Laura was extremely skilled at hearing my concerns and goals for therapy and translating them into an effective and productive session. She is also skilled at structuring sessions to maximize the limited amount of time and offer a balanced approach so positives and strengths are also emphasized rather than exclusively addressing worries, concerns, and negative thoughts. Laura has provided the kind of life advice I was seeking, helping me to clarify what I want for myself, and lending her support and knowledge to the discussion in a proactive, affirming way that empowers me and helps me lean into my own autonomy and confidence. I could not recommend her as a therapist more.
