About me

Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the St. Louis, Missouri area with 10+ years of clinical experience. I grew up in the St. Louis area and my family and I moved back here in January after 17 years away for my undergraduate (CMSU/UCM) and graduate studies (UMKC), both in social work. I have clinical background with refugee families, counseling for children and families in the foster and reunification settings, as a day-treatment counselor with K-6th graders, outpatient and in-home therapy for all ages and backgrounds.
I strive to be a safe place for you and your loved ones. I have experience in Trauma-Informed care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) based therapy, Mindfulness based therapies, and more for ages 5 and up. My areas of specialty are mood disorders, trauma/PTSD, grief and loss, ADHD/ADD, sensory processing challenges, parenting children with special needs, gender and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ+) identity.
My goal is to meet you where you are at in your life journey and to empower you to make your changes and goals a sustaining reality.

Laura is very kind, open-minded, and cool! She helps me a lot and has great insights. I like that she makes therapy interactive. She is a great therapist for neurodivergent people with trauma.

Starting therapy was the best thing I’ve done. Laura is supportive, and always offers additional help/insight. I feel as if she truly cares about me which is hard to find in therapy these days

Laura is an amazing therapist who understood me from the very first session. She’s provided so many tools to help with my issues and my life has drastically improved since starting therapy.

I love my therapist but I have been having so much trouble getting on your site. I finally was able to get on today, but another week has gone by.

Super good at listening to and thinking in different ways. I am not the best with words and explaining stuff so it’s nice to still be understood
