Lauren W. Rich

Lauren Rich

Lauren Rich is married to a combat vet and worked as a Combat Trauma/PTSD Psychotherapist with the VA for 7 years. If you're like most vets, you've made your rounds through several therapists. They've either dismissed the challenges you're facing altogether, or convinced you to cover up your trauma with pills. Nothing has worked…

While working as a Combat Trauma/PTSD Psychotherapist with the VA Lauren sadly observed first-hand that most vets were not receiving the help they actually needed. Frustrated with the bureaucracy, she started her own practice to help vets overcome combat trauma.

Lauren's not here to be your cheerleader – to pat you on the head and make you feel better about your day. She is going to be your battle buddy – someone who guides you through the process of resolving trauma.

Lauren helps male combat veterans kick trauma’s ass. She works with you to develop an OPORD for overcoming pain and recapturing the happiness of living. You can move past the bullsh*t that’s been keeping you from the things you want and need.
