Get to know Health Psychologist Dr. Lauren Gorog, who serves patients in Denver, Colorado.

Psychology includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feeling and thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope. Health psychologists explore factors that affect an individual’s well-being, including biological, psychological, and social impacts. They study the various reactions of individuals when diagnosed with a particular disease, as well as factors that affect their treatment choices. They assist patients through chronic disease care, such as diabetes or substance abuse, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Her goal is to develop a safe, therapeutic environment so that each patient can feel most comfortable to engage in their treatment.
