Loren Watts of Wellspring of Hope Counseling, LLC is a Licensed
Professional Counselor (LPC). She received her Masters of Science
in Counseling from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi with a
double concentration in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and
Marriage and Family Therapy. Her Bachelors was earned from
North Greenville University with a Major in Christian Studies and

Wellspring of Hope Counseling, LLC is Loren's independent, private
practice that services individuals, couples, children, adolescents, and
families through in-person* and telehealth sessions. For individual and family therapy, Loren primarily uses integrative counseling methods from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strengths Based Counseling, and Solution-Focused Counseling. With Couple's Counseling, she draws from Gottman Counseling Principles, the Five Love Languages, and Family Systems Therapy. Loren works with every client to create individualized treatment goals to ensure that every person or family has their unique needs met.
Loren has over 10 years of experience of working with children and families in a variety of settings. Since the beginning of her journey, Loren's main goal has always been building upon the strengths of every individual to support individuals and families in gaining renewed strength, an empowered spirit, and enduring hope. Loren has worked in an Outpatient Christian Counseling organization as a Marriage and Family Therapist, within the Fostering and Adoption Community, as a School-Based Mental Health Counselor, and in a Behavioral Hospital.
Loren recognizes every individual and family has unique needs and diverse strengths to build upon; therefore, her clinical insight is based upon a collaborative relationship to help set and meet goals that meet your specific needs. She believes healing is holistic, meaning that the Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual aspects of a person all intertwine to shape a healthy individual and family. Loren's goal is to help clients overcome life challenges through finding meaning in everyday life, joy in relationship with others, and peace through understanding and processing emotions.
Loren's approach to counseling recognizes that every individual has spiritual aspects to their overall emotional, mental, relational, and physical health. She believes that counseling is more effective when a person's faith and spirituality are incorporated into the counseling journey. She will respect your beliefs and incorporate them into the counseling process. Loren has a true passion for supporting individuals and families through difficult seasons of life that become transformed into testimonies of healing, health, and peace. She combines evidenced-based practices with spiritual components that are driven by compassion for others.
Loren lives with her husband and four children, one son and three daughters. She enjoys going camping, drinking apple cider while reading books, having movie nights with popcorn, and doing crafts with her family. She is an enthusiastic advocate for the foster and adoptive community. Just like with the clients she serves, her life is not what she envisioned it when she began her journey. Even though life can take different paths, stepping back to stay focused on the big picture combined with hard work and perseverance means that the end result of a journey can be more beautiful than originally envisioned. And hope can always lead to healing.
