Laura has been great to work with so far! We have just started on this journey and she is very responsive to questions. I also use the journal feature which is great! She responds with different thoughts and insights that we will be able to discuss in our sessions. Thank you!

Really recommend seeking help from Laura. She has been so helpful to me, I look forward to my counseling session with her every week and I feel a sense of relief and hopeful after our session every week.
She offers many methods to cope with anxiety, intense emotions and eating disorder for me. I feel comfortable opening up to her about my personal problems.
Anyways, highly recommend :)

Laura listens to what I have to say and offers advice without bias. I feel heard and respected during our sessions. The worksheets she offered have already benefited my relationships. I am grateful for her expertise.

I've only had a couple of sessions with Laura so far, but she really helped me get through some tough times recently. Great advice and just a really amazing listener. Let's me kind of just vent but has ideas that can help me and a bevy of coping mechanisms. It's helpful to hear her perspective on things that I'm struggling with and just a huge weight off my back to have her as a support system. Her bio is impressive as well and she has a lot of experience with stuff that I've had problems with in the past and present. Sorry if there are any typos--I've been in the process of moving and my brain is totally fried. Thank goodness for Laura! Looking forward to our session tomorrow (:

She’s great and explains things so well! She lets me talk and vent and waits for me to finish, then she gives me great advice.

Laura and I have only had one video session so far, but she listened to me and helped me see things in a new light. She offered resources and guidance as well as compassion. I have worked with a counselor in the past, not through teen counseling, and often felt judged. I do not at all feel this way with Laura, more a feeling of understanding and open-mindedness, and we are just starting out, which is what I need. I look forward to growing and continuing therapy.
