Let’s just say life is overwhelming. Overwhelming due to moving, career and relationship changes, education, physical/mental health goals… Life Is A LOT. With 15 years of experience as a behaviorist and 4 years as a Licensed Professional Counselor we can work together to break your life into bite sized, manageable pieces.
Being an open minded and approachable person, my goal is to create a comfortable, receptive space for you to explore yourself and the life you have. Using cognitive behavior theories to increase awareness of self, we can work together to identify your strengths and talents and use them more effectively. My background in working with those during major life transitions, such as mental health crisis, homelessness, unhealthy relationships, anxiety, depression and personality disorder, mean that I can roll with you through life’s punches. Together we can break the overwhelmed feelings into understandable pieces, putting them back together into the picture you are looking for.

I was nervous about having an 'assigned' therapist. I didn't need to worry. Laura Hazard is the perfect therapist for what I need. She has a kind and supportive manner, and we've worked through some challenges in a way that delighted me - and helped me process them. I'm even sleeping better. I'm looking forward to the next session. I can't recommend her highly enough.

For the past few months that I've been with BetterHelp, I'm more than grateful that I was paired with Laura. I've seen significant changes in my personal and work life all because I'm able to share with her and implement the strategies we've talked about. Laura really listens to what I have to say and makes sure that I'll be okay before we end our session.
