Lauren will thoughtfully plumb the depths with you...
Lauren is a lovely collaborator. Through a process of delicate and joyful inquiry they balance my ideas, tone, and voice alongside their own magnificent and clarifying language. Lauren leads me through questions to better understand myself, my work, and the content I am hoping to express.
Lauren will thoughtfully plumb the depths with you, giving you more insight into your humanity, your purpose, and your intention for this life—and the language to say it in.
