About me

I am a licensed therapist (LPC) for the state of North Carolina, and have over five years of experience working with men, women, adolescents, and children of all ages. I counsel on variety of issues including, but not limited to, family violence, sexual assault/abuse, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, conflict resolution, multicultural issues, LGBT issues, parenting, couples counseling, and bereavement. It is my goal to provide services that will empower clients to reach their own conclusions regarding issues discussed during our counseling sessions.

I like to create a very warm and inviting experience, and approach each client with compassion, respect, and sensitivity. My approach combines different theoretical orientations such as person-centered, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, narrative, and family systems. I will adapt my counseling approach to fit your needs within our counseling sessions.

It takes a lot of strength and courage to reach out for help, and I am so glad you are here. I look forward to working with you!

Laura helped me to clarify my issues and define a clearer path. I am very appreciative as I was stuck in a rut and having difficulties going forward.

Laura Smith is an excellent counselor. She quickly responds to me with insightful replies. She uses tools like special worksheets to help me get better in areas where I need improvement. I would give her my highest recommendation.

A very pleasant person to talk to in times of loneliness. Our brief encounter led me into feeling better and less anxious. I recommend her, she always replies and is very helpful to talk to.

Laura is amazing at what she does. I have faith in the fact that she will help me through whatever I am going through and will not judge. She is there when I have nobody else to help me through. I am thankful for her and BetterHelp and all she does.
