Lauren Caldas, Doctoral Traineee

Hello, I’m Lauren (she/her/hers)! I’m a therapist at Denver Mental Health Collective, but you can also call me a Self-Love Restorer, Anxiety Soother & Individuality Advocate. 

I help people who experience anxiety and depression regain agency in their own lives and learn to love themselves again. My ideal clients are those who have experienced trauma or interpersonal stress that creates feelings of isolation and helplessness. I am here to make you feel supported and hopeful again!

Self-Love Restorer

Do you find it hard to love who you are? Have you lost your connection with yourself? If this sounds like you, I can help you restore your own sense of self-love. I am here to help you understand why certain feelings like guilt, shame or embarrassment may be present and how you can overcome them to find acceptance and joy. Above all, the relationship we have with ourselves is of upmost importance.

Individuality Advocate

Are you figuring out who you truly are? Do you feel lost in the overwhelming mess of developing your own identity? I am here to support you through this important journey! I can provide you the space to explore parts of yourself that feel repressed or lost so that you can eventually feel confident in your individuality. You deserve to find out what makes you, YOU!

Anxiety Soother

Do you struggle with unwanted anxiety that gets in the way of the life you wish to live? Although anxiety is a part of human nature, you do not need to be debilitated by anxiety’s effects. I can assist you to understand your anxiety and manage its negative effects on your relationships, social life and career. It is possible to live a life where your anxiety takes the back seat and you get to drive!



I moved from New York to Denver to explore all of Colorado’s beauty. My free time is usually spent camping, hiking with my dog and discovering new music, especially at my favorite spot, Red Rocks! I also love trying new foods and am often experimenting with new dishes in the kitchen, but those who know me best know that my ultimate life goal is to be on a game show!

Please contact our office today to schedule a free phone consultation. During this time our Client Care Coordinator can talk more about what’s going on and how I can help you feel better.
