Lauren Larson Kidd, BS, MA
My name is Lauren Larson Kidd, B.S., M.A., and I am a third-year graduate student at George Fox University. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Child Studies from Santa Clara University. I have since earned my Master of Arts from George Fox University and am working toward my doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have experience with children and youth in several contexts including as a behavior technician working with children on the autism spectrum and as a youth ministry director mentoring high schoolers. Since beginning my career in clinical psychology, I have worked with a variety of clinical concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, familial relationships, and identity development. My previous training emphasized solution-focused therapy through Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also pair these goal-oriented modalities with an interpersonal approach and attachment theory. At Sundstrom, I provide therapy to children and adolescents as well as conduct assessments for individuals across the lifespan. I am supervised by Dr. Brie Henry-McAllister, PsyD.
In my free time, you might find me going for a run, exploring a new restaurant, baking yummy treats, or playing all-too-complicated board games with my husband!
