"She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It's good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind." - Toni Morrison

About Woman of Rivers

Lauren is that woman and friend. The gatherer... knower, feeler,

and healer. 

She provides spiritual counsel in New Orleans by way of Tulsa, Oklahoma. For a decade personally and five years professionally
 —  as Woman of Rivers  — Lauren practices divination as a tool for self-development, spiritual connection, and intergenerational healing. The purpose work is to relay messages and tools her clients need to walk the path of their purpose with discernment and integrity.

Woman of Rivers is rooted in a long line of healers — rootworkers, psychic dreamers, prayer warriors, card readers, pastors, writers, teachers — whose legacy of service inspire her studies in psychology, spirituality, holistic health, and indigenous approaches to healing. A beloved teacher, Empress Karen Rose, spoke to Lauren’s abilities as flow and her words as a presence that pushes us forward. 

Her work and studies align with her role as an advocate and sounding board for her family, loved ones, and community. It brings her joy to see others connect with their spirituality, bring healing to their ancestry, and tend to their wellbeing.
