Laura Philpott, LMHC
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State with my Master's in Mental Health Counseling and Addiction. My focus has been on treating Co-occurring addiction and trauma disorders for the last six years. I work with Veterans and civilians dealing with PTSD. I am an evidence based focused therapist and also use Motivational Interviewing to aid in processing barriers to change.
I believe it's important to meet my patients where they are at and to help them reach their goals through compassion, education and providing a non-judgmental environment to explore their past and present experiences. I welcome and encourage family engagement to the extent my patient is comfortable. Therapy is a privilege for me to provide to any patient willing to allow me to join part of their journey. I will provide a safe environment for you to explore, learn and grow in the direction you choose. I am not here to to tell anyone how to live only to reflect and explore the impact your thoughts and emotions have on your life. To be transparent with my patients I do share that when in a video session you will notice that I wear dark glasses to help me with a chronic light sensitivity issues. BetterHelp doesn't allow me to wear these in my photo but it is something I do wear at all time. If you have questions please don't hesitate to ask.

I have recently started therapy and Lauren is my first ever therapist. I was nervous in starting, but Lauren has made the experience so much easier.
I feel very open with her, even though ive only had a couple sessions. Her patience and insight during our discussions has so far helped me gain a better understanding of myself, and in untangling some of my negative and distorted beliefs.

Laura is amazing at what she does and never hesitates to call me out when I need it. She often sees where my struggles are before I do, and gives me the tools I need to improve.
