Dr. Lauren Chase

Counselor/Therapist, PhD, LCMHC, NCC, BC-TMH
I use the phrase “climbing mountains” to discuss big challenges we must overcome. I also like recognizing the smaller challenges we face daily and how we overcome them. The name “Climbing Hills Counseling” represents my passion for supporting women in the small (and big) life challenges they might face. Hi, I am Dr. Lauren Chase, the founder of Climbing Hills Counseling. I help high-achieving women and girls raise their self-esteem, overcome anxiety and self-doubt, and reach their full potential. Come sit down on your favorite chair, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let’s talk about the stress with work, friends, school, or relationships you have been experiencing. Balancing multiple roles and responsibilities can be so exhausting! Whether you are in your favorite workout leggings or business casual trousers, we can work together towards your goals. As a fellow beautifully anxious person, I understand what it is like to exist in constant survival mode until the next challenge and not enjoying your accomplishments because it is hard to feel “good enough.” Let’s work together to fight that anxiety, people-pleasing, and that bully in your head telling you that you’re just not “enough.” I believe that you can overcome your challenges and be your true self, but sometimes we need a little guidance and push up the hill. Once we understand, “how” and “why” we do what we do, we can become brave enough to break these patterns and start living life differently. I believe in approachability, authenticity, and empowerment in the counseling process. Feel comfortable coming as you are. Bring your whole self to the session. Throughout the counseling process, you will feel empowered to work towards those goals you have been pushing to the side.

I’m different than most therapists out there. What makes therapy with me different? Well in order to understand that, let me tell you the quick story of why I became a therapist. After graduating from college, I felt lost. I bounced from job to job, but struggled to find my true passion in life. I was scared I would never find what I was supposed to do in life and this caused me intense anxiety. I didn’t feel like myself. My family and friends were really concerned about me because I stopped laughing all the time and instead I wanted to stay home and avoid people. I kept trying to keep my thoughts positive, but I found that when working in a toxic work environment it was hard to keep my thoughts positive. Instead I would find myself checking my heart rate, having feelings like I want to pass out, and wanting to RUN to my car to get home ASAP. These emotions were exhausting and draining. My mom was the one who told me that I really needed to go see a counselor to talk about what was going on with me, since I was constantly irritable and never happy. I struggled with the idea of having to call to set up an appointment. I thought to myself… “A therapist won’t understand me and she will just judge me!” After struggling for a couple more weeks with complete misery, I could no longer live with so much anxiety anymore and I made the call to set up my initial appointment. On my way to the appointment, I almost had a panic attack in the car. I was crying the whole way there so scared of what she might think or say. Once I arrived, I sat in my car for a few minutes, but decided I needed to go into the office. I was breathing so hard that I was afraid I was about to have a panic attack. After checking in with the front desk, I had to get some water and sit down while trying to make myself relax. Once I sat down in her office, she was the most genuine person I have ever met. Therapy was nothing like I had expected. She helped to make me feel accepted and to understand that my emotions are important. She helped me to understand that my emotions help to guide me in life, but when they become so intense they become ineffective. The more I understood what emotions I was feeling such as sadness, upset, frustrated, angry, irritated, mad, resentful, and embarrassed, the more I realized there were so many things I didn’t know about MYSELF or really didn’t want to admit to myself. I attended therapy weekly for several months and began to identifying that the job I was working was NOT what I wanted to do for a living AND not where my TRUE PASSION was in life. I decided that I could no longer continue to live in this state of HIGH INTENSE ANXIETY. I knew that my mental health was first priority. I found the experience to be the complete OPPOSITE of what I expected it to be. I expected judgement but instead she gave grace, compassion, and empathy. She helped to ask me questions which caused me to be real with myself in what I truly wanted from life – HAPPINESS, COMPASSION, PEACE, LAUGHTER, AND EMPATHY FOR OTHERS. I realized that by going to counseling personally, I wanted to become a counselor so that I could help others in their personal struggles and for them to know someone is there to walk with them through this thing called life.

We will work together to help you make positive changes to your life—healthier, more stable, productive and fulfilling! With each of my clients, I work to build a relationship based in trust and authenticity where you can feel both safe and challenged—safe knowing you can talk openly and will be heard and understood, not judged, but also challenged to make the changes you want to make. Making those changes is more likely when you find a therapist who is empathetic—someone with whom you can connect and trust. Your full potential is always within reach and a therapeutic relationship based in sincere, empathetic, and authentic dialogue is healing. Call me today for a free, phone consultation and get started on a better and brighter present and future.
