age nine and older.

How I Can Help

I believe that each of us has strengths that are vital to access and use in working through anxiety, ADHD, attachment issues, family conflict, suicidal ideation, self-harming behavior, gifted youth and adults, depression, trauma, life transitions, relationship stress, and many other challenges that we face as humans throughout our lives. It is important to me that we balance deep and serious conversations with the ability to be human beings together and have grace when things get difficult.

It is my goal to create a comfortable, nonjudgmental space where we can examine your experiences together. I want to walk with you and those who support you to address your goals and experience growth.

My Trauma-Informed Lens

I have worked in Family Based Mental Health Services, providing trauma-informed care to families and the systems that support them. I understand that individuals and families react from the context of their experience and are supported by the resources in their environment.

It is my goal to help you access your resources and operate based on your strengths as we learn skills together.

My Background

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Messiah University and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. I have experience working primarily with family systems and the individuals within those systems. I will focus on identifying how your environment impacts you and how we can use your environment to support you better or change it to address your needs.

My background is also based on the Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy Model, which addresses how an individual experiences the system or environment that they are in. This may sound like a model only used with families, but being grounded in this model will help us to identify your strengths and resources already present in your environment.

Techniques in Therapy

I use a variety of skills from techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing to address challenges you may face. I hope that regardless of the specific therapy model, we can find a balance of skills and techniques that allow you to create your growth in your goals as we work together.

About Me

I am originally from Lancaster, PA, and returned to the area after working in Dauphin County for several years. I love spending my time reading, playing video games, hanging out with friends, and making different baked goods using my sourdough starter! I am enjoying my new grey kitten and exploring new and familiar areas!
