Hello, I am Larry Laehn. I currently live in Milton Wisconsin and grew up in the Fox Cities area. I was adopted into my family at age of two weeks. I have a life-long challenge with Charcot-Marie- Tooth Disease and have used a wheelchair for mobility for many years.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Substance Abuse Counselor in Wisconsin. I also have provided Employee Assistance Program services. My 25 years of counseling practice has been in both outpatient clinical and in private practice settings.
My educational background includes an Associate in Finance , a Bachelor in Business Administration, a Masters in Management and a Masters in Education-Community Counseling. I am also an active Director and member of several not-for-profit organizations.
My therapy focuses on helping people find self-love and then using that state of mind/ body to tackle the issues that are holding them back in life. I use integrative medicine knowledge to address behavioral/ mental/ health challenges.
Problems faced by people are very often really challenges that are waiting to be solved. God does not create junk and each of us has value and untapped capabilities within us.
I would be honored to help you start or restart your therapy journey !

Larry is awesome. He's the kindest person and he's good at what he does, plus he likes old cars.

Larry is a wonderful listener and has a wealth of knowledge on a large variety of topics. Throughout the time Larry and I met, I was always confident that whatever had been weighing on my mind would soon be at ease. I would definitely recommend Larry to anyone who may have cold feet about starting their mental health journey as he is a fantastic, caring resource as well as a great person to talk to.

Larry Laehn is a special guy. Through over a year of counseling, he guided me through many deep-rooted issues with calmness, compassion, faith, optimism, and encouragement. Having adult children my own age, he became like a father figure to me. Having worked in various career fields, he brings a well-rounded understanding of real-world experiences. I've counseled with many different people through the years and was looking for the right fit. Larry was the one.

Larry is one of the warmest, caring and easy to talk to human beings I’ve ever met. I truly felt like I had someone in my corner who had no vested interest other than seeing me happy. I looked forward to seeing him every week even when everything was going great. He was extremely knowledgeable and was eager to share up to date research he’d found while trying to be the best therapist he could. I would recommend his services to anyone. I’m so grateful to have met him and had him in my life.
