About me

I am a licensed counselor in both Texas and Alabama with over 11 years of professional work experience. Though I have experience working with a wide range of clients in a variety of professional settings, my specialties primarily include stress-related disorders, anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, family conflict, domestic violence, abuse and trauma.

My counseling approach is primarily Cognitive Behavioral (CBT); however, I also utilize an eclectic approach at times, including aspects of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Adlerian Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, as well as Motivational Interviewing techniques. I tailor my approach and treatment plan to meet the specific needs and challenges of each individual client, and I look forward to finding which treatment modality works best for you.

It takes courage to reach out and ask for help- to take those first steps toward change- or to break unhealthy habits and relationships. I believe we all possess attributes and strengths within that can ultimately assist us in healing from hard experiences and overcoming the challenges we face. I strive, as your therapist, to create an environment in which you feel safe to share your experiences, free of any bias or judgment, and I truly look forward to walking alongside of you as you take those hard, first steps. I am here to listen, support & empower you throughout your own personal journey toward health, healing, and change. I do my best to get your first appointment scheduled within one week. My schedule is somewhat flexible, so if the hours listed on my calendar do not work for you, just ask!

I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Laurie Gaddy. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Helpful and understanding with my situation.
