Hello! my name is Laura and I am a Licensed Mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I have worked for over 20 years with teens and children in the school system and have experience in addictions, family relationships, Mental Health issues, trauma and spent time counseling teens in crisis clinics. I have spent of a lot of my counseling with teens and children doing both individual and group counseling. The many issues that were addressed have been impulse control, Family adjustment issues (divorce) anger management, grief issues and social skills. I believe in building a positive rapport with the young people I work with so they feel comfortable and are able to talk with me about things that are preventing them to move forward. My counseling approach is cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and trauma therapy. Together me and your teen can address issues they can work on. We can talk about them adhering to their own basic needs and begin building their self-esteem so they are prepared to interact with their peers and make healthy decisions. I would love to work with your teen and hope that we can take the journey together of self-discovery and happiness!

While we are still fairly new to working with Laura, both my daughter and I have found her to be both caring and patient as we navigate the waters of an emotionally tumultuous ex-husband/father. Laura has helped to provide both insight and tools for working through his erratic behaviours.
Laura helped me greatly and listened to me at times when i thought I wasn’t worth listening to. I would definitely recommend her.
