About: Lauren Lutz received her masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Drexel University. Here, she completed additional training with the renowned Harry Aponte, contributing to the compassionate and skillful nature of her clinical work. Lauren's undergraduate experience at Messiah College and her involvement with Young Life has shaped the lens in which she sees the world and approaches therapy—she believes in the preeminence of Christ, desires to meet clients where they are in life, and values the impact and resource of community.
As a family systems therapist, Lauren believes that problems are not always inside individuals, but often between them. Just as sin separates us from God, it also separates us from each other. Lauren has a passion to revive love lost between couples and amongst generations in families. Additionally, she thoroughly enjoys those at any age struggling to navigate life cycle transitions. With an engaging approach to sessions, Lauren strives to not only talk about change - but create it - allowing for new empowering experiences.
After coordinating a Family Therapy program at the Keystone Center, where she specialized in working with couples and families who have suffered the effects of drug, alcohol, gambling, and sexual addictions, Lauren moved to central Pennsylvania and has been working on developing Safe Harbor Christian Counseling offices there. She currently teaches as an adjunct professor in the Human Development and Family Science department at Messiah College.
Ephesians 3:20 – "Now, to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever, Amen."
