"Worried Well" describes those who are dealing with life the best they can in spite of anxious thoughts, depressed moods, overwhelming stress, or grieving. Juggling demands of work and home, struggling with relationships or divorce or a loved one's addiction, or experiencing significant losses can make anyone doubt life will get better. Some feel guilty or selfish for experiencing these thoughts and feelings. Many question God or harbor anger and resentment toward others. Some are simply numb and can no longer find joy in the journey. You are not alone!
I have been there. I blend my years of life experience with a practical approach to counseling. I help clients discover strengths they already have to overcome pain and find hope. I help couples practice healthy ways of interacting to reconnect and move forward. When working with kids, 9 or older, I collaborate with parents so the family benefits.
I appreciate the courage it takes for someone to share past hurts and current emotions. I pray for all my clients, realizing I am only one part of the healing process. Life is hard, but there is joy enough for each of us. I welcome you reaching out. May you find the healing you long for. Blessings to you.

Professional Connections

I have known Lara for several years professionally and as a colleague. She is a wonderful counselor who is competent and knowledgable of various therapeutic modalities that are helpful for her clients. Lara encourages her clients to exceed beyond their expectations on the path towards healing and freedom. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking healing in relationships and various life situations.

Lara and I studied together in graduate school; I say this because I got to know Lara as a colleague and professional. She is as compassionate, encouraging and patient in the counseling room as she is in friendship. On top of that, her competence is outstanding. I would recommend her to my closest relationships for healing.
