Laura Pelton-Sweet


About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who is blessed to love my work. Using creative expression and exploratory conversation, I have (since 2006) had the honor of witnessing my clients' personal, relational, and professional growth. I have been licensed to practice counseling in Massachusetts since 2013, and was previously licensed in Texas.

Clients who respond well to me are often learning to cope with and heal challenges related to: anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, self-esteem and confidence, relationship concerns, career exploration and life transition, grief/loss, and issues specific to women. I enjoy making use of mindfulness based approaches and therapeutic creative expression with clients of all ages and backgrounds during a variety of life transitions.

Written by G.I. on Oct 01, 2020 after counseling with Laura for 2 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Laura was exactly everything I needed. She is calm, kind and empathetic. She listens to me and really understands and supports my goals. I feel so fortunate to have been matched with Laura. She is the best therapist I have ever worked with.
