Professional statement

Each person has their own lived experience that creates unique issues. As a counselor, Laura treats each client's story as uniquely as the next. She listens, finds themes of dysfunction or discomfort, and then brings them to the client’s attention so she can help them find relief.

Her approach to therapy is holistic and individually tailored to meet clients’ needs. Mental health doesn’t exist in a vacuum, so Laura will look at all the factors contributing to the challenges clients have, including family and cultural values, past experiences, and current events happening in the world. By using an insight-oriented therapeutic approach, clients learn not just "how" to cope, but also, why these thoughts/behaviors started occurring.

Healing involves awareness of the mind, body, and spirit to create the most effective results. Laura enjoys combining narrative therapy, internal family systems, and holistic care to provide each client with the best help.


Message to clients

Authenticity is central to what I do. If it works for you, I may cuss as a form of expression. I’ll lovingly call you on your BS and have an honest conversation about your barriers to success. Expect me to integrate (my) self strategically. If I can't bring all of me to the table, how can I expect you to? My goal is to create a vulnerable space for healing.
