Professional statement

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.


Message to clients

I'm glad you found your way to my page! I love my job and it is such a privilege to be trusted by my clients and to learn about their lives, thoughts, and experiences. I see the therapist-client dynamic as a collaborative relationship of two people working towards creating change, growth, acceptance or whatever your goals may be.

I'm a therapist who has had numerous therapists over the past 20+ years, and I really understand how daunting it can sometimes be to find a counselor (cost, insurance, time etc). I truly believe in the importance of finding someone who feels like a fit and who you like the overall vibe/energy/personality - as that helps set the groundwork to be open & honest - and most importantly, yourself! I hope I am that person for you (but if not, I will try to help find someone who is)!

Please send me a note with some brief information on how you've been feeling and/or what you've been experiencing recently in your life, and we can hopefully schedule an intake meeting. l also have a 12 year old therapy dog, Jemma, who joins me at my office for in-person sessions.
