About

Making the decision to change your life takes courage. It's a big step to have decided that you want more from life and to be pursuing something different. Personal change, whether it involves emotions, thoughts or behaviors, can be difficult and scary. It can also be exciting and incredibly rewarding. Engaging in a therapeutic relationship can provide a safe and nurturing space. Together, we'll explore your inner world to find clarity, to understand your self-sabotaging patterns, identify the issues standing in your way and work to promote growth, emotional balance and self-acceptance, allowing you to become the best version of you
I enjoy working with clients of all ages, teens through older adults. My clients include individuals, couples and families who are committed to improving their lives. After understanding each client's individual needs, based upon the feedback that I receive about their goals, challenges and histories, I develop a unique, customized treatment plan for each.
I will encourage you to push beyond your comfort level in an effort to uncover new tools that will help you to create the positive change you're looking to achieve (independence, clarity, solutions to challenges, healthier relationships) Most clients are able to make positive and lasting modifications, freeing them from their unhealthy patterns.

Laurie A Kaman's Groups

Medical Trauma (process & psycho-education group)

This process group is designed for patients and support/care-givers of patients diagnosed with life-altering medical diagnoses. The aim is to help members better understand and manage the psychological impact of medical diagnoses of all types, lessening isolation, increasing social networks and addressing significant and ongoing adjustment challenges for both patients and their support-providers. Goals also include managing depression, stress and frustration, creating empowerment through psycho-education and sharing of information, resources and experiences.
