In clinical psychotherapy sessions, Laura’s therapeutic focus is helping individuals heal attachment wounds, reduce emotional discomfort, better tolerate distress and move forward in their life.
The initial goal of psychotherapy is often the immediate relief of distress related to a crisis, trauma, stagnation, or boundary setting. As the work deepens, your personal growth and ongoing well-being become the therapeutic focus, as you build confidence and make lasting changes in how engage with the dynamic world around you.
Laura’s treatment approach is psychodynamic and feminist. Laura’s clinical specialization is treating trauma, depression and anxiety, chemical dependency, chronic pain, and chronic illness.
Laura works primarily with individuals. Her office is a SAFE space. She welcomes people of all backgrounds and cultures into her office and she enjoys a diverse clientele including people of color, diverse faiths and ethnicities, LGBTQIA individuals, “millennials,” and older adults.
Life on Earth is challenging right now. Many of us are struggling to heal from abuse, sexism, and oppression, and make a positive impact on the world around us, which seems to be in chaos. Laura believes healing from trauma and oppression is your birthright and she warmly invites you into her therapeutic and life affirming practice.
Psychotherapy may be offered in office, by phone or by secure video conference.
