About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist. I have a specialization in Gerontology. I am trained in Complex PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy). I have over 18 years of experience. I have worked in all areas from outpatient all the way up to inpatient psychiatric hospitals. I have worked with clients from ages 2 to 92. I have worked with clients on many varied issues including depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, stress, job loss, divorce, addictions, trauma, and abuse. My most fulfilling job prior was working at a residential facility that focused solely on trauma and addictions and their impacts.

My counseling style is warm, direct, honest, caring, and supportive. Therapy can be very challenging and it is hard to break lifetime negative behaviors. I work best with clients who are ready to make the needed changes and are willing to put in the work needed to make the changes. I am by my client's side every step of the way. I utilize worksheets, homework assignments, and send out weekly challenges to my clients on various topics of interest.

The first step is the hardest and you should be very proud of yourself for taking that first step. If you are ready to take the next step and want to reach out to me I would love to work with you.

Written by J.O. on Jun 07, 2021 after therapy with Laura for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and adhd

I really appreciate the time I’ve spent with Laura. At first I was hesitant/ skeptical because I wasn’t sure about the whole doing therapy online thing. But after our first session I was extremely satisfied with the meeting. She did a phenomenal job at listening to me and providing feedback. I loved how she wasn’t afraid to tell me when I was wrong and helped me by challenging my ideas. Not just saying you’re wrong and need to get over it. Instead she helped guide my thoughts into realizing a different opinion/ viewpoint. Overall, I would highly recommend Laura to others.

Work with me!
