There are natural points in our life in which we become aware that in order to move towards a fulfilling life, we must challenge the way we are currently living. In making the commitment to change, we must accept that change is not easy – while also acknowledging that it is absolutely within our reach and is the only thing worth fighting for.

My career and research are focused on the body, mind, and spirit connection. My concentration is in Holistic Mental Health Counseling, and I have expertise in Ayurvedic medicine, Yogic psychology, Hakomi, and herbal medicine. I bring these fields of study together to form a thorough understanding of how to find the way back to balance.

The clients who will benefit most from my services are those ready to commit to creating the life they have always wanted and are willing to make the changes to get it. If that speaks to you, know that my position is to be your support and guide through this process. My approach is rooted in being lovingly attentive and non-judgmental.

I know how hard it is to find a therapist who understands you for who you know yourself to be. I also know how hard it is to figure that out in the first place; for many of us it takes our whole lives to find language for who we are, and that is okay, too. Therapy should be a space where you can be whoever you need to be, in exactly whatever way you need. Let me worry about the rest.

I believe that all clients have the right to a therapist whose style and techniques work for them, and all therapy should be a collaborative process that is client-led. We will work together to find what works specifically for you, to create a space where you can bring your whole self into the room.

Laura is a psychiatric clinical nurse specialist who includes both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology as part of her practice. She has expertise in women’s health drawn from 15 years as a community midwife. Her expertise in the perinatal period was further deepened with a fellowship in infant mental health. Her areas of focus include: depression, anxiety, loss, adjustment, intimacy, sexual health and birth trauma.
Laura enjoys working with a diverse population, from college on as they negotiate life transitions, develop insight into how they have formed relationships and subsequent patterns that they have seen develop over time. Laura believes that therapy can be a powerful space to develop new coping strategies, ways of communicating and healthy life choices. Her approach is psychodynamic, informed by attachment psychotherapy as well as evidence-based approaches such as IPT, CBT, ACT and mindfulness. Psychopharmacology is another tool that Laura draws from in the treatment of mental illness. She has trained and worked at Women and Infants and is skilled in working with the perinatal population as well as others for medication management.

I'm excited to both work with people who have very specific sexuality related goals that they would like support around, and to do general mental health counseling with people who do not want to educate their therapist about a specific part of their sexual and/or gender identity. I work to create a space where people can show up as their full and complicated selves and trust that they will be genuinely cared about. I have specific training around gender diversity including trans and non-binary identities.

As a relational therapist it is central to my work that I develop authentic and healing therapeutic relationships with my clients where they know they are unconditionally cared about, and where they can do challenging and vulnerable relational work in a boundaried and structured environment.

Our therapy program is based in a sex positive philosophy that frames a wide diversity of identities, desires, and sexual behaviors as healthy and normal. We center social justice, personal autonomy, and consent as our guiding values. If this sounds like support that meets your unique self and needs - I'm excited to work with you.

There are many ongoing benefits of mindfully managing sexual health. Mindful management is empowering and proactive by developing and practicing skills that identify what specifically promotes balance and health for each individual, as well as what leads to imbalance. It is an integrative approach that includes a holistic perspective of including body and mind in identifying and cultivating the development of an individual’s authentic sexual self. Practicing mindfulness-based basic tools, for use in accessing information, supports individuals to make informed decisions for more immediate course correction, that is advantageous for short and long-term contentment and well-being.
In therapy, we identify and follow an individual’s personal values and beliefs. We practice mindful exploration of the sexual self and individuals learn about skillful management of personal erotic energy. The experiencing, experimenting, and deepening understanding of one’s authentic sexual self is a conscious and self- respecting process that assesses for health, harm and safety. This process is starkly different from mindlessly and carelessly repeating past expressions of sexuality that might have had included some short-term pleasures, leading to longer-term adverse consequences. Examples of some ways that one’s sexuality can be negatively influenced include; operating from an arousal template that is informed by past trauma, acting out sexual behaviors that induce shame or create disconnection, engaging in sexual experiences that are in conflict with one’s values, or by acting out problematic or compulsive expressions of sexuality.
