Welcome to the studio!
Here at LA Counseling Studio, the focus is on YOU. Helping YOU establish and achieve your goals in a non-judgmental, realistic way.
Our mission is to provide a non-judgmental, confidential space, provide compassionate, and evidence based therapy services to individuals seeking growth, healing, and overall well being. A space for individuals to explore, improve their sexual health, their relationships, and to create a safe and supportive environment where clients feel heard and understood, as well as to empower them to reach their full potential. I strive to create an inclusive environment for all genders, orientations, and relationship styles. I am dedicated to promoting mental health, sexual health, and wellness.
My name is Lauren Abasheva (Abba-Sha-Vah). I am a survivor. I identify as an alley, and my pronouns are (She/Her). Welcome to my studio!

I focus on helping individuals resolve current problems. To focus on TODAY. It’s no about revisiting the past, but understanding how it can/how it is affecting the now, and making the changes you need to move forward. My style of therapy is proactive, direct without being unkind, and encouraging without pressuring. I utilize evidence based practice therapies.
