Hello and welcome! My name is Lauren Hasha, and I’m a writer and mental health therapist + coach living in Portland, Oregon.

I am open about my own experience with depression and anxiety. After a 5-year career in sales and marketing, I went back to school in 2012 to help other people the way my therapists have helped me. I know firsthand that the strong, empowered versions of ourselves can be buried underneath a lot of bullsh*t: toxic and abusive relationships, soul-sucking jobs, negative beliefs about ourselves, our bodies, and our capabilities — the list goes on. Ugh, right? But you’re here. You’re looking for answers. That, in and of itself, a HUGE first step.

With a master’s degree in mental health counseling (2014, University of Louisiana at Lafayette) and extensive training in the field of mental health, I am in my seventh year of working with hundreds of clients facing these issues.

I focus on humor, empathy, your strengths, and (most importantly) solutions. We will talk honestly about your daily routine, habits, beliefs, and behaviors to identify what is holding you back in your life, career, and relationships. You are absolutely capable of overcoming what stands between you and your best and bravest self.

Mental health therapy works. It has saved me many times over: when I’ve been stuck, when I’ve been hopeless, and everywhere in between. I believe in the work I do and in the words I write. If you’re still skeptical, that’s okay too. Schedule a free 10-15 minute phone call with me and we’ll talk about it.

Are you ready for a change? We have some powerful conversations to have and I’m already excited to work with you. Reach out and let’s set up our first session.
