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 has been amazing. Have only been with her a short time but have already taken some very positive steps in my life which I am sure is because of her.

Laura is phenomenal! She listens actively and understands my concerns completely. The activities that she has recommended I do for anxiety along with different exercises has helped me significantly. She is such a breath of fresh air and I really look forward to our sessions every week. She is great!

Laura has been amazing to speak to. She is supportive, kind, and really listens to what is on your mind. She understands what I need in a session and helps me find peace through tools and exercises. Thank you Laura!

Laura has a good balance of letting me talk and then delivering positive impactful advice. Anything I talk about feels important, big or small. She has helped me see sides of myself I didn't know I had, or could achieve.

Working with Laura feels natural, and stress free. I have found a sense of self-worth and a voice with her help.

Laura is either extremely intuitive or extremely experienced or both. But she gets me, my priorities and makes me feel like we are both on the same page about my health.

Laura has been so wonderful! Checks in on me, provided me with tools to better manage my anxiety, and has been so supportive. I think she’s had such a positive impact on my mental health.

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.

Written by K.A. on Oct 12, 2018 after counseling with Laura for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and bipolar disorder

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.
