In just one session with Laura, she was able to help me discover the core reason for an issue I’ve been having for years. Her listening and understanding allowed me to have the breakthrough that I desperately needed, and she is now helping me work on solutions. Thank you, Laura!

I have gained great personal insight from my time with Laura so far. She has a very easy way of identifying different approaches to the challenges I experience, and she does a beautiful job of reminding me that I am not alone. There is always one or two key “a ha’s” from our session that make a measurable difference in my actions, results, and mood. I highly recommend her.

Laura Bickler is a very warm person. I opened up to her easily, and she has been a joy to work with.

She is action driven and her counselling has really helped me with self-awareness. She is structured that her end goal is really is to help me get better and feel better, and understanding also enough to see how I try to pick up myself, one piece at a time. She is competent and her style of counselling has really worked for me.

Work with me!
