Laura Smith

15 years of experience

Welcome! I’m Laura Smith and I have been practicing for 15 years in a variety of settings; specializing in Anxiety and Depressive disorders. I support young adults and adults through life’s challenges and transitions with the objective of regaining a sense of self and finding clarity amidst uncertainty. Whether you're navigating school or career challenges, relationship difficulties, or other stressful life events, I’m here to provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I will help you learn healthy ways to cope and seek solutions that allow you to move forward with confidence and purpose. In addition, I specialize in Perinatal and Maternal Mental Health and provide compassionate care to women navigating the complexities of fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, and parenthood. As a professional and mother, I recognize firsthand that life rarely follows a straight path, and the balancing act of motherhood can bring unexpected challenges and stress. Additional availability starting in July! Reach out to schedule a brief consultation at 860-578-2365 and learn more.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

My primary goal is to create a safe environment for you to feel empowered throughout the therapeutic journey. In our initial session I will gather relevant background information, current concerns, and discuss what you are looking to achieve so that we can collaborate together on goals for treatment. Throughout our work together, we’ll work towards building connections in your life and learn strategies for self-care and healing.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I believe that each day is a new beginning and an opportunity to learn and grow. There are many situations in life that are unexpected and out of our control; my role is to be a guide and help people through these difficult times so that you may gain a sense of peace and positivity in your life.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

In our work together we will explore your thoughts and feelings to bring awareness to how thought patterns can impact emotions, how you respond to situations and decisions you make. This can be especially helpful when struggling to manage stress and anxiety; the goal will be to learn ways to restructure or challenge unhelpul thought patterns and learn healthy ways of managing situations in your life.


Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed? Do you feel like you’ve lost a piece of yourself? I’m here to offer support and encouragement on your journey to self-discovery and greater well-being. Together, we will talk about and process experiences and situations, work to gain perspective and understanding. Ultimately my goal is to help you feel empowered and gain a positive mindset for making decisions, seeking solutions to problems and learning ways to cope with your concerns.
