Announcement icon I am currently offering video or phone sessions through Zoom for all clients through this challenging COVID-19 situation.
Life presents a multitude of challenges to our capacity to remain grounded and balanced. Additional support can help through stressful and uncertain times. Through the process of therapeutic work, self-discovery can occur in a supportive environment. Whether you are seeking therapy to address anxiety, relationship issues, phase of life changes or depression, I will work collaboratively with you to help facilitate the insight you seek.
As a therapist, my approach is comforting, supportive, and focused. I utilize a wide range of therapeutic techniques tailored specifically for my clients, while at a core I am a solution-focused therapist. Together we can keep you motivated in creating the life you desire.
In July 2017 I studied with John & Julie Gottman, where I became level 1 Certified in Gottman Method couples counseling. I continue to take additional training to increase my competence as it relates to relationships, anxiety, and mindfulness.

Professional Connections

Laura is a wonderful therapist who is LGBTQ allied, kink allied, and alternative life style allied. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to work with a supportive and solution-focused therapist.

Would highly recommend for clients wanting a therapist that is well-versed in sexuality or women's issues.
