About Me

Hello, my name is Laura. I have been counseling for over 15 years. My theoretical orientation is Existentialism, although I am inspired by CBT, REBT and most especially radical acceptance and mindfulness. I have experience working in psychiatric hospitals and with addictions and currently am the Program Director of an IOP. I am very open to using modern technology as a treatment modality and see it is the modern and convenient. It is a real pleasure to help you using this groundbreaking platform. I enjoy using unique and creative therapeutic techniques tailored to you as a person. I have a strong skill set in understanding the brain as well as personality and family as well as relationship dynamics and teen experiences.
A pleasure to meet you,
Laura

Laura offers very personal, yet direct guidance. She is not a traditionalist but find new more spiritual ways to examine and describe what is happening and how to focus on issues.

She is so amazing! She listens to what I have to say and gives feedback right on the mark. She makes me feel comfortable and confident.

I have only been in treatment with Laura for a short while. However, these are some absolutes: she is caring and has a warm bedside manner; she is punctual, even early to our chats; she always goes above and beyond what she can do to help you; she offers great tips and guides you towards new realizations about yourself and situations. I strongly recommend Laura.
