As a counselor, I welcome any opportunity to facilitate both recovery from trauma and rediscovery of hope for my clients. I am committed to supporting people of all ages in difficult seasons of transition, and am particularly passionate about guiding families through the disappointment and pain of divorce. I have training in play therapy and grief support. My philosophy of counseling is profoundly shaped by my personal faith in Christ, but I always defer to the client to determine the role of spirituality. Whatever the plan we decide, the goal is the same: empowering lives, strengthening families and rediscovering hope.

I have over 25 years of experience working with children and families. I have gained insight and experience from a variety of professional endeavors including teaching high school social studies, coordinating children's programming in a local church, and volunteering for several local non-profits.

I am a Certified Parenting Coordinator with experience in supervised visitations. I have served as a counselor for abused and neglected children at a child advocacy center as well as a grief counselor to families. I am also a Divorce and Family Mediator that can help families mediate disputes in a facilitative fashion.

Laura is professional but also down-to-earth. It is not hard to connect with her, while also walking away with some tools to use! I highly recommend Laura to walk with you during a painful or anxious journey in life.
