LAURIE HEATHERLY-PRATER

(MEd, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and sibling groups in a variety of settings. Some of the areas I have the most experience in are anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, life transitions, stress management, conflict resolution, positive parenting, relationship issues, and healthy family dynamics.

I strive to create a safe and supportive environment and believe in establishing a positive and collaborative relationship with you. I believe that each person’s journey is unique and will assist you with the necessary tools to use your own personal strengths to identify goals and will encourage and empower you to take charge of your own thoughts and behaviors in order to achieve personal growth and lead healthier lives.

My counseling style combines a person-centered approach combined with cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused techniques to assist you identifying your individual strengths and skills, helping you meet your unique and specific needs, and empowering you to set and achieve your goals.

It can be challenging to ask for help and you have shown courage by taking the first step toward a happier and healthier you. I am excited to help you in your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

Laurie is wonderful. She’s helped me so much in my short time with her. She’s incredibly relatable and supportive, but still offers great advice and coping mechanisms/techniques.
