About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who has more than 21 years of experience in a variety of counseling settings. My holistic approach to counseling addresses your physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. I approach therapy in a very integrative, client-centered manner. To ensure the highest quality care is provided, I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques including cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, solution-focused, psychoeducational, trauma-informed, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and more. I promote growth by offering a safe, accepting atmosphere in which you feel heard, validated, and empowered.

Laura was an awesome therapist! She set goals, did not sugar coat things, and called me out when necessary. She helped me to look at things from many perspectives, and offered ways to go about dealing with my concerns.
