My name is Laura. A poet and writer named Bukowski stated that "Not everything that weighs you down is yours to carry". There are times when we need to distinguish the difference.
I am a licensed counselor in the state of Florida. I received my undergraduate degree at Boston College and a Master Degree in Social Work, at Florida International University. For the past 21 years I have served the Youth, Adults and Seniors in supporting their mental health. Focus areas have included, depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, and interpersonal relationships.
I achieve results by using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Care. My primary therapeutic orientation is Client Centered and Solution Focused. I believe that individuals want to grow and evolve, but “life” has a way of growing individuals at a different pace than desired. However, once individuals get into a Solution Focused stance, the anxiety of the situation tends to diminish enough, so people can work on the problem. What a great way to deal with a situation that seems insurmountable.
I am a counselor with a solid reputation that shows authentic concern for individuals and the outcome of their decisions. Protecting an individual’s privacy is of the utmost importance to me and safety is a priority. I will help individuals to gain insight into the problem and creatively develop a plan with obtainable goals.

This experience was a difficult step to take. A step I knew I needed to take, but refused it for most of my life. However, it has proven to be worthwhile and one of the best decisions that I've ever made! Dr. Imbriale is as good as advertised, and even that sells her short. So thankful for her patience and understanding. She has given me a clearer, more defined view of my life. I used to live in matte, now I am beginning to live in color. Thank you Dr. Imbriale!!!
Laura is kind, insightful, and has many tools in her toolbox. She has provided and insight that I've never received from other counselors and I can already tell that I'll be able to use what she's teaching me for years to come.
She is kind person and very supportive!
Laura is great!
Laura is exceptionally knowledgable. Do everything she asks for because she is a keeper.
