As a Licensed Family Therapist , I am interested in looking at problems from within the multiple contexts which impact them.
We all have problems, and sometimes we just need a third party perspective to help develop the insight and skills needed to overcome. Using a collaborative approach, my goal is to work with children, teenagers, adults, couples and families to achieve solutions to overcome the barriers of living life successfully and relating meaningfully with others.

You've been going through it. Your partner, friends, and family see it too. You just want to move on with your life, but don’t know how. It happens to us all at some point, but you're still unsure about talking to someone. Going to therapy is a huge step for yourself because you've felt tired of be tired long enough. For me, therapy goes best as a conversation between people as if over coffee or tea. If this sounds like you, it looks like you're ready for a chat. I’m looking forward to joining your journey.

Laura has many years of clinical social work and life experiences including the following settings: military, children/teens, schools, family , adult, geriatric, homeless, and jails.
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.

My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, couple's work, and struggles with all forms of family relationships, but I am comfortable working with adolescents and adults who come to therapy with a wide range of concerns.
Helen Keller once said, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it." Although it is scary to acknowledge our pain and reach out for help, doing so is also a sign of strength and courage. I believe people do the best they can with what they have. My role is to help you utilize your strengths and share my expertise so you can develop new insights and skills to make positive life changes.

What most people find is that they struggle to share information with family or friends.
During this Covid Safe at Home time, all sessions are conducted via telehealth. Sessions range from 30 minutes (younger clients) to 60 minutes. Insurance companies continue to cover tele-health during this time, so there should not be an additional charge outside of your typical co-pay. For children under 8, I work with parents and caregivers using Child Parent Relationship Therapy. This allows me to work individually with parents to teach skills so that you may work with your child at home. These skills are lifelong skills, which most find to be extremely helpful!

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
