nCenter Bio Photo for Lauren Katz

Lauren Katz, MSSW

I’m Lauren Katz and I love connecting with others in the sharing of their stories.  I am a transracial adoptee born in Bolivia and raised in a primarily Italian family in Northern New Jersey.  I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree from Mount Holyoke College in 2007.  I then served a year in Americorps’ City Year-New York.  I spent a year leading a team through full-time community service in an elementary school in Harlem.  Before enrolling in graduate school, I worked with pregnant and parenting teens in a foster care group home. I earned my Master’s of Science in Social Work in 2011 from Columbia School of Social Work in New York, NY.   I returned to working in the group home where I supported parenting education, breastfeeding education and coordinated volunteer birth doula services.  In 2014, we moved our family to Bozeman, MT.  I have had the privilege of working in various schools both in Livingston and Bozeman as a Comprehensive School and Community Treatment (CSCT) program therapist as well as a Safe-ti (School and Family Engagement – Trauma Informed) counselor

My education and experiences have supported my ability in working primarily with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma.  I strive to see as much of a whole picture as possible.  Especially as a parent, I understand that children are one piece in a much bigger puzzle.  Adults can also carry their childhood trauma and lived experiences in them which can come out sideways when least expected or welcome.  I am always learning from my clients and their families and it’s my hope they feel heard, seen, and supported.

My husband and I have three children who teach us daily about enjoying the simple things such as hot cocoa after sledding.  I love dogs, coffee, tea, knitting, and crocheting.

Christalie Kuglin, MS, P-LCPC

I am a Pre-Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (PLCPC) with a Masters of Art in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Southern New Hampshire University. As a native Montanan, I attended Montana State University, graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Applied Psychology with a minor in Human Development and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in 2018. My overall goal for counseling is to aid clients in reaching their full potential in life by viewing experiences holistically. I see counseling as a collaborative process, and hold respect for an individual’s autonomy.

Heidi Laug, LCPC

I’m Heidi Laug and I earned my Master’s degree in School Counseling in 2008 from Western Michigan University. After graduation, I worked for a year as a K8 school counselor in a rural Montana community before moving to Bozeman in 2010. I then worked for a Comprehensive School and Community Treatment program in two elementary schools for four years. In 2014, I started working part-time for the nCenter in Belgrade. During that time, I switched to a different counseling position in the Bozeman School District working as a Safe-ti (School and Family Engagement – Trauma Informed) therapist at both the elementary and middle school levels.

My theoretical orientation is person-centered therapy focusing on strong interpersonal relationships that promote a sense of safety and acceptance. I work to understand the needs of individuals and support them to recognize their strengths and ways to empower themselves.

I was born and raised in a small town on the hi-line in Montana. I graduated from Havre High School in 2004 and moved to Bozeman to work full time in business management.

Nutritionists

Candice Vann, RD, LN, CLC

My passion for nutrition and a healthy lifestyle began at an early age and has driven me throughout my life. Desiring to truly understand how food can be your best medicine, I studied the nutritional sciences in college, pursued a dietetic internship after graduation, and then trained in a clinical setting to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Since then, I have kept current with courses and seminars on healthy lifestyles and nutritional interventions for chronic conditions.

Food choices are a key factor in achieving wellness. Throughout my career, I have been applying the most current nutrition medical therapy to help my clients and to counsel them in health-promoting choices.

Engineer

Claud Matney, PE

Neurofeedback Engineer and Information Technology Administrator

I am a registered professional engineer in the state of Montana and the state of Texas. I have a B.S. in electrical engineering and an M.S. in civil and environmental engineering. My background in electrical engineering makes the Rife, Nogier, and Solfeggio frequencies employed in neurotherapy particularly interesting to me. I see the results that clients get from neurotherapy, and it is fascinating to me to see the practical application of frequencies, harmonics, and modulation in the healing process. Keeping voltages within safe milliamp ranges we see positive results in cognitive efficiency, mood, and emotional regulation. I started out as a HAM radio operator in 1960…and now I’m known as the “Granddaddy” at the nCenter!
