Dr. Lauren D. Pitts, EdD, LMFT

  Marriage & Family Therapist | Sports Mental Health Empowerment Coach 


          Dr. Lauren D. Pitts is a Sports Mental Health Empowerment Coach and a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. Dr. Pitts’ love for sports coupled with a bleeding heart for those who play them began at an incredibly young age. Born into a large family of sports lovers and scholar-athletes, Dr. Pitts’ love grew and greatly contributed to her own competitive spirit. Beyond cheerleading, Dr. Pitts did not engage in competitive play but did become a loyal and at times ferocious fan.

          With intimate connections to scholar-athletes her entire life, it was in high school that she became intrigued by the toll competitive play took on the mental health of scholar and professional athletes. Athletes’ mental health was further compromised by unhealthy environmental conditions that often led to engagement in unhealthy and risky behaviors. Additionally, it quickly became apparent that the challenges athletes faced, also impacted their families and communities.

          Dr. Pitts is particularly passionate about being an integral part of a healing and hope trajectory for ethnic minority scholar and professional athletes and their families. One size does not fit all and contributing to the holistic wellbeing of athletes and their families requires an understanding of different experiences. Dr. Pitts is a firsthand witness of the multi-generational, systemic loss and devastation caused to families because of domestic violence, mental illness, substance abuse, gun violence, poverty, and the overall breakdown of the nuclear family. Dr. Pitts' tumultuous life serves as a compass guiding her to turn the adversities of her life into steppingstones for others.

           Dr. Pitts earned a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Management and a master’s degree in Couple, Marriage, and Family Therapy each from Drexel University. She earned a bachelor's in Organizational Management from HBCU Edward Waters College and an associate degree in Hotel/Restaurant Management from Johnson & Wales University. Dr. Pitts has received numerous awards and recognition for her work in the areas of empowerment, education, community activism, clinical excellence, social justice, and equality. Dr. Pitts serves the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Institute of International Education as a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador and is also a Fulbright Specialist Roster member.
