My approach to therapy is warm and interactive. I strive to understand the whole person and believe in treating people with respect and compassion. My goal is to help you to find solutions to your current struggles by exploring the way in which you are looking at the problem and by helping you to identify solutions.

Laura is truly committed to her clients. She takes time to understand the "big picture" while being encouraging, and honest. Her professional insight and experience is seen in each communication. Laura has been a answer to prayer in helping me and my family. Counselors like her are hard to find and I thank God for Laura and teen counseling every day.
