I am a professional counselor licensed in New Jersey with over 10 years of experience working as a Counselor helping with transitions and fostering growth. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, phase of life, academic concerns, parenting problems, college and career readiness. I also helped many people who have struggled to be their genuine self.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and that everyone has a unique story that shapes and interacts with how they currently live their life. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client empowerment, narrative, systemic and psychoeducational therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am here to help you find direction. It's a journey that may be hard at times, but that's ok, you are ultimately in control and it is okay to be nervous.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Laura has been very helpful so far with helping me manage my anxiety. We have only had a couple sessions so far but I have found it helpful and she asks very thought provoking questions and suggests ways to help.
