Laura Pelton-Sweet


About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional 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.

Laura is extremely calm and easy going. This makes her very easy to talk to.

Laura is amazing. I have had 2 therapist before and she really takes the time to listen to what I’m saying and helps me see where I can fix a problem or how to over come the emotion I’m feeling. She sends me amazing examples and has given me more ways to deal with stress and feeling sad then I’ve ever been given before. She sends me awesome reading material that I actually want to read because she has taken the time to highlight why I should read it, not just handing me something and saying go read this. I feel like she is actually listening to my feelings and lets me express my feelings and always has a way of helping me find the words when I can’t. She doesn’t judge and and shows so much empathy, you can tell she really cares. She celebrates my highs as if we’ve known each other a long time and is a comforting voice in the lows.

I had never had therapy before and was a little apprehensive of it. Laura was incredible she made me feel comfortable and gave me many types of tools to help with my anxiety. So glad I did this

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.
