About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Indiana and Kentucky. I have worked in the helping profession for over 25 years, and I have an MSW and a PhD in social work. You are probably exploring this site because you are concerned or worried about something or know someone who is. Every one needs help at some point in their life. You are to be commended for taking this step!

I often work with adults returning to college who lack confidence and feel overwhelmed. I also work with college students who have learning disabilities and are making the transition from high school to college. I have many years of experience working with people who have mental health issues and with their families, single parents, and caregivers.

I use primarily cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing approaches. I believe you are the expert of your own life. My approach to therapy is to help you feel more in control of your life and improve the situation that is troubling you. I respect the challenges you are facing. We can work together to help you explore a new path forward and overcome those challenges.

I love working with Laura. She is warm and positive. She teaches me to rethink my perspective and guides me in seeing things in a different way. She is sympathetic and kind. I am so glad I found her.

Laura is a wonderful counselor, who is a great listener, pays close attention to the things I've said, and offers me great points of reflection. She is very kind, patient, and giving. I am extremely glad to have had Laura's support throughout this difficult year.

Laura always listens without judgement, with a kind and open heart. I am very thankful to have been paired with her. I feel that she is extremely easy to talk to, and this was a quality I had really hoped for from a therapist. After working with her for only a few weeks, I have improved tremendously with her help. I would recommend her to anyone. She is a positively thoughtful person. Her suggestions help me think of things I would have never been able to realize on my own. I am so thankful to have the access to her, and this app.
