Do you feel stressed, worried or anxious? Maybe angry, frustrated, overwhelmed or exhausted? Perhaps you feel desperate for change and believe life can be better, but are not sure how. It can be painful to cope with all these emotions, especially when you feel alone. Asking for help can be scary, but the benefit of receiving support is invaluable. It takes courage to seek change and to ask for help and you’ve already started taking steps on this path.
My intention is to help you recognize your strengths, resilience, skills and resources during this challenging time. For over fifteen years, I have worked with diverse populations including: children, adults, individuals & families addressing various mental health conditions, grief, loss, low self-image, major life events & transitions.
My goal is to provide a safe, supportive, non judgemental environment to process and heal your pain as well as learn healthy ways to cope with life challenges. Let me support and assist you in recognizing your own resilience, discovering your strengths, and using your voice to allow more joy in your life and build a better quality of life.

Laura has a great smile and her demeanor is comforting. She always knows just what to say, is supportive and points out my positive attributes, and areas where I’ve improved. It’s clear that she’s an expert in her field of specialties. Her qualifications as well as her communication; is professional. I look forward to seeing Laura. I’m so glad we were so matched up by the site.

Laura is not only patient and a wonderful listener, she offers suggestions for me to consider as next steps toward healing from traumas I've experienced. She is non-judgmental and makes sharing my story comfortable. I value my time with her and look forward to my sessions as if they are a "spa" for my mind. I've already recommended BetterHelp to a half dozen others!
