About me

My name is Laura Salazar, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor for Illinois and Texas with over seven years of experience. You are the expert on your own life. I am an expert in helping you outline and achieve your goals. Therapy is intended to prepare you for working through your life's issues as they happen with empowerment and knowledge. I would be honored if you would choose me to provide you with the tools to build the kind of life you want to have.

Together, we will create treatment plans outlining what you would like to accomplish in therapy. Based on those goals, I will use evidence based treatments that match with each goal. What I tend to use most often are Rogerian Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialetical Behavioral Therapy, Constructivism, and Art Therapy techniques. I have the most experience with depression, anxiety, stress management, grief/loss, trauma/abuse, self-esteem, intimacy/couples issues, and behavior change.

Laura is very professional and such a great listener. I never feel judged or thought less of when I talk to her. It’s only been a few sessions but I always feel better when I talk to her.

Laura is a very welcome, calming presence in my life. She offers sound advice and kind words when my head is spinning. I honestly don't know what I would do without her help, she really is one of a kind.
