Professional statement

Laura is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience in helping those impacted by interpersonal violence and relational trauma as well as those contemplating transition decisions in their lives. Many individuals Laura works with are challenged with regulating their emotions and often struggle with their self-esteem and self-worth. This can lead to anxiety, depression, and unhealthy behaviors.

Laura uses a variety of different therapeutic modalities that enable clients to begin on their path to healing and growth. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which is used in many different mental health conditions, is often the foundation for the early stages of therapy. Through CBT, clients learn to identify and reframe distortions: this reframing increases positive feelings and in turn more positive behaviors. In addition to the in-session activities, Laura can provide techniques, tools and body-based activities to assist clients in navigating their daily stressors with the goal of creating a healthier, more vibrant life. Laura helps clients process through the impacts that their pasts have on their present selves and provides an empathetic approach that enables clients to express their feelings in order to move forward in their lives.

As a trauma-trained and culturally-sensitive therapist, Laura strives to provide a safe, nurturing and supportive space for her clients to explore their strengths. She welcomes all inquiries about her background and services and looks forward to hearing from individuals interested in working with her.

Please note: Services are provided through tele-therapy only at this time. If you have not worked with a therapist through video sessions, Laura can help you decide if this approach is right for you.


Message to clients

Taking the first step towards deciding if therapy is right for you is often the hardest part. I am so pleased you are here and looking to find a therapist who can be your partner in helping you become the best version of yourself. I believe that even with the best therapeutic approaches- and there are many- the key to a successful journey is the relationship you and I have. It is a road we will travel on together.

You are the expert in your own life; my role is to help you find your strengths and use them to help shape your sense of self and reach your full potential. I gently guide you in the healing process, but I will not dictate how that happens. You may get to a better place in your life quickly, or it may take several attempts to move forward. I will be with you each step of the way.

I encourage you to reach out to me so that we can learn more about each other. I look forward to hearing from you.
