Laura is absolutely amazing. She is always so insightful, and really makes me feel like it’s such a safe space. I’ve been with her for almost 2 years now, and she has just helped me so much navigate through my hardships, troubles and life changes. She also is so fantastic with scheduling, and Is so great about working with my weird hospital schedule. 11/10, for sure.
