She/Her/HersLicensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Laura's (she/her) goals as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients to be their authentic selves without worries of being judged or criticized. She can help to sort through the various ways in which lived experiences can impact one's overall well being - whether it is trauma/c-ptsd, anxiety & depression, self esteem, LGBTQIA+, racial/cultural/societal issues, relationship challenges, job dissatisfaction or whatever struggles/circumstances you're experiencing. She is open about having ADHD, and intimately understands what it is like to be neurodivergent in a world that favors being neurotypical. Laura uses a trauma informed lens and person-centered approach to create a welcoming place for clients to feel seen, heard, and understood - perhaps for the first time.
Laura earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University (Cambridge, MA) and has worked with a variety of populations. Prior to starting her own private practice, Laura worked with teenagers as a counselor in various middle and high schools, and worked with both adolescents and adults in community mental health agencies across Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
