About Me

Greetings!!!

My name is Laura Z. and my passion in life is empowering and guiding people through their own therapeutic journey, to find happiness, peace, and a better quality of life.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (Clinical Practice) in the State of South Carolina with over 8 years of experience as a clinician in a variety of settings, where I have worked with individuals, families, and facilitated psycho-educational and recreational groups. I have experience working with people of all populations, from children to seniors, with varying degrees of mental illnesses.

My character is empathetic, down-to-earth, and honest. Clients have reported that I am approachable yet professional, which makes others feel at ease especially when delving into sensitive trauma histories. That said, I am straight-forward and genuine. I enjoy working with an integrative therapy style, incorporating elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Problem-Solving Therapy, to name a few. I especially like to empower clients to take back their power and control over their lives, develop boundaries, and accomplish their therapeutic goals. It is my hope that I can meet you where you are in your journey, to encourage and guide you toward positive change. I do not believe therapy looks the same for everyone, so I am happy to work with you on a plan that will meet your needs. It is time to make strides toward feeling better and feeling more content in and with your life.

I look forward to working with you,
Laura Z.

Laura does an amazing job and cares about our needs. It’s a blessing to have someone that understands and listens during stressful moments in life. I highly recommend Laura to anyone that may be going through issues. She’s the best!

I have been working with Laura for about 3 weeks now and she has really helped me zero in on my true concerns and wade through superficial issues. Look forward to continued sessions with her.

I have enjoyed talking with Laura since day one. She has always helped me to amend my thinking and give myself some grace when things are stressful. I look forward to talking to her every time I schedule a meeting.

Great listener, takes lots of notes and expresses genuine interest. It’s clear she cares about her patients and responsibility as a counselor. Experienced and flexible, would be surprised if she was not for everyone.

She helps me understand what behind my anger ... gives me thoughts to work on to see triggers that may upset me

Work with me!
