Professional statement

Laura's (she/her/hers)goals as a therapist is to create a safe space for clients to share their experiences of trauma, anxiety & depression, self esteem, relationship issues, and a variety of other struggles/circumstances. With compassion, empathy, humor (or attempted humor!), and a listening ear, she can help to sort through the various ways in which life experiences can impact our overall wellbeing. Laura is an ally and inclusive therapist for clients of all races & ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities. She is open about her own ADHD diagnosis - and feels passionately about healing the feelings of shame, blame, guilt, and stigma that learning differences can have on those who are neurodivergent (BUT, as a disclaimer - these feelings are not unique to only those with a learning disability! :) ). 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.

Message to clients

Via empathetic listening, compassion, and some (attempted!) humor too, I encourage clients to share their joys and their struggles, as well as the parts we may keep hidden from others due to being shamed, ignored, or stigmatized. I believe we all want to be seen, heard, validated and understood and I strive to provide a safe space to feel truly listened to and understood. My goal is to guide clients to awareness and a better understanding of the various circumstances, behaviors, and patterns that affect their daily lives and wellbeing. I view the therapist-client dynamic as a collaborative relationship to work towards creating change, growth, acceptance, or whatever your goals may be!

It is a privilege to learn about your lived experiences and is something that I do not take for granted. For years I worked in schools and specialized in teenagers and young adults, but I enjoy working with clients of all ages. Some themes I tend to work with include: anxiety, depression, learning differences and impact on self esteem, LGBTQ+, loved ones of those who struggle with addictions (either past or present), personality disorders, relationship issues, and trauma. If you are thinking about starting therapy, please send me a note and we can hopefully schedule an intake session for you to determine if I feel like a fit for you!
