About Me

Hello! I am a clinical social worker in the Kansas City area. I have over 6 years of experience working with with people of all ages and backgrounds. My passion is working with people who were victims of childhood trauma. I also really enjoy working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, women's health issues, career difficulties and stress management issues. In addition, I have a lot of experience working with people who are experiencing grief over the sudden loss of a loved one.

My counseling approach is conversational and laid back. My goal is to start where you, my client, are ready to begin, and move on from there. I utilize many approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths based, humanistic, narrative, and psycho-dynamic. The fact is, each client is different so my approach is going to vary from client to client. I can assure you that if you work with me, I will treat you with compassion, respect, and kindness.

I understand that the scariest step can be reaching out for help. Whenever you are ready, I am here.

Written by L.A. on Dec 03, 2018 after counseling with Laura for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Laura has been awesome so far. I was a little apprehensive to the idea of therapy so going with the online version was perfect for me. Laura has been so sensitive and respectful of my needs and that feels so good! I look forward to talking with her, because truthfully she doesn't make me feel crazy! I've made a friend in Laura and it's been magnificent.
