Hello, I am a LCSW with 10+ years of clinical experience. The teen years have so many challanges, as does any life stage, and you are not alone- I would love to help you navigate your path and find your authentic self in this time. You may and not have any supports to go and get safe autonomy to express who you truly are. I strive to be a safe space for you. I have experience in Trauma-Informed care, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) based therapy, Mindfulness based therapies. I believe when working with teenagers, your privacy and trust is key! As long as you are not in danger of harming yourself or others, or know of any potential life threatening situations that would cause human harm, I will work with you to share what you feel is most beneficial with your guardians to empower sustainable change in your home, school and work life when you are read and it is safe- if sharing is therapeutically beneficial.
My areas of specialty are anxiety, depression, low self esteem, trauma/PTSD, grief and loss, ADHD/ADD, sensory processing challenges, and LGBTQ struggles.
My goal is to meet you where you are at in your life journey, and to empower you to identify goals and skills that bring you to a life long, healthy foundation by learning and utilizing pre-exisiting and new skills. I look forward to working with you and hope to hear from you and your family soon!

I am so glad we found TC and Laura! It’s been great to have the reassurance my girl is doing good after her trauma.
Laura is amazing! I really wasn’t expecting to be matched with someone so compassionate and understanding. I’m really grateful for her support and the things I’ve already learned in such a short time.
Laura Denkler is fantastic! She is very caring and supportive, she listens very well and communicates her ideas in a very simple and straightforward way. Very easy to get along with, and very likeable. I look forward to every session with her because I know she will understand and help me work through my issues.
