Evoke Therapy Programs recently announced the promotion of Lauren Roberts, MS, LPC, as the new Clinical Director of its Cascades location, in Bend, OR.
Roberts has been with Evoke since 2006. She began as a field staff and then moved into the role of the assistant therapist while earning her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. In 2010 she became a primary therapist with Evoke.
“Lauren has an extensive history of working in the field of wilderness therapy, serving in a variety of roles over the last decade,” says Dr. Matt Hoag, an Evoke owner and clinical director of Evoke Entrada. “Her caring and gifted therapeutic approach made her an ideal fit to step into being clinical director. Lauren brings a balanced and clinically sophisticated approach to the team that will support other clinicians well. I am excited to see how she molds the clinical team moving forward.”
Roberts will continue to work with young adults in the Cascades program while assuming her new role. Her background in trauma-informed therapy, yoga, mindfulness, and her straightforward, compassionate approach will serve both her clients and fellow therapists well.
“I am thrilled to be in the role of Clinical Director at Evoke,” she says. “I am especially inspired to work as a clinical supervisor for fellow therapists and help them grow and learn about themselves and deepen the work they do as clinicians. Evoke is a program that is always evolving and I am excited to be part of the team and its leadership.”
