Founder & CEO, Candlelit Therapy

About me

Lauren Elliott is an experienced public health professional, researcher and trained journalist with over 10 years of experience in covering state-level politics, healthcare marketing and community engagement. She had to quickly become an advocate for her well-being after the emergency birth of her son and now dedicates her time to being the much-needed advocate for all moms at a higher risk of complications during pregnancy and after childbirth. She founded Candlelit Therapy to serve as a safe space where Black mothers could receive better behavioral healthcare options, treatment and resources.
