Counseling Style

Laurie is a mental health professional who believes in the power of therapy for healing, growth and positive change. She enjoys working with adults, children and families using an eclectic approach to the therapeutic process. Laurie values people’s personal journeys offering therapeutic guidance, assistance with expansion of insight, a listening ear, an advocating voice and, at crucial times, a helping hand.


Having 15 years of counseling experience, Laurie uses her knowledge, intuition and training with a compassionate and philosophical focus. She uses modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and forms of Expressive Arts Therapy through a trauma-informed lens.
