Hi, I’m Dr Laura. My treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. I incorporate a blend of conventional and alternative approaches, drawing upon an eclectic variety of techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each individual client. With sensitivity and compassion, humor and perspective, I work with each client to help them build on their strengths, heal from past (or current) issues, and/or identify and achieve life goals.
I work with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are: relationships, marriage counseling, couples counseling, domestic violence, sexual abuse, rape, forensic psychology and other trauma related issues as well as depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anger management, LBGTQ, grief and loss, trauma, mid-life changes and related issues, kink, divorce and changing families, and other relationship issues.
In addition to my counseling practice, I was an adjunct professor at Hodges University where I created and taught a masters level counseling trauma course in the mental health counseling program. I have also been an adjunct at Florida Gulf Coast University in the criminal justice program. I also provide training seminars and presentations at conferences and local human services agencies on domestic violence, sexual abuse and rape, trauma, addictions, and forensic psychology
