Hello, I'm Laura! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Registered Play Therapist and a National Certified Counselor. I graduated with a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling in 2012 but the focus of my work experience has been with individuals, families and couples equally. I have worked in a group home, in office settings and I have also provided in-home counseling during the past few years. My hope is that whatever life situation you are facing, I can provide an open heart and a counseling relationship built on respect and trust.
I have experience working with survivors of trauma and abuse, individuals with depression, stress and anxiety, as well as couples with relationship distress. When working with survivors of trauma, I use a technique called Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use other techniques as well, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy when working with depression and anxiety, and systems theory when working with couples and families. My style of counseling is accepting, understanding and encouraging.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Parenting issues
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Laura is knowledgeable and empathetic
Laura has been great responding promptly, offering good ideas and suggestions. She is inquisitive to help me achieve my goals.
Laura's methods - mainly CBT focussed - have been practical, easy to integrate into my life, and have helped me better manager issues that have been plaguing me for years. She is responsive, intuitive, and has pushed me to dig deeply within myself to uproot the primary causes of my problems. She gives you tools to see the world in a neutral or positive light, away from dysfunctional and destructive thoughts and attitudes. I can't recommend her more highly.
I have only been counseling with Laura for 2 weeks and her help has already been so beneficial to me. I appreciate all that she does for me.
Laura is very understanding and great at listening to what I'm going through, asking questions and making suggestions to help. Through my sessions I am a better person today and I owe it to her.
So far Dr. Angers has shown an amazing open heart, open mind, and kindness. I recommend her highly.
I feel very comfortable with Laura. She is encouraging and understanding, and asks helpful questions to get me to think about where my feelings and reactions could be coming from. I have had a complete turn around with our sessions, and look forward to talking to her so I can update her on my week. Often times things come up that I didn't even realize needed talking about. I leave our sessions with sense of relief.
It has only been two weeks, but so far so good. I have been so happy with my service that I have felt open sharing my experiences with friends and sharing some insights I have discovered after working with her. Thanks.
I really like her. She listens to me and gives me a good amount of information to work with. She let's me be independent as well as be their when I need her.
We absolutely love Laura, she's very kind, understanding and we feel very comfortable to share our life problems with her, my husband and i are actually beginning to communicate and work together through our issues. Thank you Laura for all you do!
Laura asks very insightful questions that get to the root of your problems, and then works with you to help you fix them. She listens and understands and is a big help during rough times.
