Professional statement

Many of Laurel’s clients feel shame, overwhelm and an ongoing sense of disconnection from life, from others, and from their authentic selves. They get through daily life by striving, and overthinking leaves them feeling exhausted and discouraged. Sometimes it’s difficult for Laurel’s clients to feel comfortable enough in their own skins to create lasting and fulfilling relationships. Laurel helps clients slow down, accept themselves and their experiences fully and learn to live life from a deep sense of self love and self trust that naturally supports happiness and connection.

Each person's challenges make sense 'in-context.' Laurel’s strengths-based approach to therapy begins with mindful awareness of patterns of thought that interfere with peace and life-balance. Through attention to the present moment, repetitive thought patterns arise and can be fully witnessed, as can the corresponding body contractions. Laurel weaves somatic approaches, mindful awareness and a person's unique strengths together to assist each client in reconnecting with the energy that lies trapped beneath negative patterns that are difficult to see on one's own. She is particularly passionate about helping clients who feel an overall sense of disconnection. Laurel has a specialization in early developmental and relational trauma and has extensive experience working with those experiencing fear and sadness during life transitions.

Laurel earned her Master’s degree from the University of Dayton and completed training in the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM). Her practice welcomes clients of all backgrounds, sexualities, and gender identities. Her goal is to help clients reach a point where they feel connected, joyful, and aligned with their inner selves, regardless of external circumstances.

Laurel Durrett is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the sate of Ohio and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State. Sessions with Laurel are available (currently, virtual-only) throughout Ohio and Washington.


Message to clients

It’s time for you to become the trusted expert on yourself and your life.

When you allow yourself to explore what has operated outside of your conscious awareness, (those thoughts and feelings that have obscured your clarity and siphoned your energy), your sense of trust in yourself grows because you experience yourself facing whatever has been ‘in hiding.’

As awareness of your inner life expands, so does your connection to your deepest held desires and your highest good. Increased connection to your desires and your highest good heightens confidence and increases positive synchronicities and insights (which are the natural result of heightened openness and awareness.)

As your awareness expands and insights increase, connection with your authentic self grows. A positive chain reaction is set in motion; this is a process I call ‘Upward Spiral Awareness.’

If you are curious to begin a process that will reveal the person you hope you are (and fear you are not), then reach out. You're ready.
