Bumble BLS was founded in 2019 by child and adolescent mental health therapist Lauren Stockly. When Lauren began using EMDR therapy with her clients, she was amazed at the powerful healing effects of bilateral stimulation. However, she wanted a product that children could use while playing. This need within her own therapeutic practice sparked the idea for Bumble BLS.
As a therapist, Lauren has nearly 10 years of experience. After earning her MSW from UCLA, she went on to become certified as a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S) and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist (ECMHS). Her practice integrates Play Therapy and Mindfulness with a range of insight-oriented and evidence-based techniques. In addition to her practice, Lauren serves on the California Association for Play Therapy’s Executive Board and runs the popular blog CreativePlayTherapist.com. She is currently getting ready to publish her first therapeutic children’s book, “Be Mindful of Monsters.”
