My name is Lauren Silvers and I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Washington. I provide psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Specifically, my practice focuses on childhood behavioral problems including aggression, poor interpersonal skills, disobedience, hyperactivity and impulsivity. I treat families undergoing significant transitions (i.e., parental divorce, death, presence of a new child, etc.) and also have a great deal of experience treating foster and adopted children and their families. I enjoy collaborating with parents and developing strategies to improve a child’s behavior and emotional health whereby achieving greater family harmony.
My theoretical approach to therapy is integrative; meaning that I will choose the appropriate treatment modality based on the specific needs of my patient. Specifically, I utilize cognitive-behavioral, family systems, object relations, and interpersonal theories to guide my practice.
I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Seattle Pacific University, an APA-accredited institution. I completed a pre-doctoral internship at Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland working with underprivileged families. Additionally, my clinical experience includes working with children and parents at the University of Washington Parenting Clinic. I have been trained in many empirically-based treatments and use an evidenced-based approach in treating my patients. This means that I use current, research-validated techniques to meet the needs of my patients.
