Whether you’re new to therapy, or a veteran of many sessions, I will listen, join you where you are and encourage you to see yourself with more compassion. Together we will focus on your strengths and, without judging, explore how your circumstances, history and thoughts influence your views of yourself, others and the world. We’ll use cognitive techniques like CBT and ACT to help lower stress and depression by changing the way you think about yourself and focus on your values. To address trauma, I explore a variety of techniques including EMDR and IFS to alleviate anxiety, depression, acting out and feelings of vulnerability.
In the past, it was a stigma to have a mental illness or an emotional imbalance. Now it seems to be the norm for most of us to have difficulty finding balance in our increasingly complex world. It is also more mainstream to seek out a therapist to assist with dysfunctions, be they mild, intermediate or chronic. Clients seeking help with Laura Napora, LCSW can come from all walks of life and with an array of problems to work on. If you are looking for a personalized plan based on your circumstances and strengths, looking at small details and also at the "big picture" of your problems, this is your safe place.
Everyone experiences change throughout their lives, it’s what keeps us human. From welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world to grieving the loss of loved ones, our lives are constantly in transition. However, change is difficult. Adjusting to change can bring about stress, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, and depression. Yet, in these moments of change is where personal growth is cultivated. Are you experiencing a life change? Are you starting college, newly married, or changing careers? Are you moving, going through a divorce, or retiring? If so, therapy can help you navigate through this transition and grow in the process.

"Never underestimate a person's capacity for change." This motto has driven my approach to assisting others throughout my 10+ years as a helping professional. We all have a unique set of circumstances and experiences that shape us for better or worse. This sometimes results in difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviors. If you desire to overcome life's obstacles, therapy may be your opportunity. Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression or any other issue life may throw at you, empowerment and insight is just a step away.
Life experiences and circumstances not only shape us into who we are, but they also contribute to our overall wellness and mental health. Gender, race, age, sexual orientation, family relations, trauma, and addiction are all factors that impact our life. Sometimes these experiences and circumstances can make us feel isolated, misunderstood, or trapped. Making the decision to begin therapy is courageous; finding the right therapist to help you break free from the chains of the past or present can be life-changing. I look to incorporate a very warm, empathetic and inclusive approach with ALL clients.

"There can be no transforming of darkness into light ... without emotion." -Jung Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the core of my training. It embraces the belief systems of the past that affect your present. It's a state-of-mind that defines thinking that affects emotional awareness. To become aware is not to change, but to understand and accept. Carrying guilt or shame of the past, triggers the conflict of now. We don't offer advice - We offer choices - a chance to choose your own method of healing that fits you - not something others feel 'should' be. Come. Sit. Talk. Let's wander your path together.
