Thoughtful, kind, professional
Laura is creative in problem solving, cuts to the chase and is warm and intelligent.
It's uplifting to talk with Laura. Both my spouse and I feel totally at ease telling Laura things we would never share with another living soul. Within the first five minutes of our first meeting we both felt that. Laura has suggested things from both ends of the spectrum for the problem I am dealing with. From radical to medication. She is a no nonsense person and I appreciate that she gets straight to the point.
Laura has been very helpful. She is direct and honest, and works to remain neutral in our couples sessions. I feel validated and challenged appropriately and safely. I will continue to see Laura to grow and increase my tools to build relationships in a healthy way.
