Welcome! As a therapist I have a warm and authentic relationship with my clients. At times life can be overwhelming and challenging, I offer services to children, adolescents, and adults to help navigate those times. My hope is to give my clients a nonjudgmental space in which they feel they can be honest about their thoughts and feelings while also learning and implementing new tools and skills to better their lives. I am passionate about working with not only children and adolescents but the parents, caregivers, and service providers in their lives. Today’s fast paced world can feel lonely and demanding to individuals. Sessions are based on personal needs and therefore will not look the same for every client.

Life is hard- we all need a little help and support on the journey. I see myself as walking beside the people I work with. Some need to look into the past and process it, receive a different perspective on it. Some have a specific goal in mind like decreasing anxiety by learning new skills in a short period of time. Others need a listening ear, with some insights sprinkled in. Kids need to play. Adults at times benefit from clarity and analysis. What do you need? I believe the interpersonal connection between counselor and client can be healing in and of itself. People are ones that hurt us, we're also the ones that heal each other.

Do you feel like something is holding you back? Getting in your way? Many people run into barriers- barriers that keep them from achieving their goals, get in the way of their relationships or keep them from moving on. These barriers can look like anxiety, depression, trauma, communication patterns, etc. This is where I can help! I have worked with crisis services and trauma survivors my whole career; and trauma can look different for everyone! I enjoy nothing more than helping clients identify the barriers that are holding them back, constructing a plan to break it down and take steps towards doing so. I have a Marriage and Family Therapist License in addition to my Clinical Counselor License, so couples are a passion of mine as well.

I integrate holistic healing modalities that focus on the mind-body connection including relaxation/stress reduction techniques, guided imagery, visualization, meditation, somatic practices, incorporating polyvagal theory, QiGong, Reiki, pet therapy, creative arts, and movement techniques. For me, the therapeutic process is a learning process, one of exploration and healing. The client is the expert in his/her/their experience. I am here to guide you, to help you reach your goals, and to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

My name is Laura and I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2016 with my Master's degree in Social Work. I've worked with multiple populations including adults with severe mental illness with comorbid addiction issues, adults and adolescents with acute trauma, adults with anxiety and depression, the geriatric population and crisis intervention. My passion lies working with people in a clinical setting, long term. Have you found yourself struggling to manage daily activities? Are you feeling overwhelmed by constant pressure in your life? Sometimes we feel like things are going well and then we hit a wall out of nowhere. Maybe you’re struggling with anxiety and trying to figure out how to cope with it or the depression is getting worse and you're having a hard time getting out of bed. Please remember, you are not alone. Since the pandemic started in 2020, we’re all working to find our new “normal,” whatever that may look like. I believe in treating the whole person and will gladly help guide you along this path. I am committed to seeing you succeed and live your best life!
