About Me

Welcome! I'm glad you're here. My name is Laura, and I am a professional mental health counselor, behavioral scientist, and counselor educator. Day to day, I love to work with clients across the lifespan from various diverse populations. I take great pride in approaching care from a person-centered approach. This means that I work to understand your world, see it as you do, and walk with you to navigate the season that you are in. Often, I meet people in the most painful, lonely seasons of their life, and I find that the relationship we build together is instrumental in beginning to heal wounds, hold and new. I am passionate about social justice and diversity, and work hard to understand and witness the varying identities that people hold, most notably oppressed identities. If you are looking for a non-judgmental, deeply empathic counselor to witness your struggles and triumphs and walk with you as you get closer to the person that you want to be and life that you want to live, I may be a good fit for you.

Laura is phenomenal. Her expertise and knowledge is indubitable. I feel and see the improvements in my physical and mental well-being within 3 months of starting therapy. Thanks, Laura, for equipping me with the tools needed to start believing in myself.

Laura has been my guardian angel. I reached out in a tough space and she really helped me get back on my feet and learn about myself in the therapeutic way I needed. She’s professional, respectful, funny, and makes you feel comfortable. She makes therapy easy, which is the most difficult thing to do. I’m so grateful for her and Better Help.

I have been working with Laura for a little while now and it fills me with deep gratitude that I have her in my life. After every conversation with her, I feel so much better and empowered, inspired to be even more gentle and understanding with myself. She is very reliable, compassionate and so smart - always knowing what to say and what question to ask, guiding me well on my journey. Her calmness and enthusiasm shine through brightly, seeing current needs and adapting to what's most important to talk about as well. Making it so much easier to re-learn how to trust the world. So thankful, and much love!

I would recommend Laura to anyone. She is highly compassionate, present, engaged and attuned. Her clinical grasp and ability to immediately zero in and understand you is matched only by her authenticity, warmth and empathy. I could not feel more helped by her and can’t recommend her enough!

I feel that Laura really understands me and empathizes with me while also providing me with the feedback I need

Laura Capasso is a very understanding and caring counselor. She helps you talk through what you are feeling and is able to comfortably prompt you to further talk about what is necessary. She gives the best guidance and support. By far, Laura is one of the kindest people I have met. The worksheets she also provides are very beneficial as they are tailored to your needs. Not only does Laura talk to you during your sessions but also during the week! If you post in your journal you most likely will receive feedback based on what you have written. She truly is helping me find my inner peace.

Laura is a wonderful counselor. She is empathetic and insightful in her sessions. I feel safe and comfortable speaking with her. Many therapists throw labels on issues but Laura makes me feel so normal without belittling my experiences in any way. I could not recommend her services enough.

Laura is extremely kind and supportive. From the beginning she has validated my concerns and always lends an empathetic ear. She also has a great way of saying the right thing at the right time- sometimes things I’ve not even thought of but really ring true. I’d absolutely recommend her. Thanks so much, Laura!

Laura is great. I've only had two sessions with her so far, but she has really got me thinking about things I hadn't before and making connections about all sorts of things. She is helpful, kind and caring and really puts me at ease when opening up about things. I'm so glad I was matched to her and would definitely recommend her and Better Help to anyone who needs therapy!
