Lauren Trecosta, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach


Hi, my name is Lauren Trecosta. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor & Life Coach. I work with clients online through one-to-one weekly sessions.

Contact me to Schedule A Free Initial Consultation.

My passion, purpose, and path is to help you become the hero in your life.

A direct and compassionate mirror, I reflect the power, beauty, and possibility of who you are – as well as how you stand in the way of your own becoming.

You are a powerful, valuable, and essential being. My commitment is to resolutely stand for you and the vision you have for your life. In the process, you’ll learn how to stand for yourself as well as create the beliefs, habits, and change necessary to live into your vision.

When you make an unequivocal stand for you, your life, and your vision, positive effects ripple through your life, your family, community, and the world.

You are imperfect and inevitably flawed

— and you are beautiful.  

~ Amy Bloom

What To Expect . . .

I help people breakthrough barriers using their natural gifts and inner strength to achieve a greater vision for their lives. By doing so, we are able to discover the gold nugget hidden in the challenge you are facing.Ultimately, what becomes much clearer through the whole process is the real beauty and strength of you. That both shapes and becomes your new life. I offer a free initial consultation on Skype. This allows us to get to know each other, see if we are a good fit, and decide the best way to meet your goals for happiness and fulfillment.


I earned two Master degrees and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. My Virginia clients typically submit claims to insurance for out-of-network reimbursement.



I worked as a therapist for 20 years in VA. That led me to awaken to my own dreams: traveling with my kids. It is why I became an Online Counselor & Life Coach.



For years, I was a therapist with Military One Source; helping military personnel and their families. Now I donate time to vets and their families through Give An Hour.


I homeschool two of my three children so they can feed their curiosities and grow to their natural bend. I like to use Real Life as curriculum and immersion when possible.


I love to travel. Our year-long cross country trip, Roadschooling in America, is a highlight. Whether exploring parks, caves, or towns, it was memorable and transformative.


I grew up overseas moving every two years. The exposure to many cultures and experiences were helped shape my belief in extraordinary beauty and potential of people.

Happiness begins when are unapologetically and authentically you. ~ Lauren Trecosta

When You Hold Back

We are born with two fears: a fear of falling and a loud noises. Over time we acquire three more: a free of failure, rejection, and the future.

They are well-intended fears; meant to keep us safe. Too safe.

Often they keep us from feeling the very energy that make us feel alive.

When You Are Fully Present

When you are unapologetically and authentically you, you are aware of who you are at your core.

You are able to assert yourself, lovingly stand your ground, and chart your way.

You allow yourself to have a vision that is truly fulfilling and ecstatically yours.

Reach Out To Get Started

When you passionately believe in the possibility for your future, you understand reaching out is the first step.
