Lauren Duff, MA

Doctoral Intern

[ she/her ]

What do you most look forward to about the work you do?

I look forward to seeing my clients grow and thrive. Getting to witness the progress they make is the best part.

What do you most value about the work you do?

Working with littles, I value the importance of early intervention and am excited to provide supports early on while they are still growing and developing.

What is something clients might never guess about you?

I am a major horror movie fan! I love watching scary movies.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be an author/writer as a kid, which definitely might come in handy for completing the paperwork required as a psychologist!

Hello! I am currently a clinical psychology doctoral student with JFK at National University. I am now completing my clinical internship with the Colorado Center for Assessment and Counseling, where I work with children and families.

I was born and raised in California, where I also obtained my Bachelor of Science in psychology from San Jose State University and my Masters in psychology through National University. I have had the opportunity to train in various settings within the Bay Area, including community mental health centers and inpatient hospitals. I have also worked extensively with neurodiverse populations, specifically young clients on the autism spectrum through ABA therapy, counseling, and testing.

I truly love getting to see my young clients grow and thrive through our work together, and providing support to families during their challenging times. In my free time I love to read, spend time with my friends and family, and watch plenty of scary movies!
