Laurie Patterson is not currently accepting new clients.

People often seek help because they feel trapped, powerless, and overwhelmed by their symptoms. Even though change is frightening, something in them is also telling them "you can't continue to live this way". They want to start living the life they always imagined themselves living. In my experience, when people reach the point that they call for help, they are at the perfect place to begin the work of therapy.

My approach stresses optimism, compassion, acceptance, and the provision of a confidential setting for the client to work on his or her healing journey. I am a patient listener and want to understand each person's unique story and needs. I provide psychoeducational, strengths-based, and client-centered interventions.

I am an LCSW and EMDR certified, and have 21 years of experience. I have worked with clients across the life span, and my practice focuses on helping people with life transitions, PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and family issues. I hope you take the time to call today.
