About Me

Clients often seek out therapy because they are experiencing significant discomfort in their lives. I feel that this discomfort is often a healthy way of letting us know that we may be open to change. Change begins with recognizing our patterns of behaving and relating to others in our lives, and examining patterns of behavior that may not be in our best interest. I think this is best done in a caring and encouraging environment where the client feels heard, respected, and understood. I strive to be client focused and responsive to my client's changing needs during the process.
In my twenty three years of practice, I bring experience in working in many areas including, family and relationship issues, anxiety, coping with stress, divorce, self esteem and parenting issues. I use a variety of approaches that include mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy.
While it may be difficult to find the right therapist to work with at first, I find my warm, empathetic, friendly, straight forward approach helps my clients to work through issues and find peace and purpose within their lives.

Laura has been wonderful to work with. She is kind, understanding, and knows how to be direct without being blunt. She responds to my messages quickly and also checks in on a regular basis. You can tell that Laura truly listens to you and cares about what you are going through.

Laura is simply amazing. She is so spot on with her ability to recognize issues that need to be addressed. She is able to filter out the extraneous details and focus on crucial details. I was extremely skeptical of counseling in general let alone online counseling. I find it very helpful. I am pleasantly surprised at the ease it which I can talk to Laura. And also her words of wisdom.

Laura is absolutely wonderful. She is helpful, compassionate, kind and knowledgable. I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for BetterHelp. I can say without a doubt it was a great investment and I am so grateful that I found it and her!

Laura is an incredible counselor. I've had problems in the past with counselors and never thought I would find one that actually listens to me and helps me come up with solutions to various problems. She's been the best thing to happen for my mental health.
