Lauren Sankey, MSW, APSW, is a post-graduate therapist trainee and currently working with clients at Catalpa’s Appleton location. She has a specific interest in treating anxiety, depression, and adjustment disorders with clients ages 6 to 18. Lauren approaches clients as though they are the experts of their own lives and experiences – learning from them and working with them individually to identify and ultimately accomplish their goals. She believes everyone has their own strengths and enjoys cultivating a partnership with clients and their families.
She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and obtained her Master’s in Social Work, with an emphasis on mental health, while attending the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. Lauren is certified through the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services as an Advanced Practice Social Worker (CAPSW).
Lauren entered the field of social work, particularly working with children and adolescents, because she likes the concept of early intervention when working through mental health concerns. She believes that learning coping skills and distress tolerance at an early age can lead to positive outcomes in the future.
When not at work, Lauren enjoys yoga, reading, spending time outside, trying new foods and restaurants, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and cat.
