Hello and welcome to North Potomac Therapy! My name is Lauren Farago and I am a nationally certified counselor and licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Maryland. I received my master’s training in counseling from Johns Hopkins University and have experience working with children, families, couples, and adults in individual and group outpatient settings.
I am passionate about helping clients alleviate symptoms of anxiety so they can lead more productive, peaceful lives. I approach therapy from a humanistic prospective, encouraging clients to achieve personal goals using person-centered techniques.
In our initial sessions together, I work to gain an understanding of your upbringing and development. Moving forward, I take a client-centered focus and work with you to address problems you are presently facing through a historical lense. We will work together to identify patterns that may be impacting your ability to achieve happiness and wellness. We also address ambiguity toward change and evaluate barriers that may be preventing you from reaching your goals.
I believe that the foundation for success is a positive therapeutic relationship and I can’t wait to work together. Reach out today for a free phone consultation or to schedule your first visit!

I also offer nutrition coaching and am a NASM certified nutrition coach. Using behavioral techniques, I help clients unlearn negative coping skills like emotional eating and disengage from harmful diet cycling patterns. Reach out today to learn about my nutrition coaching packages and groups!
