Lauren L. Staley, M.A.
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
For 18 years I worked as a forensic accountant but it wasn't until 2017 that I decided to pursue my real passion for leading others towards healing. I stepped down from my management position to pursue my masters in marriage and family therapy. I love working with couples and families as they navigate life's stressors and explore ways to cope and heal. Whether working with individuals or a group, I enjoy creating a warm, safe and judgment-free place to share. I look forward to working with you!

More About Lauren
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who graduated with an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliance University. I have a B.A. in accounting from Baruch College. I've been invested in my local church, serving in various capacities, and am the director of the teen ministry in my national church organization. It was through this experience that I developed a love for helping others.
I am a native New Yorker and married with two children. I love spending time with my family and take joy in supporting my husband, who serves in ministry and caring for our two children. In my spare time, I love to sing, plan parties, and decorate cakes.
I live by the powerful lyrics of the famous Mahalia Jackson, “If I can help somebody, as I travel along…my living shall not be in vain.”
I am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and work under the supervision of Michelle S. Park, LMFT.
